Nigerians share mixed feelings

Not many were pleased with the news of Yusuf being conferred with a traditional title. While some dropped congratulatory messages, others criticised the government, adding that Yusf does not deserve the title.

Abubakar Balarabe commented:

"Masha Allah. Barkan mu da Sallah

"More grease to your elbow, continue the good work, history is being written in gold by our able President. continue helping him and don't worry about the detractors!"

Fabian Ogbodo stated:

"Aside from being first son, what has he done to merit that title ? How many Daura boys and girls did he keep away from the reach of banditry?"

Abdulazeez Ochende added:

"My question is; what has Yusuf done to affect the lives of his people positively to deserve such title?
"I think that the traditional institution is being ridiculed. Congratulations to them, though!"
