On Wednesday, Governor Umar Namadi of Jigawa State played host to a distinguished dinner in tribute to Nasiru Danu, recently bestowed with the revered title of Sardaunan of Dutse. The grand event took place at the Banquet Hall of the Government House in Dutse, the capital city of Jigawa State.

The dinner was one of the highlights in a series of celebrations marking the esteemed title conferred upon Mr. Danu. He also holds a prominent position within the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and is recognized for his philanthropic endeavors.

Emir Muhammad Hamim-Sanusi of Dutse, in recognition of Mr. Danu’s contributions, bestowed upon him the prestigious title, solidifying his status as a noteworthy philanthropist within the community.

The gathering witnessed the presence of distinguished personalities from across Nigeria, including former Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, former Chief of Naval Staff, Zubairu Gambo, and former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Ibrahim Magu. Also gracing the occasion were former presidential media aide, Garba Shehu, former Minister of Aviation, Hadi Sirika, Senator Halliru Jika representing Bauchi North District, Jigawa State Assembly Speaker Haruna Aliyu, APC stalwart Farouk Aliyu, alongside other eminent political figures.

The Dutse Emirate Council had earlier announced that Mr. Danu, who succeeded the late Maitama Bello, former Nigeria’s Minister of Commerce, would be conferred the title of Sardaunan Gombe. The formal investiture ceremony is scheduled for Friday at the Emir’s palace in Garu, Dutse, with former President Muhammadu Buhari as the Special Guest of Honour and Governor Namadi as the Guest of Honour.

Before attaining the esteemed title of Sardauna and Kingmaker of Dutse Emirate, Mr. Danu was honored with the title of ‘Dan Amanar Dutse’ by the late Emir, Nuhu Muhammad-Sanusi, on May 4, 2017.

Nasiru Danu, a renowned Nigerian businessman and influential political figure, epitomizes leadership and philanthropy. His journey into politics commenced in 2002 when he aligned himself with Mr. Buhari’s political aspirations. He advocated for transformative initiatives, particularly in education, aimed at empowering Nigerian youth and communities.
