Nigeria’s Senate President, Dr Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan will on Sunday be turbaned as Magayaki of Kaiama Emirate, according to his Special Adviser on Media, Mr. Ola Awoniyi.
The statement on Saturday said the Kaiama Emirate Council in Kwara State will honour the President of the Senate with the chieftaincy title because of the protective roles he has played in the state.
It said, “Lawan will be turbaned as Magayaki of Kaiama Emirate, which means the lead warrior that ensures the Emirate is protected, survives and progresses.
“This honour is being bestowed on Lawan in recognition of his support for development in the Emirate and his exemplary leadership of the Ninth Senate.”
Kaiama is in the Kwara North Senatorial District and is currently being represented in the Senate by Senator Sadiq Umar.
