There are indications that a former vice president of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, will be named the new Waziri of Adamawa by the Adamawa Emirate Council barring any last minute changes.
Mr. Abubakar’s choice for the exalted traditional position was considered by the council at its meeting on Thursday. The former vice president, who currently holds the title ‘Turakin Adamawa’ will succeed Abba Mohammed, who died recently.
The council members have also pencilled Mr. Abubakar’s son, Aliyu, as the next Turakin in succession to his father. Waziri is one of the most important titles in the Adamawa Emirate. Crdt: PremiumTimes
