Alhaji Yunusa, who gave the charge while turbaning Abubakar Jiya at his palace as the new Etsu of Rimba community, said he will not hesitate to summon the traditional ruler if ever there is a clash or misunderstanding between farmers and Fulani cattle rearers in the community.
He advised the monarch to ensure that his subjects, especially the youth, acquire both western and Islamic education so that they can favourably compete with others in the society.
The monarch also urged the traditional ruler to always run a policy where his subjects will be free to present useful advice that will enhance peace, progress and development of the community.
“And I want to make it categorically clear to you that this palace will not condone any kind of indiscipline from anybody in such a position and anytime we receive report that you molest or slap any of your subjects, we will not hesitate to dethrone you,’’ he warned.
Also speaking, the secretary Local Education Authority (LEA) of the council, Alhaji Hassan Suleiman, commended the kingmakers of the community for unanimously selecting one of their sons as their village head.
He described the newly installed EtsuRimba, AlhajiAbubakarJiya, as a humble and hardworking person that has worked under him for over 10 years and expressed optimism that the new monarch will rule his people fairly.
