President Muhammadu Buhari has received the Olu of Warri Kingdom, His Royal Majesty Ogiame Atuwatse III.
The meeting, which took place at the State House on 17th May 2022, is the second between the President Buhari and the Monarch in five months.
Recall that President Buhari, in January, received His Royal Majesty, Ogiame Atuwatse III, and some of his chiefs, five months after his coronation as the Olu of Warri.
The President, during the meeting, pledged a fair deal to the Itsekiri people of Delta State.
Buhari was quoted in a statement by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, to have said:
I’m grateful for your visit and impressed by your patriotism. I’ve taken note of your requests, and will work on them as soon as politically possible.
In his remarks, the Olu of Warri said the visit was to primarily thank the President for sending a high-powered delegation to his coronation as the 21st monarch of the Kingdom, “and for your kind felicitation, goodwill and solidarity.”
He also reiterated the loyalty of the Itsekiri people to “one united Nigeria, as we support your government’s aspiration to provide security and economic prosperity to all Nigerians, irrespective of tribe, creed or religion.”
