Emir of Bichi Aminu Ado Bayero on Monday, March 9, 2020 has been announced as the new Emir of Kano. He replaces the just deposed Lamido Sanusi.
The announcement was made by the secretary to the state government, Usman Alhaji a few hours after the removal of Muhammadu Sanusi II.
The appointment, which takes immediate effect, is in line with the provision of Kano state Emirate Council Law 2019. “Section 11 (1) of the Law has empowered the governor to appointment Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero as the emir of Kano,” according to Mr. Alhaji.
The secretary to the state government said the four kingmakers of Kano emirate had earlier recommended the appointment of Aminu Ado Bayero as the emir of Kano.
Bayero is the 15th emir under the Fulani Dynasty.
Until his appointment as emir of Kano, Bayero was the emir of Bichi, one of the four newly created emirates. Bayero is a graduate of Mass Communication from Bayero University Kano.
He was also a former Danmajen Kano, Dan Buran, Sarkin Dawakin Tsakar Gida and Wamban Kano.
He was later appointed emir of Bichi after the creation of Karaye, Gaya, Rano and Bichi Emirates by the present administration.
