President Bola Tinubu has described the late Paramount traditional ruler of Ebiraland in Kogi State, His Majesty, Alhaji Dr. Ado Ibrahim, as a king in a class of his own.

“He had a masterful way of handling issues. He was very knowledgeable and wise.”
The President sympathised with Egbira people across the country and in Diaspora, the government and people of Kogi State over the loss of the monarch, who was the Acting Chairman of the Kogi State Council of Traditional Rulers.
President Tinubu prayed to Allah “to grant His Majesty Aljannah Firdaus.”
He asked the good people of Kogi State to take solace in the legacy of peace and fellowship left behind by the late monarch.
