Emir of Zazzau appoints son as new Walin Zazzau

The Emir of Zazzau, Malam Ahmed Nuhu Bamalli, CFR, has appointed his first son, Abdullahi Ahmed Bamalli, as the new Walin Zazzau. This decision follows the demise of the former Walin Zazzau and District head of Ikara, Engineer Aminu Umar, who passed away after a brief illness.

The title of Wali in Zazzau emirate is the third in hierarchy among district head positions held by royal princes, after the titles of Madaki and Magajin Gari respectively. Abdullahi Bamalli’s Great-Grand Father, late Walin Zazzau, Halliru, also once held this title.

Additionally, the Emir has approved the appointment of Engineer Sani Galadima Umar, a younger brother to the late Walin Zazzau, as the new Yariman Zazzau. The former Yariman Zazzau, Alhaji Munir Jafaru, has been elevated by the emir to the title of ‘Madaki Zazzau.’

Abdullahi Ahmed Bamalli, the Emir’s first son and newly appointed Walin Zazzau, is a Software Engineer trained at Coventry University, UK. He has previously worked at Etisalat and the Central Bank of Nigeria. Despite his illustrious background, Abdullahi remains committed to serving his community, upholding tradition, promoting unity, and fostering progress in Zazzau Emirate. He is married with a son.

The date for the turbanning of the New Wali and Yariman Zazzau will be announced at a later time.
