The appointment of Nuhu Wabi came three weeks after the death of his father, Alhaji Ahmadu Muhammadu Wabi, who passed away on February 5, 2022. He reigned for 52 years.
Governor Bala said the appointment of Nuhu Wabi followed “due and careful consideration of the names recommended by the kingmakers of Jama’are Emirate Council”.
He congratulated the new emir and urged him to discharge his duties in the best interest of his people.
The new emir pledged to establish a harmonious working relationship with other emirates in the state.
Nuhu Wabi is the eldest son of the late emir. Until his new appointment, Alhaji Wabi was the Yarima (Crowned Prince) of Jama’are.
The new emir was born in Jama’are in 1961. He attended Jama’are Central Primary School; Government Secondary School Kuranga Azare and the University of Jos.
The new emir worked with the federal ministry of works for four years before he returned to the Bauchi State Civil Service as an administrative officer. He retired in 2013 as a permanent secretary.
