PRESIDENT BUHARI CONGRATULATES NEW EMIR OF KATAGUM; URGES HIM TO ENSURE PEACE

President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the new Emir of Katagum, Alhaji Baba Umar Farouq, who succeeded his father and late emir, Alhaji Kabir Umar.

The President, while commending the Katagum Emirate Council and the Bauchi State Government for the peaceful transition of power, said the new emir is a worthy successor to his late father.

He enjoined the 12th Emir of Katagum to use his experience as a retired federal permanent secretary to build on the enduring and inspiring legacies of his predecessor by ensuring peace and development of the emirate in particular, and the state in general.

According to President Buhari, “Traditional rulers are important in promoting and sustaining peace and development in our rural and urban communities.”
