There is a common belief that people from the south eastern part of Nigeria love titles. 

Ask any Igbo man or woman you know how true this is. 

If you even visit as a friend and they like you a lot, they may even give you one of those tittles. 

Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, is in Imo State and he has received a rousing welcome with a title attached to his name already. 

In the east, there are a few things you could look at to identify these 'Ndi Chi Echi-chi' [titled men] as they are popularly referred to in some clans.

After the Senate President arrived Imo, he was offered a hand fan with the title; 'Senator Bukola Saraki, Eyioma Ikeduru', written on it. 

It is one of the political tours he has embarked on since he declared his interest to run for the position of  president in the 2019 general election.

During his tour in the state ruled by a member of his former political party - the All Progressives Congress (APC), he will meet with members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) later in the day.

"I just arrived in Imo State!

"Later today, I will be speaking with PDP delegates and party executives about my vision to grow Nigeria by creating more jobs and opportunities for all.

"Working together, I know that we can move our nation forward," he wrote on his Facebook page where he shared the images. 

Senator Dino Melaye, who is the Chairman of the Senate Committee on the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) where reports of earth tremors emerged in the early hours of Friday, September 6th, was seen in the picture with him. 

He had said his committee was monitoring the situation.
