Bauchi APC chairman turbaned as ‘Garkuwan Ningi’


Emir of Ningi in Bauchi state, Alhaji Yunusa Danyaya, has turbaned Bauchi state APC chairman, Alhaji Uba Nana as ‘Garkuwan Ningi.

According to the Emir, the choice, and turbaning of Uba Nana as a member of the emirate was as a result of his humanitarian activities, especially in the area of youth empowerment, through his strong commitment to helping the less privileged and facilitating developments to the local government.

The Emir described the APC chieftain as a very industrious person who is dedicated to “doing good to all and sundry”, maintaining that the emirate recognises selfless service.

Danyaya stated that the award of the traditional title was a special way of showing his personal appreciation and that of the entire people of Ningi Emirate to the politician and to reciprocate his dedication and philanthropic gestures, especially, to the people of Ningi.

He further said that the timing for the turbaning was deliberate, explaining that special people deserve special time to be rewarded.

“The ceremony today is now part of the history of Ningi Emirate”.

He said the traditional title was conferred on Nana a long time ago, but he was now officially turbaned and recognised as a council member in the Emir of Ningi’s council.
