President Jonathan tasks monarchs

President Goodluck Jonathan and the Kogi State Governor, Capt. Idris Wada (retd.), has urged traditional rulers to show more commitment in tackling the lingering insecurity in some parts of the country.
Jonathan spoke during the official presentation of Staff of Office to new Attah Igala, Micheal Oboni, at Idah of Kogi State on Saturday.
Jonathan, who was represented by the Minister of Interior, Mr. Abbah Moro, said the Federal Government was committed to finding solution to the insecurity.
He urged traditional rulers to ensure peace in their domains.
He, who advised the Attah Igala to use his reign to unite the people of Igala Kingdom, also congratulated him on his successful transition to the throne.
The President called for the support of the Igala Kingdom and described the Igala nation as occupying a vital place in the country.
Wada said he was happy to be part of history as the new Attah assumed the throne of his forefathers after independence and in his time as the governor.
He called on the Attah to resolve the several crises in the Igala chieftaincy institution, noting that the crises were on the increase.
