Monarch cautions Kogi justice ministry against meddlesomeness

JusticeTHE Attah Igala Alhaji Idakwo Ameoboni II has taken an exception to the attempt by the Kogi State Ministry of Justice to intervene in matters that the monarch tagged as purely outside its purview.

The Attah was reacting to series of publications in a Kogi State Government-owned newspaper, where it was alleged that the State Justice ministry advised against the enforcement of an alleged removal of the title of Ogohi-Attah Ejule.

“Alhaji Akwu Achimugu stands debeaded as Ogohi-Attah Ejule,” the statement reiterated.

The monarch stated that though it is unethical to join issues with government official on the pages of newspapers however, he was compelled to respond since it may become difficult to change a lie that has become constant.

“The conferment and removal of the title of Ogohi-Attah Igala Ejule on any worthy son of the land squarely on the prerogatives of the Attah and not on the Ejeh Ofu sitting in council.”

Meanwhile, a pressure group in the All Progressive Congress, (APC) Volunteer Network, (AVN) in Kogi State has called on the delegates of the party to shine their eyes as they prepare to cast their votes during the forthcoming primary election to avoid being cajoled by do or die politicians.

The statement, which was signed by the State coordinator of the group, Mr. Tony Babatunde asked the delegates to vote for Senator Nicholas Yahaya Ugbane in the forthcoming primary election preparatory for the governorship election slated for November this year.

It stated further that if the two-term senator is voted into power he will massively transform the state to an agrarian state harping on the huge agricultural potentials by using over 80 percent of the population in the state.

Also, a governorship aspirant on the platform of the All Progressive Congress Alhaji Yahaya Bello is upbeat having received overwhelming support from delegates and party leaders in Kogi state in his quest to occupy the Lugard House in January, 2016.

Bello yesterday during a meeting with delegates in Okene told journalists that his visit to delegates in three local government areas in Okene, Adavi and Okehi, shows that delegates were in total support of his ambition.
