The Minister of State, Labour and Employment, Chief Festus Keyamo, SAN, has commiserated with the Itsekiris Nation on the passage of their reverend monarch, the immediate past Olu, His Royal Majesty, Ogiame Ikenwoli.
This was made known by his Senior Special Assistant, Legal & Community Affairs, M. E. Ukusare.
While praying for the repose of the soul of the late monarch, he equally congratulated the new Olu-designate, Prince Utieyinoritsetsola Emiko, who was announced by the Iyatsere of Warri Kingdom.
The Minister said he looks forward to hitch-free coronation ceremonies whilst praying for God’s guidance and a successful reign on the exalted throne.
Keyamo therefore advised those aggrieved over the announcement of the new Olu-designate to either accept the decision in good faith in the overall interest of the Itsekiri Kingdom and Delta State or have recourse to due process and legal avenues in ventilating their dissent.
