Buratai Bags Chieftaincy Title in Osun

Former Chief of Army staff and Nigeria’s Ambassador to Benin Republic, Tukur Buratai, will be installed as Are Balogun Agba of Owu-Kuta Kingdom in Osun State any time from now. The title was recently conferred on him by the traditional ruler of Owu-Kuta, his Royal Highness, Oba Adekunle Tegbosun III, after consultation with the Olowu-in-Council and the entire royal family.

The title was given, based on a long-standing personal relationship between the traditional ruler and the retired Army general, as well as the fact that Buratai is a “worthy icon who has served the nation meritoriously and displayed an impeccable character and moral values when he was active in service”.


Oba Tegbosun further revealed that his gesture toward the retired military chief is to signify that people appreciate what he did in Nigeria and Osun State at large. It is also intended to encourage him to do more for posterity.

The installation ceremony would take place later in the year. The date has not yet been decided by the traditional ruler.
