Traditional ruler pledges to promote cultural heritage, unity of Adamawa
Alhaji Aminu Abdulkadir-Mbamba, the newly appointed Walin Adamawa in the Adamawa Emirate Council, said he would use his new position to promote and defend tradition, values and the cultural heritage of the emirate.
Mbamba made this known while speaking with newsmen in Yola on Monday over his recent elevation by the emirate council from the title of Hurumin Adamawa to the exalted position of Walin Adamawa and a kingmaker in the council.
According to the report, his elevation was sequel to the recent demise of the former Walin Adamawa, the late Secretary General of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), Alhaji Sunusi Barkindo.
He expressed determination and commitment in using his position towards promoting peace, unity and understanding amongst Nigerians, especially those who patronised the emirate council.
He lauded the efforts of His Royal Highness the Lamidon Adamawa, Alhaji Barkindo Mustapha, for his good leadership qualities, especially on his regular wise and elderly counselling on issues affecting the corporate existence of the nation.
Mbamba assured that he would use his wealth of experience to support, promote and champion the good cause of justice, unity and transparent disposition for which the emirate council was known, saying his loyalty to the council was unwavering.
He thanked Lamido for considering him worthy of being elevated to the enviable position and pledged to be a loyal and dedicated council member.
He explained that the emirate council would soon announce the day for his formal coronation to enable him to settle for the business of the newly tasking office.
