The Ona of Abaji and chairman of the FCT Council of Chiefs, His Royal Majesty (HRM) Alhaji Adamu Baba Yunusa, has called for unity and tolerance among the Egbira indigenes of the area.

Alhaji Yunusa, while speaking during the Egbira first annual meeting, held at his palace on Monday, said unity among the Egbira indigenes will enhance peace, unity and development in the council.

He said holding such an Egbira annual meeting was not meant to attack each other but on how all the Egbira indigenes of the area will come together to always speak with one voice for their progress.

“It is important that we Egbira come together as one family. And we can achieve this when there is patience and tolerance among ourselves because patience brings about progress,” he said.

He commended the pioneer director of education of the FCDA, late Adamu Shuaibu, for establishing two secondary schools in the area, while calling on parents to ensure they encourage their children to acquire education so that they will also be able to attain director cadre.

“And we as parents, no matter what our children have done to us, we should always pray for them rather than cursing them so that they can become responsible people in society tomorrow,” he added.

The monarch, however, called on Egbira indigenes to engage in business or petty trading so that they become self-reliant, even as he appreciated those that attended the first Egbira annual meeting at his palace.

City & crime reports that the monarch, at the end of the meeting set up a 14-member committee, which had the Sarkin Pada, Alhaji Salihu Kakamba, as chairman to look at how issues that affect the Egbira indigenes of the area will always be deliberated.
