Wada urges tra­di­tional rulers to be agents of peace

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Us­man A. Bello, Lokoja

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.
