The newly elected traditional ruler of Tiv ethnic group of Benue State, HRM, James Ayatse (Tor Tiv the fifth) said he would use his office to encourage the people of the community to return to God.
The monarch made this pledge in a recent interview with Vanguard ahead of his victory today in Gboko.
According to him, “We need to look at our culture and see the positive aspects and use them for the development of our people. Those cultural aspects that develop the improvement of the people we’ll promote, such cultures like songs and dances can be used positively instead of using them negatively.
“We can use them for purposes of worshipping God, for example, and for purposes of entertainment in a way that will not expose or bring out negative aspects of human life.
“I’ve seen that it’s important that as a people we draw near to God and it will be my intention to encourage the Tiv nation to return to God, to submit to God and invite God into the affairs of our people so that God will guide and help us to overcome the different challenges that our people are going through individually and collectively as a Tiv nation.”
