Eze Joseph Nwabekee, the Chairman, Abia State Council of Traditional Rulers, has tasked fellow traditional rulers to decide appropriate means of settling certain community disputes before it escalates to chaotic proportions.
The Monarch gave the advice shortly after the presentation of Staff of Office to newly appointed Traditional rulers held in Michael Okpara Auditorium of Government House, Umuahia.
While speaking with newsmen, Eze Nwabubekee called on the monarchs to organise town union programs and help youths to achieve greater successes in their chosen legitimate areas of engagement as well as be receptive to the feelings of their people.
He urged them to shun high handedness and recognise the people in their communities as fellow human beings.
“I urge them to keep to the tenets of this institution and be loyal to the government that has recognized them”.
The Eastern Updates reported that no fewer than 29 new traditional rulers were presented a Staff of Office by the Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu.
