Hungarian Envoy turbaned, celebrates with Polo tourney
The Commercial attache/First Secretary of the Embassy of Hungary in Nigeria Dr Peter‎ Kondricz was weekend turbaned as the ‘Jekada of Turakin Kebbi’.
The turbaning ceremony which took place at the NSK Farms Limited in Keffi was presided over by Nura Kangiwa, the Turakin Kebbi.
The ceremony was followed by a cultural show and a Polo novelty match in honour of Dr. Kondricz.
The Polo tourney saw two teams namely; Grandfishing and Matam Fada
battle it out for the winners’ trophy.
The Grandfishing team was powered by the formidable quartet of ‎Nura Kangiwa, the patron of NSK Farms, SP Haruna Shagari, Umaru Yusuf and Isa Dogonyaro, the patron of Dogonyaro Farms.
While, the Matam Fada‎ team led by Abdulhamid Auna, boasted of high profile players such as Taman Timothy, Mohammed Ibrahim and Kabir Bage.
However, it was the Grandfishing team which defeated Team Matam Fada 6 – 4 to lift the winners’ trophy at the end of a pulsating encounter.
‎Speaking at the occasion, Kangiwa said that the new Jekada of Turakin Kebbi was appointed based on his sterling qualities, amiable character and integrity.
“Your appointment into the exalted position of Jekada of Turakin Kebbi was guided by our collective and careful judgement of your ability, credibility and capability to provide the required purposeful contribution to the development of our people and society at large,” he said‎.
He noted that the title, ‘Jekada’ meant an envoy or emissary to the Turakin Kebbi, adding that‎ the recipient was a personal friend, confidant and a lover of the people.
‎Responding, Dr Kondricz said he was very honoured by the gesture, adding that the honour was not only for him but for the Hungarian people as well.
“‎My primary mission is to develop the business relationship between my country Hungary and Nigeria.
“I will also do my very best to help my friend, Kangiwa to develop his farm here in Keffi as well as the agriculture of Kebbi state and the Federal Republic of Nigeria”.
Also, Ambassador Lim Juay Jin, the High Commissioner of Malaysia to Nigeria who was a guest at the occasion, said it was an eye-opening event for him, adding that it was a first time experience which he would not forget in a long time.
“I consider this an honour and privilege to be here today because it is not every time that one gets this rare opportunity of coming to the countryside to witness first-hand the culture and traditions of the Nigerian people.
“I think this kind of cultural exchange between countries need to be encouraged ‎as it makes for better understanding, appreciation and tolerance of one another,” he said.
