Governor Aminu Bello Masari has commended the exemplary leadership qualities of the Emir of Daura, Alhaji Farouk Umar, describing him as “a role model” for the nation’s young leaders.
Masari gave the commendation in Daura, when he inaugurated two palace chambers renovated by the Emir from his personal resources.
Leadership reports that, the governor particularly commended Umar’s loyalty, simplicity, hospitality, resourcefulness and peaceful disposition in the discharge of his official conduct, and urged others in leadership positions to emulate such attributes.
Masari expressed surprise that the emir had conducted his affairs “without being beggarly”, and assured him of the state government’s readiness to support efforts that would attract respect and recognition to traditional institutions.
Earlier, the Emir had said that he renovated the palace with his little resources to give the palace “a befitting status, considering that Daura is the home of President Muhammadu Buhari”.
He promised that his council would continue to support government policies and programmes to ensure success.
The governor was accompanied on the visit by the Secretary to the Government of the state, Dr. Mustapha Inuwa, as well as top government officials and politicians.
