Rotimi Amaechi turbanned in Daura
Political leaders in the country have been urged to build bridges of understanding across political and regional divides in the interest of the country’s unity and sustainable development.
The Emir of Daura, Alhaji Umar Faruk Umar made the call at his palace in Daura on occasion of the turbaning of the Minister of Transport, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi as the Dan Amanar Daura.
The Emir noted that Nigeria could only achieve its development goals if leaders inculcate the values of mutual love and respect among the diverse ethnic groups in the country.
While describing Mr. Amaechi as a bridge builder that has supported President Muhammadu Buhari both in and out of office, the Emir said the minister was turbanned in appreciation of his loyalty to the emirate.
He listed the ongoing rail project from Kano to Daura to Katsina to Maradi and the University of Transportation, Daura, as some of the projects that have endeared Mr Amaechi to the people of Daura.
Our correspondent reports that the event was attended by friends, family, political associates and well-wishers of the Transport Minister.
