Governor Abdullahi Sule

The Eggon Cultural and Development Association (ECDA) worldwide has urged Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa state to commence the selection process of new Aren Eggon of Eggon nation to fill the vacant position created as a result of the demise of Dr. Bala Abaine Angbazo.

ECDA president, Mr. Mandy David Abuluya, gave the advise in a statement he signed and made available to newsmen weekend, in Nassarawa Eggon local government area of the state.

He urged the governor not to allow external interference in the selection of new Aren Eggon of Eggon nation in the interest of peace and development.

He believed that if a new Aren Eggon is selected as the tradition permits, it will not only promote unity and peace in Eggon nation but in the state at large as it is purely an Eggon affair.

Abuluya also appealed to Governor Sule not to appoint an acting Aren Eggon but commence the selection process within three months in order to give Eggon nation a sense of belonging in the Nasarawa state council of chief’s meetings and other public engagements involving first class traditional rulers.

“We also wish to appreciate the attention given to the traditional institution in the state by the present administration under the leadership of Governor Abdullahi Sule towards promoting peace among the diverse ethnic groups in the state,” he stated.
