Igala Youth Vanguard: We Commend Ata For Mega Conferment But We Want ‘Pure Igala’ Occasion, Calls For Different Date For Asuku.
Igala Youth Vanguard ( IYV ) has commended the Ata of Igala Mr Mathew Alhaji Opaluwa for the forthcoming mega conferment honouring some Igalas and non Igalas alike who had distinguished themselves in one way or the other.
In a statement released to press men on Monday 15th November 2022 by the spokesperson of the group, Mr Akpa said, the mega conferment would be unprecedented but however, called on the Ata, to split the occasion in the interest of some concerned Igalas.
Part of his statement reads:
” The idea of the conferment of recognition on some deserving personalities is commendable however, in the interest of the masses, the programme should be split into different dates.
” We feel those in government who are also recipients of the conferment should be given different date other than when others who are not in government will have theirs.
” This is necessary due to the glaring fact how those in government go about to intimidate ordinary Kogites with their security details.
” Pharmacy Asuku, the chief of Staff to Governor Yahaya Bello who is also a recipient of this conferment is equally part of those using government security apparatus to intimidate ordinary Kogites.
” In view of the reason given, we therefore appeal to Ata of Igala and chairman traditional ruling council to split the date of the conferment of recognition as mentioned in the interest of Kogites “.
” Eju Gwa Ata! Gaaba yidu!
Recall, on 17th November 2022 has been announced by Ata of Igala as the date to mark one year anniversary of being in office and also to confer awards on some deserving personalities.
