Mohammed Made this known when Gov. Mohammed Abubakar, paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja on Wednesday.

He noted that Durbar was unique not only for its pageantry and colours but for its exclusivity to Nigeria.

The minister said he was already talking to United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) for a global recognition of durbar.

He recalled that he attended a book launch on durbar recently in Paris where the festival was celebrated and rated high.
