Eze Ndigbo Title Banned on Ondo State


The Famous Igbo in diaspora Traditional title known as "Eze Ndigbo" has been banned in all towns and villages in Ondo state by the Traditional Rulers. 

The resolution to ban the title was announced by the Deji of Akure through a statement signed by his chief press secretary, Mr. Michael Adeyeye.

Deji of  Akure  said, “The title of Eze Ndigbo does not exist anywhere in Akure or Ondo state. Therefore, there could not have been any move to install anyone with such title. Hence, it remains a figment of the imagination and mere wishful thinking for anyone who claims such.

“An earlier act of insubordination to the Yoruba monarchy and culture by one Mr. Gregory Iloehika, has been deplored by all and sundry, in all its ramifications, as against the traditional norms and practice of the Yoruba people and this led to his removal and subsequent ban of the title of Eze Ndigbo in Akure Kingdom and the entire Ondo State.”

 ” it remains within the purview of the Igbo community to choose its own leadership and it is at liberty to present a leader from among itself if it so desires.” This is as against a speculation that the Deji of Akure wanted to install a new Eze Ndigbo against the wish of the Igbo community.
