Former governor of Lagos State and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has described the emergence of Prince Utieyinoritsetsola Emiko as the Olu of Warri-designate, as well-deserved.

In a congratulatory message on Wednesday, Tinubu, expressed joy over the announcement of the new Olu-designate.

Emiko, 37, was unveiled as the 21st Olu-elect of Warri, following the announcement of the death of the 20th Olu, Ogiame Ikenwoli.

Emiko holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Studies and Political Science, as well as a Master’s degree in Management.

Tinubu said, “I am delighted over the announcement of the new Olu of Warri Kingdom, Prince Utieyinoritsetsola Emiko.

“His eventual emergence is a testament to the fact that he is indeed ordained to mount the throne of his fore-fathers.

“I congratulate the Omoba and the entire Itsekiri nation. May his reign usher in peace, unity, rapid development and prosperity to Warri Kingdom.

“I send my best wishes for his continued good health, renewed energy, joy, happiness, prosperity and for the welfare and wellbeing of the Itsekiri people.”

Commiserating with the Itsekiri nation over the passing of their traditional ruler, Ogiame Ikenwoli, the 20th Olu of Warri Kingdom, Tinubu expressed gratitude to God that Ikenwoli lived well and ruled well.

He said, “He was a remarkable king, who worked hard to achieve peace and unity among his people and neighbours.

“My deepest condolences to the olori, members of the Ginuwa Ruling House, and the entire Itsekiri nation, particularly at this period of mourning.”
