I called for restraint and truce in the ongoing saga between the Government of Kogi State and HRM, Dr Ado Ibrahim, the Ohinoyi of Ebiraland.
I appeal to the Governor, HE Alh Yahaya Bello who is the head of Government, to exhibit highest level of tolerance in this matter, he should remember that we’re trained to accept whatever our father or mother (parents) does to us as children, and that, the Ohinoyi being a father to all of us including the Governor himself, I appeal that he withhold further actions on this, more importantly if the monarch has respectfully responded to the query from the ministry in charge of Chieftaincy Affairs!
A father will not shoot his children with a loaded gun, neither is a son expected to fire his father to death please.
Let us light a candle instead of hissing in the dark, and maintain absolute peace as we head into elections and possible transition of governance.
Rt Hon Abdullahi Bello
Former Acting Governor and Speaker,
