Bola Tinubu, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has been lavished with compliments after a photo of him wearing an attire bearing the word ‘Jagaban’, surfaced on social media.


In the photo shared on Twitter by Ademola Olaniran, a photographer, the former governor of Lagos state is seen rocking a blue outfit with ‘Jagaban’ inscribed on the back and a cap to match.

‘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:
