President Buhari’s Son, Yusuf Bags Chieftaincy Title In Daura



The son of President Muhammadu Buhari, Yusuf Buhari has bagged the chieftaincy title of Talban Daura.

The conferment of the title was announced by the Emir of Daura, Dr. Umar Faruk Umar during a meeting at his palace which was also attended by President Buhari, TrackNews Online reports.

He said a date would be announced for the turbaning ceremony of the President’s son, which might likely be before his marriage.

The Emir, according to a statement by Buhari’s spokesman, Mallam Garba Shehu also announced the creation of a District in the community of the President, with headquarters in Dimurkol.

He said the turbaning of young Buhari and the creation of the District was to further extend and deepen the long relationship between the Palace and the family.

He said the decision has the blessings of the kingmakers in Daura Emirate Council.

During the visit, the Palace used the opportunity to clarify the difference between two titles, Talban Hausa, given to Alpha Conde, the President of Guinea, and Talban Daura designated for Yusuf, the President’s son.

The Palace explained that Daura, as the linchpin of the Hausa society had conferred titles that have bearing on the Hausa Kingdom and those that are specific to the Emirate.

Meanwhile, former Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson has warned President Muhammadu Buhari against signing the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) into law.

Dickson said the PIB as passed by the National Assembly is capable of causing fresh uprisings in the Niger-Delta region and therefore urged the President to withhold his assent.

He said before the President should assent the bill, it is necessary to adjust some of the amendments made by the lawmakers to accommodate the five per cent allocation to the host communities so as not to disturb the relative peace in place in the region at the moment.
