Ureju Community in Warri North Local Government Area of Delta State rolled out drums to welcome their king, the Olu of Warri, Atuwase III and his wife, Olori Atuwase III.

Ureju community is said to be one of the five original and notable communities as at the inception of the Warri kingdom.

The historic visit, which is in continuation of activities marking the “Ghigho Aghfen” Ceremony, introduced recently by the Itsekiri monarch, provided him first hand information of the state of the community and created a sense of belonging for the people of Ureju.

Addressing his subjects during the visit, the Olu reiterated his commitment to the advancement of the Itsekiri Kingdom.

“We will not be leaders who sit in beautiful homes away from our people, out of touch with the reality of this kingdom, but we will be leaders who step out with a sense of responsibility to ensure our people get the attention and service they truly deserve.

“As a leader in this land, you must serve with integrity and be accountable to this kingdom and its people. The wealth of this great kingdom will be for the benefit of the people,” he added.

The Olu later donated the sum of N5,000.000 for the development of the community, while Olori Atuwatse III also donated N500,000 to the Ureju Women Cooperative Society.

The donation to the body would help to boost  the capacity as well as  assist the  women of the community in undertaking productive ventures to improve their standard of living.

The Itsekiris monarch later went on an inspection of  the site of the Military Barracks in Obitugbo/Koko Community to assess the level of work being done.

He had a brief  private chat with the Commanding Officer, 90 Amphibious Battalion Koko, Major Joshua Ajongo.
