President Muhammadu Buhari congratulated the Itsekiri Nation on announcing a new Olu of Warri, as pronounced by the Kingdom of Iyatsere of Warri.

The President, in a statement by his spokesperson, Mr. Femi Adesina in Abuja on Tuesday, also expressed his condolences with the people of the Itsekiri nation for the passing of the immediate past Olu, His Royal Majesty Ogiame Ikenwoli, who had been officially ad.

Buhari prayed that the designated Olu, Prince Utieyinoritsetsola Emiko, would have a peaceful reign, indicated by the massive development of the Itsekiri land.

He stressed the need for love and reconciliation after a thrilling race for the throne, noting that “maybe all dissension exists and it should be resolved through due process.”

The president further argued that as the Itsekiri nation mourned their late Olu for three months, he prayed for divine comfort for them and a gentle ascendant for the new traditional ruler.

The new Olu of Warri was born on April 4, 1984. (NAN)
