Bauchi government approves Nuhu Wabi as new Emir of Jama’are

BAuchi State Governor Bala Muhammed has approved the appointment of Alhaji Nuhu Ahmed Wabi as the new Emir of Jama’are.

The governor gave his approval in a brief ceremony in Jama’are, Bauchi on Monday, where the new emir received his appointment letter.

Bala was represented by the state government secretary, lawyer Ibrahim Kashim.

Nuhu Wabi’s appointment came three weeks after the death of his father, Alhaji Ahmadu Muhammadu Wabi, who died on February 5, 2022. He ruled for 52 years.

Governor Bala said Nuhu Wabi’s appointment followed “a thorough and thorough consideration of the names recommended by the kingmakers of the Jama’are Emirate Council”.

He congratulated the new Emir and urged him to discharge his duties in the best interests of his people.

The new emir is committed to establishing a harmonious working relationship with the other emirates in the state.

Nuhu Wabi is the eldest son of the late Emir. Until his new appointment, Alhaji Wabi was the Yarima (crown prince) of Jama’are.

The new Emir was born in Jama’are in 1961. He attended Jama’are Central Primary School; Kuranga Azare Government Secondary School and the University of Jos.

The new Emir worked with the Federal Ministry of Public Works for four years before returning to civil service in Bauchi State as an administrative officer. He retired in 2013 as permanent secretary.
