Published date: November 25, 2018 | Category: Nigerian News Today | Location: Yola, Adamawa, Nigeria

Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has been formally turbaned as the seventh Waziri of Adamawa Emirate.

The position of Waziri makes the former vice-president next to the Lamido of Adamawa, Muhammadu Barkindo, in the hierarchy in the emirate.

Speaking at the occasion, Barkindo said Atiku was honoured with the title of Waziri because of his immense contributions to the development of Nigeria, particularly Adamawa state, where his impact is felt in various sectors.

“Atiku has also contributed greatly to unifying the people of Adamawa and providing useful advise to the emirate,” he said.

“The position of Waziri, which is the highest in the council puts him in charge of administration of the emirate and is given to people who are educated, honest and God fearing.

“It’s not hereditary and can go to anyone who deserves it.”

While urging the new Waziri to continue to carry everyone along and unite the people of Adamawa for more development, Barkindo advised all other traditional title holders to and cooperate with the new Waziri.

In his remarks, President Muhammadu Buhari, represented by the FCT Minister, Alhaji Musa Bello, congratulated Atiku for the esteemed position given him and wished him a successful reign.

Also speaking, former president Olusegun Obasanjo, commended Lamido for upgrading Atiku from Turaki to Waziri.

“I assure you that he will carry out his tasks with dignity, respect, honour and you will be proud of him,” Obasanjo said.

In his acceptance speech, Atiku assured the emirate council and traditional institution of his commitment to continue to work for peace and unity of the emirate and the nation in general.

The turbaning ceremony was graced by Senate President Bukola Saraki, Speaker Yakubu Dogara, former president Goodluck Jonathan, his vice Namadi Sambo as well as governors of Gombe, Taraba, Sokoto and Bayelsa states.
