“If a child is very close to the king and does all his biddings, he will be bestowed the title sarkin turaka which is Santuraki in abbreviation.

“Thank God the name santuraki came to Bauchi and I was chosen as one which I inherited from my late father,” he explained.

“We believe that the new title holder is equal to the task because he is such a person that is obedient.

“I want to believe that this Emirate has done the real thing they are supposed to do by fishing out somebody that is dedicated, honest, sincere and hard working.

“I will advise him to be patient and tolerant as a position of power like this comes with a lot of observation, patience and he must remain focused on what brought him here

The colourful ceremony was graced by a number of the emirate council members, relatives, friends, supporters and well-wishers who prayed for the guidance and blessings of the emir to the new Santuraki Bauchi.
