Culture & TraditionLifestyleNewsSultan Turbans More Than 20 Persons With Traditional Titles Of Sokoto Caliphate

No fewer than 20 dignitaries, including three sons of the 18th Sultan of Sokoto, late Ibrahim Dasuki were on Sunday turbaned with traditional titles of the caliphate by the Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III.

The event was a unique one, making it the first of its kind in the history of the caliphate.

Addressing the gathering, the Sultan said that the event was historic as it retraced the footprints of the late Othman Dan Fodiyo’s purposeful legacies.

Abubakar charged the new titleholders to remain committed to the course of strengthening the administrative roles and responsibilities of the caliphate, to humanity.

 “Your turbanning is a great honor and opportunity to serve the society and the entire Sokoto caliphate. Because of this, I expect all of you to shoulder the responsibilities with dedication and commitment.

“It is our humble belief that you would assist in achieving a favourable and rewarding Ramadan, in peace and for the benefit of Muslims, while keeping people closer to the caliphate.

“Moreover, people should continue to pray for the turbaned, to enable them to deliver the responsibilities shouldered on all of them,“ he said.

Abubakar then called on Nigerians to sustain their prayers for the leaders, to enable them to address all the security challenges bedeviling some parts of the country.

Among the 20 persons turbaned include Sokoto State Commissioner of Finance, Abdussamad Dasuki turbanned as Santuraki of Sokoto, Abubakar Dasuki as Danmaje and Alhaji Khadir Dasuki as Durbi.

Other are, Chairman, Sokoto State Pilgrims Welfare Agency, Alhaji Muhtari Maigona, as Zanna, former Governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Ibrahim Idris, as Jekada, former Minister of Transportation, Alhaji Yusuf Suleiman, as Dan’amar, Prof. Ahmad Mora, as Kayayen Sarkin Musulmi, Alhaji Musa Bashar, as Mayana.
