The Northern Governors Forum has congratulated Alhaji Ahmed Nuhu Bamalli over his appointment as the 19th Emir of Zazzau.
Chairman of the Forum and Governor of Plateau State Simon Bako Lalong, described the appointment of the new Emir as a good omen for the people of the Zauzzau Emirate, Kaduna State and Nigeria as a whole.
In a statement by his Director of Press and Public Affairs Makut Simon Macham, Governor Lalong said the l
appointment was a worthy opportunity given to him by God to serve his people like his ancestors did and also surpass their achievements because of the rich heritage they have passed down to him.
Lalong reminded the monarch that he was ascending the throne at a time when the nation and Northern region in particular is facing serious challenges of insecurity, poverty, illiteracy and health burden despite its rich human and material endowments.
He assured the royal father that the Northern Governors Forum will support his reign and also benefit from his wisdom and influence as he works to emancipate the region from the myriad of challenges confronting it.
