The Emir of Daura has given an explanation as to why the son of President Muhammadu Buhari was given a title recently.
The president’s son Yusuf Buhari will be turbaned as the Taliban Daura on Saturday, December 18 and become the District Head of Kwasarawa.
The Emir, Alhaji Umar Farouk stated that the reason for offering Yusuf the title was to prevent him from strolling around Abuja and Yola, his mother’s hometown.
He said: “We are giving him this title to reciprocate all the good things his father, President Muhammadu Buhari, has done to Daura.
“Even if you don’t like Buhari, you know that Daura of today is different from what it were six years ago. So, to reciprocate this gesture, we gave him the title of Talban Daura, which he gave to his only son, Yusuf. This will prevent him from strolling around Yola (his mother’s hometown) and Abuja.
“From University of Transport Technology to Federal Polytechnic, to good roads networks and many other development projects, Daura is today better than some states in the country, development-wise.
“We have many sons in Daura who excelled have excelled, but do not want to be associated with it, so Buhari stands out among them.”
