An elder in Nasarawa State Mr Agwadu A. Ali has  appeal to people of Eggon-ero to always identify themselves and be their brothers keepers at all time.
According to him, the appeal becomes necessary in order  to develop and protect the  yet unborn generation of eggons.
He  made the appealed in a statement issued to newsmen in Kaduna .
The elder explained  that Eggon Ero consists of many clans namely, Ali Zaga, Likyagbu, Wume, Bekyno, Arugwadu, Sako, and Lanham.
He added that whoever addresses  himself or herself as an Eggon Ero must be from one of these clans.
Mr. Agwadu therefore warned that the people of Eggon Ero would not fold their arms and allow strangers to abuse  their culture and traditions.
He then appealed to the Eggon leaders to organize powerful cultural activities with a view to identify  real Eggons natives so as to separate the grains from the Chaff.
Mr. Agwadu said although some people have shown interest to be Eggons and it is with two hands and one mind that we welcome them but they must respect the culture and traditions and be law abiding.
Mr. Agwadu who described the Eggons as peoples with rich cultural back ground said  history and tradition of Eggons is very sacrosanct that should not be debase by any person or group of persons for whatever reason.
