WARRI-As the Itsekiri monarch, the Olu of Warri, His Majesty Ogiame Ikenwoli celebrates his 2nd coronation anniversary against the back drop of constant ill-motivated comments by some persons on matters concerning activities in the palace, Itsekiris have been enjoined to desist from the inimical practice of denigrating the revered institution in the various social media platforms.


This admonition was given by the Olulaye of Warri kingdom, Chief Eugene Ikomi yesterday while speaking to newsmen at his residence in Warri in celebration of the 2nd coronation anniversary of His Majesty, Ogiame Ikenwoli, saying that the Olu symbolizes the unity of the people with one King and one language.

While congratulating the Olu of Warri, Chief Ikomi who stated that the royal father has been able to achieve peace and harmonious co-existence with neighboring tribes within and outside his kingdom disclosed that the reign of Ogiame Ikenwoli will usher in massive physical/ infrastructural growth and development adding that empowerment of youths through employment and provision of vocational skills would ensure a self-sustainable living for them at all times.


The Port Harcourt based business mogul stated that what appears to be agitating the minds of some persons currently in the kingdom are teething problems associated with all new regimes the world over that would soon been surmounted and appealed to “Social Media Tigers” to stop the attacks as it amounts to washing their dirty linen in the public as well as exposing the throne to public odium before their immediate neighbours and the larger society.


Chief Eugene commended the Ogiame Ikenwoli for his foresight in conferring chieftaincy titles on deserving young and vibrant Itsekiri sons and daughters, saying that “these young new chiefs would be the ones to take over from the old chiefs as they become too feeble and weak to function effectively at the palace and need time to rest after very active service to the palace and the Itsekiri nation”.


He charged all aggrieved persons in the kingdom to sheath their swords and key into the new agenda of the palace by their active support and loyalty to the monarch in order to move the Itsekiri nation forward for the benefit of all, even as he dismissed claims that some palace chiefs have renounced their titles, describing it as rumours because no chiefs has officially return their beads to the palace.
