Sequel to the unfortunate announcement on social media platforms on Friday, June 4, 2021 that a new Ahta Òrò has been “elected”, the apex traditional body in Òrò, Obio Ifong Isong Òrò(OIIO) formerly known as the Council of Oro Traditional Rulers (COTR) hereby appeals to Oro people to remain calm as it addresses the issue in line with the due process of the well known Oro tradition.
It also warns against further comments on this matter either on social media or any other medium for that matter.
This decision was reached today, Saturday June 5, 2021 during an emergency Executive meeting of the body.
The apex traditional institution therefore enjoins all indigenes of Òrò, residing at home or in the Diaspora to discountenance any information purporting to announce the “election” of a new Ahta Oro as such event has not taken place in the eye of Oro culture and tradition as well as extant Rules pertaining thereof.
