14 Abia monarchs receive staff of office
By Boniface Okoro, Umuahia on 29/09/2016
Fourteen traditional rulers in Abia State were today presented with the staff of office. The presentation was done by Governor Okezie Ikpeazu.
The new monarchs were selected mainly from autonomous communities whose traditional rulers have passed away.
Addressing the traditional rulers after presenting them with their staff of office, the Governor charged them to rule with the fear of God and to allow peace to reign in their communities.
He cautioned them against using their position to witch-hunt perceived opponents or foment trouble in their domains, adding that they should collaborate with government to ensure that its policies and programmes are actualised, rather than sabotage them.
In his remarks, the State Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Chief Charles Ogbonnaya, said the traditional rulers were duly selected and verified in line with law and would replace those deceased while two were for newly created autonomous communities.
He urged them to maintain peace in their areas and to work hand-in-hand with the government.
In a vote of thanks, Eze Innocent Nwaigwe of Okaiuga Alike thanked Governor Ikpeazu and pledged that they will support his people-oriented policies.
