Photos: Fashanu & New Wife Conferred With Chieftaincy Titles

Amb. John Fashanu and Amb. Rachel Bakam are soaring hand in hand. The two are doing so well together and are still as tight as Siamese twins. They rock and work together, their rep said.

Recently, even though absent, they were conferred with Chieftancy titles at the Ofala festival from the Eze Okwe Kingdom and the Enugu State Government.  This is geared towards bridging differences in Communities, celebrating selfless service to human development and for being friends of the community.

Amb. Chief John Fashanu is now Ofia-Afulu-Agu of Okwe Kingdom (meaning: The forest that contains the Lion) and Amb. Chief Rachel Bakam is now Ugo-Di-Namba  of Okwe Kingdom (meaning Beautiful Eagle Queen from another Kingdom).

Quoting Chief Rachel's words; "At first we were skeptical due to spiritual conotations but we discovered that this traditional community brings together Christians, Moslems and various tribes under one umbrella for the purpose of unity without any fetish acts. Thanks to HRH Crown Mayor of Nike - Igwe (Dr) Emmanuel O. Ugwu - Anyanwu  N'awalu Oha 1 of Ibagwa Nike Enugu for this unique unifying vision. We will visit the Community soon and will be adorned with our Chieftancy regalia.  We will also release pictures soon". 

Not too long before this, the duo were each honoured with the prestigious Sir Tafawa Balewa Leadership Award in Kaduna. More photos below.
