Emir urges lead­ers to be fair, just

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Atika Balal, Katsina

The Emir of Daura in Katsina State, Al­haji Umar Faruk Umar, has called on per­sons in lead­er­ship po­si­tions to be fair in their deal­ings and just to the people at all times.

He spoke in Daura, dur­ing the tur­ban­ing cer­e­mony of Deputy Comp­trol­ler of the Nigeria Cus­toms Ser­vice, Ja­faru Tukur Gi­dado, as Kaiga­man Daura.

Umar also called on well-to-do Nige­ri­ans to help the poor and needy at all times.

Speak­ing on the ti­tle be­stowed upon Gi­dado, the emir said he is most de­serv­ing as he has done much for the de­vel­op­ment of the emi­rate.

“Our emi­rate has never given any­one a ti­tle based on any in­cen­tive. Ev­ery ti­tle has been based on merit and given par­tic­u­larly to those that have con­trib­uted to the de­vel­op­ment of Daura,” he said.

He urged Gi­dado to con­tinue to be pa­tient, cau­tious and God fear­ing in his deal­ings.

“If you have a kind heart God sees you and will re­ward you ac­cord­ingly and if you have a bad heart you will be re­warded ac­cord­ingly. Your deeds will take you to your fi­nal des­ti­na­tion in the hereafter,” Umar said.

Gi­dado is a grad­u­ate of his­tory from the Ah­madu Bello Univer­sity, Zaria. He joined the Nigeria Cus­toms Ser­vice in 1980.
