The Kogi State Government has refused to acknowledge the response of the Ohinoyi of Ebiraland, Dr Ado Ibrahim to the query issued to him on why he failed to welcome President Muhammadu Buhari to Okene on 29th December, 2022.

State Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Salami Momodu premised the rejection on the refusal of the royal father to use the appropriate title of his stool as recognized by the Kogi state chieftaincy law and letter of appointment.

The letter stated that the decision of the monarch to use the title of Atta Ebira and not Ohinoyi of Ebiraland in official communication defied some sections of the Kogi State Chiefs Law, 2006.

Recall that the royal father was not available to welcome the President last December when he visited the state to commission some projects, a decision the Ohinoyi blamed on a bomb blast close to his palace that left four people dead.
