Like Shema -the Atah-Oja Igala of Kogi, Masari too gets Shettima Alamma of Potiskum
Katsina State Governor, Rt. Hon. Aminu Bello Masari has been bestowed with the traditional title of Shettima Alamma by Mai Potiskum, Alhaji Umaru Bubaram Ibn Wuriwe Dawuya.
The Mai Potiskum announced the traditional title when he received the Governor who paid him homage at his palace in potiskum.
Alhaji Umaru Bubaram told Governor Masari that the traditional title of Shettima Alamma was only bestowed on trustworthy and honest people.
He said Governor Masari had demonstrated honesty and trustworthiness when he was serving as the speaker of house of representatives.
The Mai potiskum expressed optimism that the future would be bright for Aminu Bello Masari after his tenure as a Governor.
Responding, Governor Aminu Bello Masari expressed gratitude to the Mai potiskum for not only the traditional title but the warm reception accorded accorded to him.
The speaker of katsina state house of assembly, Alhaji Aliyu Sabi’u Muduru who accompanied the Governor expressed appreciation to the Mai of potiskum for honouring not only the Governor but the people of katsina state.
The governor was in potiskum for the wedding fatiha of the daughter of his close associate.
It could be recalled that Ibrahim Shema too was given a traditional title of Atah-Oja Igala of Kogi sometimes back when he was the Katsina State’s Governor.
Responding on why Shema was confined with the title, the chairman of Kogi traditional rulers council, Dr. Muhammad Yakubu, saying it is all about good governance.
Dakiyi said unlike some state governors, Governor Shema serves the entire people of Katsina State irrespective of religious and tribal differences.
