The emirate council of Adamawa state has conferred the title, ‘Jagaban Adamawa’, on Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.

Muhammadu Musdafa, the most prominent traditional ruler in the state, honoured Osinbajo at a ceremony in the state on Thursday.

The nation’s number two citizen is currently on a one-day working visit to Adamawa.

Laolu Akande, spokesman of the vice-president, shared some information about the visit on his twitter handle.

“The Lamido confers VP with the honorary title- ‘Jagaban Adamawa’ meaning front-runner of Adamawa, with a colorful presentation of a horse,” Akande wrote on twitter.

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

“VP assures that even if it may not be easy, we shall see a new Nigeria soon, noting that rebuilding of Adamawa and north-east region has started.”

In 2006, Borgu, a kingdom in Niger state, named Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and an ally of Osinbajo, as ‘Jagaban’.

Of all Tinubu’s traditional titles, ‘Jagaban’, which means warrior, is the most popular.

His political associates and admirers call him by the name.

    Unless they get accolades from the masses and citizens who voted them into office, they receive titles from the elite class in vain. What a nonsense of a title.
