WHY EGBIRA AND NOT EGBURA

Author:_Jibril Usman

Egbira Koto people were known as Egbura while the Okene were known as Ebira.

Sometime in 2012, the Ohiku Egbira made up of elders and traditional rulers from all the Egbira speaking areas/zones (1. KOTO from Kogi LGA of Kogi State, 2. OKENE from the Central Senatorial District of Kogi State, 3. ABAJI from Abaji Development Council of Federal Capital Territory – FCT, 4. TOTO from Toto LGA of Nasarawa State, 5. UMAISHA from Toto LGA of Nasarawa State, 6. MOZUM from Bassa LGA of Kogi State and 7. ETUNO from Igarra LGA of Edo State) in the country and in diaspora met at Dabras Hotel, Okene to jointly adopt a more suitable name called EGBIRA with which we are to be known and called. That was how the name Egbira comes up. Though we still have some of our people addressing us as Egbura, the accepted name as agreed by our elders and traditional rulers of the entire Egbira speaking areas/zones in Nigeria and in diaspora is EGBIRA.
