The Kogi state government says it will build a new palace in Kabba, an ancient town in the state.

Salami Ozigi, commissioner for local government and chieftaincy affairs, said this when he paid a visit to Solomon Owoniyi, the obaro of Kabba, at his palace.

Ozigi said the traditional stool is held in high esteem by the state government.

He said Yahaya Bello, governor of the state, has indicated interest in actualising the project in the face of limited resources.

In his response, Owoniyi thanked the governor for making efforts to “correct past injustices in the appointments of traditional rulers in Okun land”.

The monarch assured the government of the people’s support, and he also appealed for the upgrade of deserving traditional stools and the filling in of vacant ones in the area.

The commissioner also visited the palace of the maigari of Lokoja, where he commended the royal father, Muhammad Maikarfi III, for maintaining peace in his domain.

He asked the monarch to synergise with his ministry to consolidate on the existing peace for steady progress in the state.

The commissioner also paid a similar visit to the ohimege-igu of Kotokarfe, Abdulrazaq Isah Koto, where he lauded the hospitality of the people, saying it is worthy of emulation.
