The second Emirate is Bazai, also with a second class Emir to comprise of Bazai, Jangeru, Galadi, Katuru, Birnin Yaro, Tungar Kaho and Tubali districts with headquaters at Jangeru.

Governor Matawalle expressed the hope that the new development will strengthen the existing bond of quality of traditional leadership at the grassroots level, pointing out that his government will always satisfy the yearnings and aspirations of the people especially when they are in tune with the developmental policies of his administration.

He called on the affected Emirate Councils to be constituted to use the new opportunities at their doorstep to foster more unity and instil more cohesion and discipline in the society as inherited from our forefathers.
