Sulu-Gambari, who is also the Chairman, Kwara State Traditional Council, decorated Saraki with the regalia of his new title and ordered him to wear it throughout the day.

He said, “We are excited by your political exploits because, of late, you have become the beautiful bride whom politicians across the board are beckoning to be in their camps. This is a show of recognition of your worth and achievements as a politician. We are very proud of you.”
