“I commend His Royal Highness, Emir of Daura, Alhaji (Dr) Umar Farouk Umar, CON for choosing an excellent man for this important title.
“I have always known that Sunday is headed for the very top. When he worked with me as my Special Adviser/Chief of Staff, he shone brilliantly. He distinguished himself in character, leadership skills and organizational abilities.
“I have no doubt in my mind that he would be a worthy ambassador for Daura Emirate, just as he is to his Ogbomoso-hometown where he holds the chieftaincy title of Agbaakin, to the Yoruba race and indeed to our progressive family.”
