Aren Eggon: Engineer Sule Appeals For Calm As Government Seeks Replacement For Late Monarch

Nasarawa State Governor, Engineer Abdullahi Sule, has appealed to the Eggon Nation to remain calm as his administration seeks to replace the late Bala Abainei Angbazo, who died recently.

Engineer Sule made the appeal when he hosted the first executive governor of the state and National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu, who was at the Government House, Saturday, to pay the traditional Sallah homage, as well as condole with the Governor, the Eggon Nation and people of the state, on the demise of the Aren Eggon, Bala Abainei Angbazo recently.

According to the Governor, whatever his administration will do regarding the replacement of the late Aren Eggon, will be to best interest of the Eggon Nation and the state as a whole.

Engineer Sule noted that, with the level of peace and stability prevailing in the state, his administration will do everything possible to sustain the peaceful coexistence.

He disclosed that he had cause to appeal for calm among the Eggon Nation, mostly because of the unfolding agitation to replace the late traditional ruler.

“We have visited the palace and I have also pleaded with the people. Because every time you are having such a very important replacement, you will have a lot of interest but at the end of the day, God has already selected who will be the next Aren Eggon.

“And I pleaded with them to wait and listen to government, because whatever the government will do, will be to the best interest of the Eggon Nation and the state as a whole,” he stated.

He emphasized that, as a father of the state, God has bestowed upon him, the responsibility of finding a replacement for the Aren Eggon and the same God will guide him towards ensuring that government brings about the right person that will take over and continue to lead the people and maintain the peace in the state.

“Like you said, our prayer is, may his soul rest in peace and may God almighty guide us in bringing about a replacement for him, whoever will take over from him,” the Governor said.

Earlier, in an opening remarks, the National Chairman of the APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, said he was at the Government House to pay the traditional Sallah homage, as well as condole with the Governor, his administration, the Eggon people and the state, over the demise of the late Aren Eggon, Bala Abainei Angbazo.

Senator Adamu described the late Aren Eggon as one of the greatest traditional rulers in the state.

He recounted that, together with the late Bala Abainei Angbazo, they were matured enough and were practicing politicians, when the latter’s father, Abdullahi Ede, the first Aren Eggon to enjoy the staff of office, passed away.

“With his passing away, we believe we should join you as one of his eminent sons from that particular zone and the state generally, to condole with you, to condole with your government and to condole with the Eggon people under your leadership and to condole with the state generally for the loss of such an eminent traditional ruler in the state.

“We pray and hope that God almighty, will give you the fortitude to bear his loss. And God in His infinite mercy will also guide you that we have a befitting replacement in that zone,” he said.

Senator Adamu was accompanied on the visit by his Chief of Staff, Deputy Chief of Staff, Alhaji Suleiman Wamba, the Madakin Keffi, Sarkin Fadan Keffi and APC senatorial candidate for Nasarawa West, Arc. Shehu Tukur and Ambassador David Gimba, amongst others.
