Coronation: Gov. Yahaya Bello Urges New Attah Igala To Unite Subjects

The Kogi State governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, on Friday charged the new Attah Igala, Mathew Alaji Opaluwa Oguche Akpa, to unite the people of Igala kingdom for socio-economic development of the state and country as a whole.

Bello gave the charge in Idah when he presented the staff of office to the royal father as the 28th Attah Igala.

The new Attah took his oath of office and oath of allegiance at about 1pm in a fanfare ceremony witnessed by thousands of Igala ethnic nationalities and personalities from outside the state.

He said the era of imposition of traditional rulers on the people was over, expressing satisfaction with the mammoth crowd that graced the occasion.

Bello urged him to reach out to those who contested with him and extend his hands of fellowship, even as he warned against the politicisation of the Attah Igala stool.

In his brief remarks, the new Attah Igala, Matthew Opaluwa, promised to use the stool to galvanise the people to engender socioeconomic development in the state and the country in general.
