Visiting Guinea President conferred with the traditional title of “Talban-Daura”

Emir of Daura, Alhaji Umar Farouq, on Sunday conferred the traditional title of “Talban-Daura” on the President of Guinea, Alpha Conde who is on a visit to Nigeria.

Farouq said that the title was conferred on President Conde in recognition of the love he has for President Muhammadu Buhari and Nigeria.

“Today is a historic day in the history of the emirate, Katsina State and the country at large.

“President Conde left all his schedules in his country to celebrate Eid-el-Kabir with his counterpart, President Buhari in Daura. This is a great honour to us, we also decided to reciprocate the honour by giving you a traditional title.

“I confer on you the title of Talban-Daura for accompanying our son, President Buhari to observe Eid-el-Kabir celebration in the ancient city of Daura.

“Talban-Daura is a title given to a great person like President Conde, we indeed thank you for the visit,” he said.
