Why I broadened Warri Council of Chiefs- Warri Monarch
President Muhammadu Buhari & The Olu of Warri, Ogiame Ikenwoli

The Olu of Warri, Ogiame Ikenwoli has revealed that his decision to broaden Warri Council of Chiefs (Ugbajo Ojoye Iwere) was to include more professionals and digital savvy, with a view to further enriching the council’s capacity for optimal output, noting that same reason informed the increase in membership of the Olu- in- Council.

 

The revered Warri Monarch who made the clarification Wednesday December 12 at the Olu Palace in Warri, Delta State, during the grand-finale of his 3rd coronation anniversary, quipped that his vision for the Itsekiri Nation, “is focused on achieving the growth, progress and development of our people”.

 

He stressed “this vision has remained that of a state that is devoid of rancor, bitterness, with less destructive strife and conflicts and where our resources are deployed to unite us as a people that rise above petty self- interest and parochial immediate gratification and strive for our collective interest and gains,” adding, “we are resolute in our conviction and commitment to doggedly pursue this course for the benefits of all of us, especially for our corporate National entity”.

 

While noting that the palace will remain open to constructive and redemptive ideas as well as suggestions, The Olu of Warri disclosed that as part of strategies for internal peace in his domain, he set up a conflict resolution committee to diffuse tension and resolve conflicts among itsekiri people.

 

The Monarch commended President Muhammadu Buhari administration for ongoing work in the hitherto long abandoned Koko-Ogheye Road, the dredging of Escravos Bar, leading to the Delta Ports in Warri and the power project in Benin as well as Escravos River axis, just as he appealed to the Federal Government to sort out whatever bottle-neck that might be affecting resumption of work at the multi million dollars Gas Revolution Industrial Park, GRIP project at Ogdigben in Warri South-West Local Government Area, Delta state.

 

In a message through the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu, President Muhammadu Buhari, asserted that the failure of Itsekiri Nation to contribute her resources to the economy can lead to the failure of Nigeria.

 

He assured that gas currently fled in Warri area, will soon be put to commercial use and noted that efforts are in top gear to ensure that Warri Refining and Petrochemical Company, WRPC comes back to reasonable performance.

 

Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa in his remark, stated that his administration will ensure that Ubeji –Ifie Road is completed on schedule and promised that efforts were on to stop perennial flooding in Warri during rainy season.

 

The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III, described The Olu of Warri, Ogiame Ikenwoli as a man who loves humanity and peace, saying the coronation anniversary celebration gave him the opportunity to see “people in different beautiful attire that we cannot find anywhere”

 

The Sokoto Monarch opined, “we need to have peace, to have good leaders”.

 

Fresh Angle International can report that former Delta State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan and All Progressives Congress, APC Governorship Candidate for Delta State, Chief Great Ovedge Ogboru, were among prominent personalities that graced the grandeur ceremony.
