In 2019, Emir of Daura, Umar Farouq conferred the standard title of Talban Daura on former President of Guinea, Alpha Conde.
Mutinous troopers had earlier within the month deposed Condé after hours of heavy gunfire across the presidential palace.
The troopers, led by a 41-year-old colonel, Mamadi Doumbouya mentioned they did so due to the rampant corruption, disregard for human rights and financial mismanagement underneath the ousted President.
Quoting the late Ghanaian ex-president John Rawlings who led a coup twice in Ghana, Doumbouya had mentioned, “If the people are crushed by their elites, it is up to the army to give the people their freedom.
“The duty of a soldier is to save the country. We will no longer entrust politics to one man. We will entrust it to the people.”
Two years again, the ousted President was conferred a conventional title of Talban-Daura.
At the turbaning ceremony in Daura, Farouq had mentioned the choice of the Daura emirate council to honour Condé was needed contemplating his love for Nigeria and President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to the paramount ruler, the council authorized the conferment of the title in recognition of Conde’s monumental contributions which he exemplified vis-à-vis stability and oneness of Nigeria and Guinea.
The monarch had mentioned, “We honoured you today (Sunday) because of your endless support and love for our son, President Muhammadu Buhari, and the country. This traditional title is to further cement your relationship with our son and Nigeria in particular.”
