Emir Of Daura Reveals Why He Turbaned Amaechi

The Emir of Daura, Alhaji Faruk Umar has reacted to the claims that he was paid to turban Nigeria’s Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi as Dan Amanar Daura (Trusted son of Daura).

Naija News reports that Amaechi was in the last weekend trusted with the traditional title in President Muhammadu Buhari’s home town.

Reacting, however, to naysayers on the turban of the minister, Umar said Amaechi was deserving of the position and he never gave him the traditional title because of money.

Umar insisted that the minister didn’t give him money but his appointment was to reciprocate his gesture to the emirate.

The Emir said people like Amaechi deserved a traditional title in the Emirate “because they have proven reliable”.

“We are Muslims and our religion allows us to respect those who respect us. If I turban anyone, it’s not because he gave us money or we want something from that person, we turban people irrespective of their religion or tribe.

“You are living witnesses that we have turbaned a lot of people in this country and even beyond. You know that we don’t do what we do for monetary gain.”

Naija News reports that the traditional ruler said this while conferring on Amechi, Dan Amanar Daura, in his palace at Daura, Katsina State on Saturday.

He added, “I would like to remind you that the good things the minister brought to this emirate are countless, but we’ve seen the University of Transport Technology that he has cited here, we’ve seen the railway that has been cited here to the Niger Republic. Because of that rail line, we will have a station here where our people’s business will progress.”
