I have seen three Olu of Warri, I don’t want to see fourth coronation – Obasanjo

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, on Sunday prayed not to see the coronation of another Olu of Warri.

Obasanjo said he wishes not to see the fourth coronation of Olu of Warri because he has seen three in his lifetime.

The former president spoke during the thanksgiving service of the newly-installed Olu of Warri, Ogiame Atuwatse III, at the Palace of the Olu of Warri, Warri South Local Government Area of Delta State.

He called on the newly installed king and people of Itsekiri to work with the new monarch to work together towards achieving greater development in the kingdom.

“I am one of the happiest on your installation because God has especially favoured me to see three Olus and I don’t pray to see the fourth one.

“I want to emphasise that the position you occupy today is given to you by God but with your own people surrounding you and you must always remember that.

“If God has given you a role to perform you will be offending God if you fail to perform that task,” he said.
