President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday congratulated Prof. James Ornguga Ayatse, on his election as Tor Tiv, the paramount ruler of the Tiv people.

Ayatse, a former vice-chancellor of the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, is also the pioneer and immediate past vice-chancellor of the Federal University, Dutsin-Ma, Katsina State.

In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President said Ayatse’s emergence as the paramount ruler of the Tiv people was an affirmation of his strength of character, integrity, and moral authority garnered over the years as a lecturer, erudite scholar and administrator.

While urging all his subjects to rally round the new monarch to make his reign as Tor Tiv a success, the President urged the paramount ruler to use his office as a platform for conflict prevention, peace building and development.

Commending the transparent process that led to the emergence of the royal father after the demise of his predecessor, Alfred Akawe Torkula, Tor Tiv IV, last year, the President offered his best wishes to the new monarch as he prepares to ascend the throne of his ancestors.
