ZAMFARA STATE GOVERNMENT ORDERS MONARCHS TO SEEK PERMISSION TO AWARD TITLES.
The Zamfara State Governor, Dr. Bello Mohammed (Matawallen Maradun) has directed traditional Institutions in the state to seek approval from the state Government before awarding and conferring traditional titles.
The Governor mentioned that all Emirs, Senior District Heads and District Heads in the state are hereby directed to officially seek permission and clearance from the State Government before conferring traditional titles to anyone and this directive is necessary in order to check indiscriminate award and possible abuse of the traditional institution.
He also warned that compliance to this directive is mandatory and failure to adhere to it will attract serious reprimand from the State Government.
Recall that a traditional title was controversially bestowed on a bandit last week by the Yandoto Emirate, a development that did not go down well with majority of people within and outside the state.
