Prior to his appointment, three prospective candidates were  nominated for the position of which Bayero emerged as top on the list.

It will be recalled that Sanusi who was until Monday morning was the 14th Emir of Kano before he was dethroned by Ganduje over disrespect to the office of the governor and other government agencies.

The SSG noted that Sanusi was in total disrespect to lawful instructions from the Office of the State Governor and other lawful authorities, including his persistent refusal to attend official meetings and programmes organized by the government without any lawful justification which amount to total insubordination.

Until his elevation as Emir of Kano, Bayero was the Emir of Bichi, one of the four newly created emirates, and a Mass Communication degree holder from Bayero University, Kano.
