Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero is the new emir of Bichi, one of the newly created emirates in Kano State. He will be installed tomorrow at the Kofar Mata Indoor Sports Hall, amidst reports of a court order stopping the creation of the Emirates.
The Sarkin or district heads of Karaye, Gaya and Rano, are the three other emirs appointed by the government following the enactment of Kano Emirs Appointment and Deposition Amendment Law 2019 by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
Alhaji Tafida Abubakar 11 will become the emir of Karaye and Alhaji Ibrahim Abdulkadir Gaya, the emir of Gaya.
Dr Ibrahim Abubakar 11 will become the emir of Rano.

The Commissioner of Information, Malam Muhammad Garba, said the new emirs would receive their letters of appointment on Saturday at Sani Abacha Indoor Stadium.
Bayero, the new emir of Bichi, was the Wamban Kano, a position given to him by the present emir of Kano, Muhammed Sanusi II.
Bayero then succeeded Alhaji Abbas Sanusi, who was promoted to the rank of Galadima following the death of late Galadiman Kano Tijjani Hashim.
