Wukari (Taraba), March 17, 2017 (TNE): President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday called on traditional rulers to strip corrupt politicians of their chieftaincy titles, as a way of forming a strong vanguard in support of his fight against corruption.
Buhari made the call at the celebration of the Aku Uka of Wukari Dr. Shekarau Angyu’s 40th anniversary as the Jukun paramount ruler in Wukari, Taraba.
Represented by the Minister of Youth and Sports, Mr Solomon Dalong, the President urged the traditional rulers to also strip others found to be undeserving of hallowed titles.
Buhari, who thanked Nigerians for their prayers for his successful return, pledged to serve the country with renewed vigour to meet the yearnings and aspirations of citizens.
While congratulating the Aku Uka for attaining 40 years on the throne and for his exemplary leadership style since 1976 when he was installed, Buhari prayed God to grant him more years to serve the people.
Gov. Darius Ishaku of Taraba commended the paramount ruler, the 13th Aku Uka, for uniting the people of the kingdom.
Ishaku called on the people of the state to continue to support the royal father to enable him to bring more development to his subjects. (TNE)
