NIMASA DG hails El-Rufai on Ijebuland’s chieftaincy title

3 min read

The Director General of the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) Dr. Bashir Jamoh has congratulated the immediate past Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir El-Rufai on his installation as the Gbobaniyi of Ijebuland by the Awujale, his Oba Sikiru Adetona.

Jamoh wrote: “The fact that His Excellency @El-Rufai is the first person outside the South West to be conferred with chieftaincy title by the monarch speaks volume of the person and character of the two-time former Governor of @Kaduna State”.

Having left his footprints in the sands of time in the Federal Capital Territory as Minister, and Kaduna State as Governor, Jamoh said that the people of Ijebuland in particular, and the South West by extension should be assured “that they will benefit from El-Rufai’s wealth of experience in leadership.

“This title also brings to the fore El-Rufai’s detribalised disposition towards everyone and his acceptability across every nook and cranny of the federation.

“Dr. Jamoh once again congratulated El-Rufai and the entire people of Kaduna and @Ogun States”.

Said to be the first Nigerian outside the South West to receive a chieftaincy title from the Awujale of Ijebuland in his nearly 64-year reign, El-Rufai tweeted on his X handle late Friday that he was delighted about the installation.

“I am pleased to announce that on Saturday, the 16th of December 2023, His Royal Majesty Oba Sikiru Kayode Adetona the Paramount Ruler and Awujale of Ijebuland will honour my brother and confidante Otunba Jimi Lawal with two chieftaincy titles for his contributions to the Ijebu Kingdom and Nigeria, along with his wife Maryam Lawal.

“I also am privileged to be the first Nigerian outside of South-West of Nigeria to be conferred with a chieftaincy title by the Awujale in his nearly 64-year reign.

“I am to be recognised as the Gbobaniyi of Ijebuland. I am grateful to Kabiyesi Awujale for the recognition and thank all those who have wished me well for this”.
