Bauchi State Governor, Senator Bala Mohammed, has reiterated his administration’s commitment to continue prioritise and preserve the traditional values across the state.

The governor stated this at the weekend  at the Palace of the Emir of Bauchi, Dr. Rilwanu Suleiman Adamu, during the turbaning ceremony of 10 people by the Emirate.

According to him, “In my administration, we prioritise the preserving of our traditional values, a stance heavily supported by our esteemed traditional and religious leaders. This foundational support has been instrumental in our successes.”

Governor Mohammed added: “We recognise the critical importance of bolstering our cultural heritage to enhance tourism. This was a focus during the recent turbaning ceremony at the Bauchi Emir’s palace, where we honoured distinguished individuals such as Governor Umar Mohammed Bago of Niger State and others with traditional titles.

“I congratulate the new title holders, and urge them to serve as noble ambassadors of our emirate and state.” 

“They have my full support in this endeavour.

“Additionally, I commend the sportsmanlike conduct of my predecessors and reiterate my commitment to inclusive governance through initiatives like #BauchiUrbanRenewal and #MyNewBauchiProject, aimed at transformative urban and regional development. #GreaterBauchi.”

Mohammed appreciated the Emir for choosing the traditional title holders and requested the people of Bauchi State to continue to support the developmental strides of his administration.

The governor also used the ceremony to charge traditional rulers and title holders to always live up to the expectations of their titles and offices as the case may be.

Mohammed said that he would continue to carry everybody along in the scheme of things in order to achieve the set objectives of his administration of making Bauchi State better than what he met in 2019.

Meanwhile, the Niger State Governor, Umar Bago, who bagged the traditional title of Shaban Bauchi, charged the traditional title holders to live up to expectations for sustainable growth and development.

He appreciated the Emir for the honour, and stressed that the good working relationship between Bauchi and Niger States would continue for the good of all.
