Areyinka noted that the passage of an Olu and the enthronement of a successor was not a “Christmas party”, explaining that issues came up and took argument, debates, spirituality and unity of purpose to resolve to get a new king. According to him: “The book is filled with contents and graphical images from the announcement of the passage of the immediate past Olu through his obituary and the undercurrents that informed the coronation of the 20th Olu. The management of information, intrigues and from immediate family to ruling houses, and the Council of Chiefs in the mixture of sadness and joy that played out in the transition from one Olu to another could only have been so well captured by an insider and a partaker like the author. The writer satisfactorily used his vantage position as a partaker in the whole exercise to lead the reader into that process. That makes this book historic as a pool of rich history not only for Iwere nation, but for scholars and lovers of literatures.” Earlier, delivering the anniversary lecture, former commissioner and ex-Delta State House of Assembly member, Misan Okubeyinje, pleaded with the Itsekiri to cash in on “Cassava, Oil Palm, Aquaculture and Poultry Value Chain of Federal Government, for Prosperity of Itsekiri nation.” Arising from the cross pollination of ideas on the anniversary lecture, the Olu, Ogiame Ikenwoli directed the “Council of Chiefs and the Olu in Council to set up a committee to explore the agricultural potentials within his kingdom to come up an effective framework to maximize same taking advantage of existing FG incentives.” The first coronation anniversary of Ogiame Ikenwole continues today with an anniversary quiz for students and the command performance of Olu Akengbuwa, a stage play by Alex Eyengho featuring Nobert Young, Ejike Asiegbu, among other casts.

By Egufe Yafugborhi THE insight into the emergence of the 20th Olu of Warri, His Majesty, Ogiame Ikenwoli, came to the fore yesterday during a public presentation of a book, The Emergence of His Majesty Ogiame Ikenwoli As 20th Olu of Warri, authored by Toritseju Emiko, a prince of Warri Kingdom.
 The book which was unveiled as part of the celebrations of Ogiame Ikenwoli’s first coronation anniversary also featured an anniversary lecture which examined the agricultural potentials in Itsekiri. Reviewing the book, Chief Solomon Areyinka, said: “The attempt to document publicly so much of what transpired in secret in the making of the 20th Olu is a bold display of transparency.
 It shows the reign of Ogiame Ikenwoli is a very transparent one.”

Areyinka noted that the passage of an Olu and the enthronement of a successor was not a “Christmas party”, explaining that issues came up and took argument, debates, spirituality and unity of purpose to resolve to get a new king.
