Orji Kalu Congratulates Transportation Minister, Amaechi On Daura's Title
Rt. Hon. Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi

The Chief Whip of the Senate and former Governor of Abia State, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has congratulated the Transportation Minister, Rotimi Chibuike Amaechi on his turbaning as the “Dan Amana Daura” (the trusted son of Daura) by the Daura Emirate Council.

Writing on his Facebook page, Kalu said:

“Congratulations to my brother and friend, Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi on his turbaning as Dan Amanar Daura. This conferment places him on a premium and pedestal and I pray the Good Lord to continue to strengthen him as always.”

While performing the ceremony at the Royal Palace in Daura on Saturday, the Emir of Daura, Alhaji Umar Faruq said the title bestowed on Amaechi was purely based on merit and his services to the Daura Emirate and Nigeria.

According to the Emir, “Daura Emirate does not confer titles on people because of money. The Emirate considers the services rendered to humanity by whoever he wants to honour.”

It should be recalled that Amaechi embarked on the Kano – Daura – Katsina rail line project and the Federal University of Transportation in Daura, Katsina State.

The Governor of Katsina State, Aminu Bello Masari, the Oni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, former Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Tukur Buratai and a host of other dignitaries witnessed the ceremony.
