@Seizan,
I'm going with 'to'. Not quite sure why, though.

You confer something on or upon, not to.

That’s the correct English, but it’s an odd construction.

@Lady Lingiton,
Thanks, but I think Deb got me by pointing out the word 'confer'

@Borat Sister,

@Seizan,
I would get rid of confers.

His longtime direct association with the man lends/gives veracity to his narrative.
