Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Taiwo Adeniyi

The Arise Igala Lead­er­ship awards 2014 night was re­cently or­ga­nized by the Arise Igala mag­a­zine in Abuja, and for­mer Gover­nor Abubakar Audu of Kogi State was hon­oured with the Igala Man of the Year award.

In his re­mark, the At­tah Igala and chair­man of the oc­ca­sion, Idakwo Ameh Oboni, said the recog­ni­tion should spur and en­cour­age the re­cip­i­ents to be more com­mit­ted to the cause of hu­man­ity.

The nom­i­na­tion for the award was con­ducted on­line and Prince Abubakar Audu, who was over­whelm­ingly voted for to emerge as Igala Man of the year, tasked all po­lit­i­cal of­fice hold­ers in the coun­try to be hon­est and put in their best in the ser­vices to hu­man­ity, so that they would be re­mem­bered and ap­pre­ci­ated by the people af­ter leav­ing the of­fice.

Ac­cord­ing to him, “you can’t work to please ev­ery­body but while at the helms of af­fairs in any God’s given op­por­tu­nity, try as much as pos­si­ble to put in your best for your people to en­able your name be writ­ten in the sand of the time.’’

Audu, a leader of All Pro­gres­sive Congress, APC, also charged the Ata Igala and Pres­i­dent, Kogi State Coun­cil of Chiefs, His Royal Majesty, Michael Idakwo Ameh Oboni to work as­sid­u­ously for unity of Igala people in par­tic­u­larly and the en­tire Kogi State.

He said, be­fore the as­cen­dancy of the para­mount ruler to the throne, the Igala land was in to­tal dark­ness, adding, “Your Majesty, since you as­sumed the po­si­tion of the author­ity as the At­tah Igala, we can now see the ray of light that the Igala King­dom is work­ing again.
