The Emir of Daura, Farouk Umar, on Saturday turbaned Yusuf Buhari, the only son of President Muhammadu Buhari as Talban Daura and district head of Kwasarawa community.
Mr Umar said at the occasion that Yusuf deserved to be appointed as district head considering the developmental strides brought to the emirate by his father.
He added that in his new role, he would be visiting Daura regularly and be participating in the daily routines of the emirate council, contributing his quota toward its development.
