[Adamawa]–The Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo, has just been conferred with the Chieftaincy title of Jagaban by the Lamido Adamawa, Muhammadu Barkindo Aliyu Musdafa.

This was made known by Laolu Akande, his spokesman via twitter on Thursday.

“The Lamido confers VP with the honorary title- “Jagaban Adamawa” meaning front-runner of Adamawa, with a colorful presentation of a horse.

“After colorful Durbar parade in honor of VP, he accepts honorary title with greetings from President Buhari, “in-laws” to Adamawa people.” He added.

Osinbanjo who is on a one-day official visit to the state assures that even if it may not be easy, a new Nigeria soon is enroute, and he noted that rebuilding of Adamawa and the Northeastern region has started.

The new chieftaincy title is coming after a few weeks after the professor was given the title of ‘Enyioha 1’ by Abia traditional rulers while on a working visit to the state last month.

It should be noted that in 2006, the Emir of Borgu in Niger State, Hrh Alh. (Senator) Haliru Dantoro Kitoro III [Mai Borgu] had earlier named National Leader of the All Progressives Congress(APC), Senator (Asiwaju) Bola Tinubu as the Jagaban of Borgu Kingdom.
