Wada urges traditional rulers to be agents of peace
Traditional rulers in Kogi State have been urged not to abdicate their role as agents of peace and stability in their communities. Governor Idris Wada gave the charge at the weekend during the burial of late Elegbe of Egbe, Oba Stanley Kayode Owa, in Yagbawest Local Government Area. According to him, one of the key functions of the traditional institution is for the royal fathers to constantly sensitize their subjects on the need to rise against communal strife. Wada, who was represented by the state’s Head of Service, Dr Moses Atakpa, said the security situation in the country demands that traditional rulers intensify efforts in ensuring that their subjects live in peace.
