JUST IN: Zamfara Restricts Emires Granting Chieftaincy Titles

Zamfara state Governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle has ordered traditional institutions to seek the state government’s approval before granting traditional titles to anybody in the state.

Zailani Bappa, Special Adviser Public Enlightenment, Media and Communications to the governor in a statement said, “All Emirs, Senior District Heads and District Heads in the state are hereby directed to officially seek permission from the State Government before conferring traditional titles to anyone.

“The directive becomes necessary in order to check indiscriminate award and possible abuse of the traditional institution.

“Henceforth, no Emir, Senior District Head or District Head must appoint anybody into any traditional office without securing official permission and clearance from the state Government.

“Compliance to this directive is now mandatory and failure to it will attract serious reprimand from the State Government”, the Governor cautioned in the statement.

WikkiTimes recalls how a notorious bandit, Ado Aliero was conferred a title by Yandoto Emirate which triggered a national condemnation.
