Lawan joined other distinguished Senators, his family members, friends and political associates in celebrating the joyous occasion with his deputy whom he described as “a worthy son of Urhobo and great representative of Delta Central Senatorial District.”

In a congratulatory message, Senator Omo-Agege, who is the Leader of the All Progressives Congress in the South South, emphasised that children and followers who sustain inherited legacies contribute significantly to building not only a family name but a great nation and humanity.

The monarchs in their submission before the Senate Ad  hoc Committee on Constitution Review said that for peace and security to reign in the country, particularly at the grassroots level,  the traditional rulers must be given  constitutional role in governance as was the practice in the past from pre – colonial era , during colonial period and even post colonial era up to 1976.

His Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Yomi Odunuga, said in a statement issued on Wednesday in Abuja that Omo-Agege’s appeal came on the heels of recent threats by a coalition of nine militant groups in the Niger Delta expressing readiness to resume hostilities by attacking oil and gas facilities.

Senator Omo-Agege also commiserated with the late Editor’s family, management and staff of the New Telegraph Newspaper, Nigeria Union of Journalists and the Nigeria Guild of Editors over the unfortunate incident.
