The former Deputy Governor of Kogi State, Elder Simon Achuba has commiserated with the family of late Ohinohi of Ebiraland, His Royal Majesty, Dr Abdulrahman Ado Ibrahim who passed on at the age of 95.
Achuba also extended his condolence to the Ebira Kingdom and Kogi state in general, expressing deep grieve over the demise of the royal father at this time.
He described the late paramount ruler as straightfoward and truthful leader who used his position to serve and unite the people in the kingdom.
The former Deputy Governor, in a statement he personally signed, urged the immediate family of the late monarch, the Ebira people and Kogi State at large to see the death of the traditional ruler as an act of God.
Elder Achuba’s statement reads: “On behalf of my family, I write to commiserate with you over the death of your Son, father and Grandfather, His Royal Majesty, late Dr. Abdulrahman Ado Ibrahim, the Ohinohi of Ebira Land.
“While we feel pained by the death of HRM Dr Abdulrahman Ado Ibrahim, we submit to the will of God Almighty and take solace in the fact that the late paramount ruler lived a life worthy of emulation. He would be remembered for his good deeds on earth.
“Infact, the Ohinohi was known for his truth and straightforwardness as a royal father, and would be missed especially now that the state is translating from one administration to another.
“We urge the royal family to be consoled by the achievements of the royal father while on the throne of his father as the chairman of traditional council in the area.
“No doubt, this is a trying moment for the family but the fact remains that, the traditional leader’s journey on earth was an accomplished one as he passed on at the age of 95.
“We pray for the children to keep the legacies of their father and respect the traditional stool as their father did before he joined his creator.
“As one family bounded in fraternal love, we share in your grief and pray God of all comforts, who comforts us in all our tribulations to grant the immediate family the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
May his gentle soul and the souls of the faithfuls department rest in perfect peace”,.
