The Caretaker Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara, Alhaji Bashir Omolaja Bolarinwa, has described the turbaning of the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, as the Kakaakin Kebbi, as a well deserved honour.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Alhaji Lai Mohammed was turbaned as Kakaakin Kabi by the Emir of Argungu, Alhaji Sumaila Mera.
Bolarinwa, in a congratulatory message on Monday in Ilorin, added that the traditional investiture of the minister was worthy of commendation and celebration.
The statement is signed by the caretaker chairman’s media aide, Mr Ayo Abegunde.
Bolarinwa described the chieftaincy title of Kakaakin Kabi as recognition of Mohammed’s tireless efforts in building the tourism potential of Kebbi State.
According to him, the minister’s support and promotion of the Argungu fishing festival has elevated its status to an international tourist attraction.
“This title bestowed on our leader is therefore a worthy recognition of his contribution to Kebbi and indeed Nigeria. It is well deserved.
“On behalf of our party and elders in Kwara State, I join his family, friends and associates to congratulate him.
“I wish him more garlands as he continues to make sacrifices for our dear nation. Congratulations sir,” Bolarinwa declared. (NAN)
