OKERE-URHOBO MONARCH: THERE WILL NOW BE A NEW DAWN OF PEACE, PROGRESS IN WARRI

HIS Royal Majesty, Prof Paul Okumagba, Idama II, the Orosuen (king) of Okere Urhobo kingdom has assured his subjects and ethnic neighbors of reign of peace and progress in Warri and environs.

The monarch gave the assurance when members of the Warri Correspondents Chapel of the Nigerian Union Journalists (NUJ) visited his Warri palace,  Delta state to share the joy of his recent enthronement.

Idama II told the visitors that, "I am a Warri thoroughbred. I was raised and grew under a robust brotherhood with all neighbors, never by any means divided by tribe or language.

"The common language was the peculiar Warri pidgin English for which the oil city was widely known. Nido Nite and other popular clubs as well as basic schools scattered about the town were the melting points where we strengthened the brotherhood.

"I can't explain where we got it so wrong and deviated to violence in mutual distrust and ethnic disharmony. But my coming marks a new dawn. I can assure you peace will reign not only in my kingdom, but with my neighbors, especially closest Itsekiri and Ijaw"

In response to the Warri NUJ's plea for a piece of land to establish a permanent secretariat of the body in his domain, the monarch said,  "You will hear from me in the shortest possible time,  even before Christmas"

The NUJ delegation, led by Vanguard's Egufe Yafugborhi, Vice Chairman,  also included Joe Ogbdodu (Secretary), Dele Fasan of Galaxy Television, Odeya Ogbetuo and Edeki Igafe of News Agency of Nigeria.
