Vice President Kashim Shettima and the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, have bagged chieftaincy titles in Anambra State.
The titles were conferred on the duo by the Igwe of Ukpo Dumukofi, His Majesty Dr. Robert C. Eze (Okofi VI) during the 32nd Ofala festival of Ukpo Dumukofia on Saturday.
The Ofala festival was organised and sponsored by Prince Arthur Eze, the billionaire oil magnate.
According to the monarch, the chieftaincy title was conferred on Ganduje because he was one of the leading detribalized politicians in Nigeria.
He recounted how the APC chairman protected the Ndigbo while he was governor of Kano State.
Prominent Nigerians attended the ofala festival, including governor of Imo state, Hope Uzodinma and deputy speaker House of Representatives, Benjamin Kalu.
Also in attendance was the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun.
