The 67-year-old Adamawa-born politician was recently made the Aare of Ire Ekiti in Ekiti State.

Last month, Atiku commissioned a new 300-bed hospital in Ado Ekiti and has since developed a good relationship with the Ekiti people as 2015 Presidential election draws near.

He is set to run for Presidential election under APC.

This Chieftancy title of a thing has become very cheap nowadays, imagine Atiku as the Aare of a town in Ekiti State.

“Aare” title is the highest of crowns which ONLY descendants of Oduduwa (YorubaLand) can wear.
