According to Chooks Oko, an aide to the Ebonyi State governor, David Umahi, Tinubu was given the title of ‘Dike Di Ora Nma’ which means ‘Hero that is loved by the people.’
The conferment took place during a town hall meeting on Wednesday in the state.
An APC supporter, DOlusegun, had also tweeted a picture of the APC presidential candidate clad in a full Igbo-regalia and flanked by some women presenting a wrapped gift item, with the caption.
He wrote, “Asiwaju bags Chieftaincy Title In Ebonyi State. He Is Now The DIKE DI ORA NMA 1 Of Ebonyi State.”
Ex-presidential aspirant of the Young Progressives Party, Adamu Garba, who has rejoined the All Progressives Congress (APC), also took to twitter to celebrate Tinubu.
Mr Garba, who is a social media influencer, in a tweet on Thursday, wrote, “Alhaji Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the real next Mazi Gburugburu who has clearly taken on the legacies of Chief Chukwuemeka Odumegu Ojukwu. The Southeast is also sealed.”
