President Muhammadu Buhari has said the chieftaincy title being conferred on Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, is a recognition of his “extraordinary legacy” in the transport sector.

The Daura Emirate Council, where Mr Buhari hails from, will on Saturday bestow the title; “Dan Amana,” (the trusted one) on Mr Amaechi.

The president’s message is contained in a statement issued by one of his media aides, Garba Shehu, on Friday in Abuja.

Mr Buhari described the conferment of the title on Mr Amaechi as a clear commitment to the harmonious relationship between the nation’s diverse cultures.

He commended the Minister “for working with enormous energy to make the CHANGE we promised Nigerians a reality,” noting that “the change we are witnessing in the transport sector is an extraordinary legacy.”

The statement said the President had designated a delegation of three, made up of the Ministers of Water Resources, Sulaiman Adamu, Aviation, Senator Hadi Sirika and the Senior Special Assistant (Media and Publicity) Garba Shehu to represent him at the event.
