“The YAMDU as a royal family condemn in strong terms the conducts of these members and hereby wish to state clearly that we disassociate YAMDU and the entire Ejeh Royal Family as anon-partisan entity from such declarations or support. The said speeches and declarations of support are solely the personal opinions of those members and NOT on behalf of YAMDU or Ejeh Royal Family of Ankpa in Kogi state.

“However, individual members of the Association have the civic right to be involved in politics as well as supporting any preferred political party of their choice on individual basis and NOT YAMDU as an incorporated trustee under the Corporate Affairs Commission in Nigeria.

“As a Royal Family committed to the growth and development of Ankpa, we consider all sons and daughters of Ankpa and its environs vying for political post in various parties as worthy ambassadors of the land and we constantly pray and wish them the best in their endeavours.
