Nigeria: Lamido Adamawa Turbans Nyako's Son

Yola — Lamido of Adamawa, Alhaji Barkindo Mustapha, has turbaned Abdul'Aziz Nyako, the eldest son of Governor Murala Nyako as 'Sarkin Matasa'- the leader of youths.

Also turbaned alongside Nyako was his own son, Alhaji Mohammed Barkindo, as Kauran Adamawa.

Speaking on the new title at a ceremony in his palace, Barkindo said the title was given to Nyako based on his contribution to youth mobilization and development in Adamawa State.

Barkindo said following this new traditional title, Nyako was not only expected to continue to mobilize youths in the emirate to realize their potentials for socio-economic development of the emirate but would also serve as security adviser to the emirate.

The royal father also tasked the two title holders to take up the new challenge by living up to expectations.

Responding on behalf of the recipients, the new Sarkin Matasa, Alhaji Abdul'Aziz Nyako thanked the royal father and the traditional council for the opportunity given to them to serve the emirate and vowed to live up to expectation.

He urged for support and prayers from the public for them to succeed in the onerous task of mobilizing the diverse youths in Adamawa for peace, unity and development.
