His Majesty, Ogiame Atuwatse III, the Olu of Warri has commended Orode Meyiwa Uduaghan’s courage, boldness and determination in her bid to represent Warri North Constituency at the Delta State House of Assembly.
 
The Olu made the commendation in his Palace in Warri on Saturday May 14 when the Frontline PDP Warri North Constituency Aspirant and her retinue visited him to seek royal blessings.
 
Orode who has proposed “a greater Warri North” agenda for the development of the constituency informed the Olu that her administration will focus on seven key areas which include: Education on both primary and tertiary levels, job creation and ease of doing business, social protection, health, youth development, women’s right and opportunities, and peace and security. Orode believes that the seven key areas will help to improve the quality of life of the great people of Warri North LGA.
 
Responding, the Olu of Warri commended Orode’s courage, boldness and determination and prayed that the courage that has sustained her so far will not diminish. He pointed out that Orode is the only Itsekiri woman who has visited him to seek his blessings.
 
“I am not aware that any other woman has come here before, at least from the Itsekiri extraction contesting for any position.
 
“The thing about life and faith is that when words are spoken, people who come out to catch up with those voices, there is some sort of reward for them and on our coronation day when I said; women will no longer be invisible, I have that courage that it will happen. I thought we were looking at fifteen years.
 
There is a reward for first partakers, there is a blessing for first partakers, and so, I bestow that blessing on you. And no matter how this process goes, I really pray all women of Itsekiri extraction are given attention”. The Olu prayed.
 
Ogiame reiterated that Warri Kingdom and anybody who calls themselves Itsekiri, will be in his image because he (the Olu) is in God’s image. He stressed that his vision for Itsekiri is one that will make Nigeria and Africa envy her.
 
Meanwhile, a delegation of the Uduaghan and Abigborodo families and supporters of the House of Assembly hopeful was led by Chief Emmanuel Oritsejolomi Uduaghan. Parents of the House of Assembly hopeful, the immediate past Governor of Delta State, Dr. Emmanuel Ewetan Uduaghan and wife, Mrs Roli Uduaghan were in attendance.
 
Other dignitaries in attendance include Hon. Toju Godwin Abigo, Mr. Friday Ukueberuwa, Hon. Samuel Meyiwa Khalil, Mr. Austin Dote, Comr. David Yomi Okpaghoro, Mr. Sam Bobi and many others.
