Million Miles Away

By Aboki Associates

Summary

A Million Miles Away is a biography of His Royal Majesty, Sen. Sir Emmanuel Onyatikpo Elayo. Events here-in have been Presented in six chapters. Chapter one makes straineous efforts to postulate some scanty information on the Historical background of the personality’s people, the Alago. The other five chapters all take an in-depth look into who the man is, attached also are memoirs of memory by his allies. At this juncture we would really like to urge scholars, particularly of historical and anthropological studies, to rise up and address the challenges posed by the controversial historical stands of some of the Niger-Benue Confluence nations, especially of the Alago-Idoma nations.

This six chapter book is not an attempt to exaggerate or politicise the personality of Elayo and the traditional seat of Osana of Keana. It is a humble attempt to present to the society one of the life wires and source of inspiration and of political direction to the political stability of Nasarawa State and Nige- ria at large. Osana of Keana as a traditional ruler is able to excel because of his rich experiences as a born teacher, an ad- ministrator and a remarkable politician. Living an exemplary, humane, accommodative and philanthropic life and a Knight of Saint Murumba (KSM), Osana truly deserves a documenta- tion of his biography while he is still alive to avoid apologetic ambiguities in an attempt to have a comprehensive biography of his life in his absence.

The first chapter traces the long history of the Alago and the emergence of Keana city with the institution of the tradi- tional stool of the Osana. The long history of the people is given prominence and intensity in this biography because the history of a king is a history of his place and people. The family, birth, growth and tutelage of His Royal Majesty, Senator Emmanuel Onyatikpo Elayo is captured in Chapter Two with the aim of presenting his diplomatic role to his people in Chapter Three.

Abstract

A Million Miles Away is a biography of His Royal Majesty, Sen. Sir Emmanuel Onyatikpo Elayo. Events here-in have been Presented in six chapters. Chapter one makes straineous efforts to postulate some scanty information on the Historical background of the personality’s people, the Alago. The other five chapters all take an in-depth look into who the man is, attached also are memoirs of memory by his allies. At this juncture we would really like to urge scholars, particularly of historical and anthropological studies, to rise up and address the challenges posed by the controversial historical stands of some of the Niger-Benue Confluence nations, especially of the Alago-Idoma nations.

This six chapter book is not an attempt to exaggerate or politicise the personality of Elayo and the traditional seat of Osana of Keana. It is a humble attempt to present to the society one of the life wires and source of inspiration and of political direction to the political stability of Nasarawa State and Nige- ria at large. Osana of Keana as a traditional ruler is able to excel because of his rich experiences as a born teacher, an ad- ministrator and a remarkable politician. Living an exemplary, humane, accommodative and philanthropic life and a Knight of Saint Murumba (KSM), Osana truly deserves a documenta- tion of his biography while he is still alive to avoid apologetic ambiguities in an attempt to have a comprehensive biography of his life in his absence.

The first chapter traces the long history of the Alago and the emergence of Keana city with the institution of the tradi- tional stool of the Osana. The long history of the people is given prominence and intensity in this biography because the history of a king is a history of his place and people. The family, birth, growth and tutelage of His Royal Majesty, Senator Emmanuel Onyatikpo Elayo is captured in Chapter Two with the aim of presenting his diplomatic role to his people in Chapter Three. Osana as a committed Christian (Catholic) is given attention in Chapter Four while his coronation as Osana of Keana takes the whole of Chapter Five. The text of interview with His Royal Majesty, Sir Emmanuel Onyatikpo Elayo (OON, KSM, FICEN, JP) the 33rd Osana of Keana by Agaigbe Terwase Gabriel forms the concluding chapter.
