When the Uwangue of Warri, Gabriel Awala, led a delegation to his palace in Benin late Thursday to formally inform him of the new Olu’s coronation, scheduled for Saturday, he spoke.
Oba Ewuare II stated that proper observance of ancient traditions and customs of the land would help to preserve the Itsekiri nation’s cultural heritage.
He pledged his support for the Olu-designate, saying that the “cultural and traditional ties between Warri and Benin kingdoms would be strengthened.”
The Benin monarch promised to send a high-powered delegation to the coronation of the new Olu Emiko from his palace.
Mr Awala had previously informed the Benin monarch that they had come to formally inform him of the new Olu’s crowning.
He described Warri’s relationship with Benin as cordial, and said the Benin monarch would continue to be a father figure to all.
According to NAN, the first Olu of Warri was a prince from the Benin palace, according to legend.
