Jebba, Shao Must be under me, Don’t try to Grade them – Emir of Ilorin Warns Kwara Gov’t.
Ilorin Emirate Council has cautioned the Kwara State authorities towards acceding to the request for the elevation of the traditional chiefs of Jebba and Shao in Moro Local Government Area of the state.
The council in a declaration issued the day prior to this with the aid of the Magaji Nda of Ilorin, Alhaji Salihu Mohammed Woru, reminded authorities of the truth that all typical chiefs in the 5 LGAs of Ilorin West, Ilorin East, Ilorin South, Asa and Moro that made up Ilorin Emirate are lesser chiefs below the Emir of Ilorin.
“Unless the Nigeria’s 1999 Constitution is amended, all 774 local governments together with Moro localgovernment shall proceed to remain where they are in spite of their political, religious and tribal differences.
“I therefore, appeal to the agitators from Moro and their cohorts, especially students, to center of attention greater on their academic hobbies being potential leaders of tomorrow,” he said.
