The Kogi State Government has issued a query to the paramount traditional ruler and Ohinoyi of Ebiraland, Ado Ibrahim, for refusing to welcome President Muhammadu Buhari to the state.
The President was in Kogi on December 29, 2022 to inaugurate some projects including the palace of the Ohinoyi built by Governor Yahaya Bello but the monarch who doubles as Vice President of Kogi State Council of Chiefs was absent.
A letter signed by Director of Chieftaincy Affairs, Enimola Eniola, accused the monarch of exhibiting deliberate attitude and actions capable of bringing Kogi State and Ebiraland in particular to grave disrepute.
According to the letter, he refused to come out and receive the President at the designated venue rightly approved by Governor Bello.
The monarch was given 48 hours to respond to the query or face disciplinary action.
