Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello has received a delegation from the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar which was in a visit to offer condolences over the passing of the Ohinoyi of Ebiraland, His Royal Majesty, Ado Ibrahim.

The delegation was led by the Etsu Nupe, His Royal Majesty, Abubakar Yahaya, who delivered a letter of condolence to the governor. He commiserated with him, the government, and the good people of Kogi State on the passing of Ibrahim.

Governor Bello expressed gratitude to the delegation for sympathising with the people of Ebiraland and the government of Kogi State, as well as for taking the time to pay a condolence visit.

He eulogised the late Ohinoyi for his impactful and exemplary life, stating, “I want to sincerely thank you for finding it worthy to commiserate with us and also finding time to pay a condolence visit.

Late Ado Ibrahim, the Ohinoyi of Ebiraland, Sa’aki, lived well and made a huge impact on the lives of his people during his time. While he was alive, we had a father-and-son relationship because we come from the same lineage.


“Our late royal father’s mother and my grandfather were of the same parents, so the demise of His Royal Majesty is a personal loss to me.”


Bello also reiterated his administration’s commitment to prioritising the welfare of traditional rulers in the state, a policy he assured would be continued by his successor.

He emphasised the harmonious coexistence and collaboration between the government and traditional rulers in Kogi State for the greater good of the people.

On behalf of the delegation, the Etsu Nupe conveyed the condolences of the Sultan and the entire Northern traditional council chiefs to the governor, offering prayers for the peaceful repose of late Ohinoyi’s soul.


He commended Governor Bello for establishing and maintaining a strong relationship with traditional rulers and particularly highlighted the priority the governor placed on the welfare of traditional rulers in Kogi State.
