The Kano State Governor, Umar Ganduje, has approved the appointment of His Highness Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero as the 15th Emir of Kano, after the nomination of 3 prospective candidates by the Kano Emirate Kingmakers.
Aminu Bayero, who is the son of late Emir Ado Bayero, replaces Muhammad Sanusi II, who was dethroned and banished to Nasarawa on Monday.
Aminu, a Mass Communication graduate of Bayero University, Kano, was first appointed as district head of Nasarawa in 1990 by his late father. He was named the emir of Bichi in 2019 after Kano State governor Umar Ganduje divided the Kano Emirate into four.
Before being named the emir of Bichi, Ado Bayero was named district head of Nassarawa and Dan Maje Kano in 1990 by his late father Ado Bayero.
He was later promoted to Dan Buran Kano and then named Turakin Kano.
Ado Bayero was also Sarkin Dawakin Sakarin Gida Kano before elevated to Wamban Kano and then named emir of Bichi.
