PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with the family, friends and associates of His Royal Majesty, Attah Igala, Michael Idakwo Ameh Oboni II, over the transition of the Paramount Ruler of Igala Kingdom and President, Kogi State Council of Chiefs.
The President also condoled with the Kogi State Government, describing the late royal father as a “man of peace who devoted his life and reign to the unity and progress of not only his people, but also the state and country.”
In a statement issued by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba, President Buhari noted that the 27th Attah Igala will be greatly missed for his wise counsels and reputation for honesty, urging the people of his domain to sustain his achievements during his eight-year rule.
He prayed that God will console the family of the revered foremost traditional ruler and all those who mourn him, and grant his soul eternal rest.
