The Emir of Kano, HRH Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero has turbaned two new kingmakers; they are Sarkin Bai and Walin Kano.

The colorful event took place at the Emir’s palace on Friday.

Alh. Bashir Mahe Bashir Wali is now the Walin Kano. He succeeded his father, Mahe Bashir Wali, who recently resigned from his position on health grounds.

Alh. Mansur Mukhtar, a former Minister of Finance and current Vice President of the Islamic Development Bank is now the ninth Sarkin Bai.  

His father was the longest-serving member of the Kano Emirate Council.

He served for 63 years as district head, councilor and kingmaker before he died at the age of 95.
