A stalwart of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Dr Henry Ofa, today, congratulated the Obi of Owa Kingdom, HRM (Dr) Emmanuel Efeizomor on the auspicious occasion of his 82nd birthday anniversary.
In a press statement issued in Asaba, the Delta State capital, Chief Ofa described the monarch as a phenomenal custodian of culture and traditional ruler of immaculate disposition.
He said the Obi of Owa of kingdom, who doubles as the Chairman of Delta State Council of Traditional Rulers, “has a long standing history with humility with which he has been able to sustain peace among the good people of Owa, nurture unity in the kingdom and stir commendable socio-economic development across the stretch of his area of jurisdiction”.
“Your Majesty, you are such a phenomenal leader whose impeccable ideals and philosophy are worth emulating. Like a shining light, you have blazed the trail in diverse areas of Owa Kingdom, reforming and refining practices that are inimical to wholesome growth and development and you have truly shown your subjects the clear path to contemporary civilization.
“Beyond your immediate territory, you have inspired genuine leadership and injected true purpose into the Delta State Council of Traditional Rulers as made lucidly evident in the oneness and unity of purpose that bind you and your colleagues.
“As you celebrate the goodness of the Almighty God who has kept you alive till this moment, I want to, again, assure you that great is the number of those who truly love, cherish and appreciate your indelible deeds. May you live to celebrate many more years of happiness, good health, prosperity, peace and love from everyone around you.”
Ofa urged the monarch to “continue on the righteous paths of peace, humility, friendliness, love which have clearly become your sobriquets in the minds of those who know you.”
