Etsako West Boss Turbaned Dania of Auchi

Among the activities that added colour to the just concluded Eid de Fitr celebration in Auchi Kingdom was the turbaning of  Prince Hassan Kadiri, the Chairman of Etsako west Local government area, as the Dania of Auchi Kingdom by His Royal Highness, Alhaji H.A Momoh, the Otaru of Auchi Kingdom.

The ceremony took place on the second day of the Eid celebration (Monday, 28th of July 2014) at the palace of the Otaru of Auchi.

The new Dania who was full of joy, thanked God for elevating him to the highly revered position of the Dania of Auchi Kingdom and pledge to justify the confidence reposed in him.

The revered title of Dania in Auchi Kingdom is next in hierarchy to the Daudus. However, the bearer of this title is dearest and nearest to the Otaru. The Dania is thus an office reserved for the Otaru’s confidant, who has the intelligence, the wit and the guts to dispense justice without fear or favour.

Prince Hassan Kadiri is from the Kadiri wing of the Ikelebe dynasty while the immediate past Dania, late Prince A.B.C Momoh was from the Momoh wing of the Ikelebe dynasty,
