Prince of Zazzau

Our purpose is to challenge the appointment of Emir of Zazzau. Iyan Zazzau was selected by the kingmakers, according the customary law. Governor El-Rufai wrongfully appointed Ambassador Ahmed Bamalli. The case is currently in court given the incorrect decision.

However, our challenge is not only for the stool of Zazzau but to ensure tradition of the entire Emirates are maintained  in the Northern Nigeria, and beyond.


In the traditional institution, such as that of the emirates of northern Nigeria, legitimacy to occupy the throne is acquired through the votes of the traditional king makers. And, in the minds and eyes of the people, the votes of the kingmakers are “vox populi”, and thus, vox dei – the voices of the people are the voices of God.
