Enugu Council of Traditional Rulers warns royal fathers to steer-clear of politics



Enugu State Council of Traditional Rulers has warned royal fathers to steer-clear of partisan politics in the state and remain apolitical.

This is contained in a statement issued and signed by the Chairman of the Council, Igwe Lawrence Agubuzu, to newsmen in Enugu on Tuesday.

The statement reads:“One of the resolutions passed by the General Assembly of Enugu State Recognized Traditional Rulers, at our meeting on Tuesday, 29th March, 2022, was the re-affirmation of our time-honoured position as apolitical royal fathers who are not expected to involve ourselves in partisan politics or to take sides with individual or groups of our subjects in political contestations.

“It is against this backdrop that the State Council of Traditional Rulers views with very grave concern the conduct and activities of some royal fathers, who have failed to adhere to our primary role and responsibility for peace, order, security and welfare of our dear Enugu State.

“It has, therefore, become necessary for the Council to rise to the occasion and ensure that a few Traditional Rulers do not tarnish the image of the entire revered royal fathers of Enugu State.

“Accordingly, the State Council of Traditional Rulers will compile and forward to our State Government, for scrutiny and sanction where appropriate, the names of Traditional Rulers who chose to contravene Section 10 of the Enugu State Traditional Rulers’ Law.”

It added that royal fathers should adhere strictly to the section 10 of traditional rulers’ law.
