The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, the Oni of Ife, His Imperial Majesty, Oba Adeyeye Emiton Ogunwusi Ojaja II, Obi of Onitsha, His Royal Majesty Prof. Alfred Achebe, Obong of Calabar, His Eminence Ediden Ekpo Okon Abasi, Etsu of Nupe, HRH Alhaji Yahaya Abubakar, and other eminent traditional rulers across the country, met in Owerri, the Imo State capital, where they x-rayed the peace process after the 2019 general elections.
The post mortem on the elections was on the platform of the National Council of Traditional Rulers of Nigeria (NCTRN).
On arrival, the traditional rulers paid a courtesy visit on Gov. Rochas Okorocha. Speaking while receiving them, Okorocha said he was one of the most misinterpreted leaders in the country because of his firm belief in the unity of Nigeria.
The governor explained that he had always believed in the unity and indivisibility of Nigeria, especially when he recalled that he was born Igbo, brought up by the North and empowered by the West, adding that he had every reason to believe in the country and its unity.
The Oni of Ife, who spoke on behalf of the traditional rulers, said: “What we are known for is to foster unity and peaceful co-existence across the entire country.”
