A pan Igala group, Igala Vanguard, has called on the paramount traditional ruler in Igalaland, Attah Idakwo Ameh Oboni II to do assist Kogi state government in the selection of the new Ejeh of Ankpa.

The group made the call in a press statement signed by the convener, Engineer Lawrence Akpa.

He pleaded with Attah Igala to help educate government on the process of selection and ascension to the stool of Ejeh of Ankpa kingdom stressing that the traditional obligations is the core of the provision for selection rather than dragging the revered stool into politically inclined decisions.

The group emphasized the need to uphold the succession tradition based on the only ruling house rather than considering undue influence that will demean the status, prestige and respect the stool of Ejeh of Ankpa had always commanded.
“To avoid mistakes of the past where the stool was weakened by the spread of the name and acronym “Ejeh” to some part of Igala land to achieve cheap political scores, we urge the Attah Igala to strive, within its traditional provisions, and see the need for the government to insulate traditional institutions from political influence whether directly or indirectly”, he said.
