…Wishes Gov Okowa Success in His Vice Presidential Bid
The Exco and entire membership of Egbema Leaders of Thought aka (ELOT) has congratulated His Royal Majesty, Amb. Meshack E. A. Ubabiri, Bini Pere IV, for his ascension of the throne of the ancient Egbema kingdom.
The ELOT in their goodwill message also hailed Senator Dr Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa, the Executive Governor of Delta State for his Magnanimous disposition towards the kingdom and they also pledged to support the Egbema Royal Father, HRM AMB Meshack E A Ubabiri Bini Pere lV for his accession to the throne of his forefathers.
ELOT made the pledge in a press release made available to newsmen in Ogbudugbudu by Elder Edmond Doyah-Tiemo during the presentation of staff of office.
“We are not in doubt of your sterling attributes that are glowing for everyone to see, as Egbema people, at this time in our history, we needed someone that will be a unifier, a rallying point, someone that will understand the obligations of protecting the cultural rights of the people and promoting their wellbeing.”
He urged the Agadagba to work closely with neighbouring Kings and commit himself to carrying his subjects along to a new era of peace, stability and progress in the great Egbema Kingdom in Delta and Edo State and Nigeria as a whole.
“As you ascend the revered throne of your great ancestors, you should be prepared to use your new position as Agadagba and as the primary custodian of the rich cultural heritage and practices of the Egbema people” to bring development to our people.
Tiemo urged the Agadagba to commit to advancing and outdoing the honorable legacies of his successors.
The new King was given the ELOT’s best wishes for a “lasting and greatly” fruitful reign in the service of his of his people and the nation.
