Yusuf, son of Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari was today in Katsina turbaned as the district head of Kwasarawa in Daura.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Senate President Ahmad Lawan, state governors and other top government functionaries attended the ceremony.
The governors in attendance include Aminu Bello Masari of Katsina and Kano State Governor, his counterpart from Kano, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje.
Yusuf Buhari was turbaned as Taliban Daura by the Emir of Daura, Alhaji Umar Farouk.
President Buhari and his wife, Aisha are both unable to attend the ceremony as they are currently away in Turkey for a summit.
The Emir of Daura, Alhaji Umar Farouk had days ago 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.
