 The oil-rich Ogulagha Kingdom Traditional Council of Chiefs in Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State has commended the actions and policies of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Vice President Kashim Shettima since assuming office on May 29.

While congratulating President Tinubu and Vice President Shettima on their successful inauguration, the kingdoms traditional council of chiefs described them as redeemers of Nigeria.

In the congratulatory letter issued yesterday in Warri and signed by Chief Igere William, Bolouwei of Ogulagha Kingdom; Chief Emaye M. Benidiwei (JP) l, Amatukpa of Ogulagha Kingdom, and Chief Prefugha Karawei (JP), the Tiegberifiewei of Ogulagha Kingdom, the traditional rulers expressed satisfaction with their leadership since assumption of office.

etter said: “On behalf of the Ebenanaowei of Ogulagha Kingdom HRM, King Joseph Timiyan, in Burutu LGA of Delta State, the entire natives and people of the Kingdom, the Traditional Council of Chiefs of the kingdom heartily and warmly congratulate the ‘redeemers’ of our country on their victory at the polls and consequent inauguration into their exalted respective offices.

“It is observed that since your inauguration on May 29, 2023, the decisions and actions taken so far by the administration has been credible and points to the fact that the ‘redeemers’ mean well for Nigerians.”

The Ijaw dominated community noted that President Tinubu’s desire to fight corruption by wiping away from offices persons who do not mean well for Nigerians was in the right direction, noting that the resources of the country must not be wasted.

“It is the wastage and improper direction of our national natural resources that have plunged the country into a mess where majority of Nigerians are swimming in poverty.

“These corrupt and wasteful Nigerians do not seem to know that these natural resources such as crude oil and gas which are golden eggs of the Nigeria economy are extracted from places where people inhabit.

“These categories of people do not also care about the associated sufferings of the people that inhabit such places, arising from environmental degradation and like effects. The Ogulagha Kingdom is one of such places inhabited by our people who suffer daily from the menace of crude oil and gas extraction from our God-given lands,” the traditional rulers noted.

The chiefs maintained that there is no proportionate reward in terms of physical infrastructure and human capital development in the kingdom, and therefore, requested the federal government under the present leadership to bring about changes from the status quo.

They, however, expressed confidence that President Tinubu’s government would bring the positive dividends of democracy to doorsteps of people.
