The Sul­tan of Sokoto, Al­haji Sa’ad Abubakar, has con­ferred the tra­di­tional ti­tle of Matawallen Sokoto on the Speaker of the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives, Al­haji Aminu Waziri Tam­buwal.

The Sul­tan, who spoke at the tur­ban­ing cer­e­mony for district heads re­cently ap­pointed by Sokoto State Gover­nor Aliyu Wa­makko, said the ti­tle given to Tam­buwal was in ap­pre­ci­a­tion of “his cred­i­ble style of lead­er­ship at the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives and con­tri­bu­tions to sus­tain­able peace and unity of Nigeria”.

He how­ever added that the ti­tle would be con­ferred on the speaker at a for­mal event. The Sul­tan, who noted that the ap­point­ment of the district heads would help in bring­ing govern­ment closer to the grass­roots, urged the ap­pointees to do all things with the fear of God.

He also stressed the need for them to give pri­or­ity to the wel­fare, se­cu­rity and so­cioe­co­nomic de­vel­op­ment of the people, while urg­ing them to steer clear of pol­i­tics.
