Breaking: Gbong Gwom Jos abolishes Eze Igbo title in Platuea state


www.odogwublog.com reports that there is tension among Igbo Community in Jos, Plateau state when the Gbong Gwom JOS ,Da Jacob Gyang Buba announced the abolition of Eze Igbo title.
Buba was unhappy on the divisions and acrimony Ndigbo expose themselevs just to elect or appoint a leader to oversee their affairs and represent their interest in Jos and his palace.
He therefore suspended all dealings with Ndigbo in his palace until the final resolution of the crisis amongst Igbos.
He allegeldy warned people to stop parading themslves as Eze Igbo in Jos, since Eze means a traditional ruler adding that it is not proper to have two kings in the same domain and as such ,he cannot accord recognition to the Eze Igbo title on the Plateau. He allegedly prefers Onye Ndu Ndigbo or Igbo representative in his council or by whatever name not in clash with another kingdom’s status.
The Authority gathered that Buba had recently convened a stakeholders meeting with the Igbo community residents in Jos where he made his opinion known .
The Royal father decried the acrimonious division and lack of unity amongst Ndigbo in Jos during the meeting held at his palace.
He stressed that no meaningful progress can be achieved without unity which promotes peaceful coexistence on the Plateau .
Buba admonished Igbo in Jos to strive towards genuine reconciliation amongst themselves so that they can forge a united front and nominate a (leader) who will represent them in deliberations in the palace .
He also allegedly commended Chief Samuel Achi for the cordial working relationship he held with him as Igbo representative or Onye Ndu Ndigbo in his palace before now.
He informed them that the seat for Ndigbo in his papalce is reserved for igbos and will remain vacant until the peaceful resolution of the crisis amongst Igbos and the subsequent presentation of a single representative to him by the Igbos in Jos.
In the same vein,the Gbong Gwom Jos allegeldy warned Prof. J. E. C Obilom who was present during the meeting to stop parading himself as Eze Igbo in Jos. He enthused that since Eze means a traditional ruler ,we cannot have two kings in the same domain and as such ,he cannot accord recognition to the Eze Igbo title on the Plateau.
He ended his speech by tasking igbos in JOS to select a leader and present the person to him before any recognition will be accorded igbos in JOS in his palace.
The Authority gathered that after the debriefing, two lawyers, Innocent Asogwa and Uche Ngbemena apologized to Gbong Gwom Jos for the existing disunity amongst Igbos in Jos and assured him that the Igbos will strive to make peace amongst themselves and bring the good tiding of peace to his Palace in the near future.
