The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai has approved the appointment of his close friend and ally, Amb. Ahmed Nuhu-Bamalli as the new Emir of Zazzau.

Nuhu-Bamali is succeeding Dr. Shehu Idris who died on Sunday, September 20, after reigning for 45 years.

The appointment is contained in a statement signed on Wednesday by the state commissioner of Local Government Affairs, Ja’afaru Ibrahim-Sani.

According to reports, Ambassador Bamalli is a direct descendant of Musa Bamalli, the flag-bearer and first Fulani Emir of Zazzau who ruled from 1804 to 1821.

His father, H.E. Nuhu Bamalli, held the position of Magajin Gari – the second most important princely title in the Zazzau Emirate – for 40 years.

Mr Bamalli acted in the capacity of Magajin Gari, representing his father in public functions for twenty years. He was officially appointed to the position in 2001, following his father’s demise.

From his mother’s side, he is a direct descendant of the Islamic Scholar and founder of the Fulani empire, Usman Danfodio.

His mother is the daughter of Abdulrahman Dikko, and the great-granddaughter of Sultan Aliyu Babba and Sultan Muhammadu Bello, as well as Shehu Usman Danfodio.
He is currently the leader of the Mallawa dynasty.

Until his appointment as Emir of Zazzau, he held the title of Magajin Garin Zazzau and served as Nigeria’s ambassador to Thailand, with concurrent accreditation to Myanmar.
He has been a permanent commissioner in the Kaduna State Independent Electoral Commission in 2015.

He has worked in banking and as Executive Director and later acting Managing Director of the Nigerian Security Printing and Minting Corporation.

He was a staff of the Abuja Metropolitan Management Agency before a stint as head of Human Resources at MTel, the mobile communications arm of the old Nigerian Telecommunications Limited (NITEL).

Born in 1966, Alh. Bamalli studied Law at the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria.
He holds a master’s degree in International Relations and Diplomacy and a diploma in Organisational Leadership from Oxford University.

He is also a fellow on Conflict Resolution of the University of York, United Kingdom (UK).
