‘Jagaban’ is a title conferred on the politician by Halliru Dantoro, the late emir of Borgu and one of the titans of the “second republic” politics.
According to Dantoro, the title means “leader of warriors”.
The title was also birthed from the phrase “Ja a gabar Borgu”, which means a leader of Borgu city, and was given to the politician for his “unconditional service and time-tested leadership.”
The photo has since begun to gain some accolades among Tinubu’s fans and supporters on Twitter.
“See the trademark. Asiwaju Tinubu should launch a traditional clothing line “Jagaban” already,” a Twitter user said.
Here is what some Nigerians had to say:
