Delta State based rights' activist and stalwart of the All Progressives Congress, Barr. Robinson Oritsemuminogho Ariyo has declared that Chieftaincy title conferment in Warri Kingdom is not for sale, but bestowed on illustrious sons and daughters who have dedicated themselves toward the development of the kingdom.

Barr. Ariyo who made the assertion Saturday September 16 at the Olu Palace in Warri,Delta State shortly after he was conferred with the title of Egogo Iwere (Speaker) of Warri by the Olu of Warri, Ogiame Ikenwoli,assured that the honour will spur him to do more towards the development of Warri Kingdom.

The new Speaker of Warri Kingdom stated that the Chieftaincy conferment by the Olu of Warri was as a result of his activities geared towards development of Warri Kingdom in the last 15 years and enjoined Itsekiris across the world to continually pledge their loyalty to the respected Warri Monarch.

The Olu of Warri,Ogiame Ikenwoli in a remark,identified divide and rule on the path of Itsekiri and Ijaw as a major problem shutting them out in the award of oil blocs and marginal fields despite the huge crude oil and gas resources in their lands.

The Olu admonished his subjects to shun selfishness and greed so as to join him to move the kingdom to greater heights.
