The community development committee chairman of Eneka town council in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State, Comrade Charles Woko has charged the newly crowned monarchs (Ezes and chiefs) in Apara kingdom particularly those from Eneka town to make peace their top priority.
Comrade Charles Woko gave this charge recently after the coronation of some chiefs and persons by the overall monarch of Apara Kingdom,HRM King Chike A.A. Worlu Wodo (JP) and the formal reception of Eze Lucky Amadi as the Eze Udo I of Apara Kingdom.
Comrade Woko who is also the mayor of Eneka told the new ezes and chiefs to always adopt alternative dispute resolution in resolving crisis and conflict in their communities.
“Do not allow crisis or misunderstanding to degenerate to the point of killings and legal actions. Therefore, always ensure you apply alternative dispute resolution techniques,” Comrade Woko advocated.
Chairman of the occasion, Elder David Nyeche said the coronation of Hon. Lucky Amadi as the Eze Udo 1 of Apara Kingdom was well deserved as he has no doubt Eze Amadi will do well on the throne.
He described Hon. Eze Amadi as an illustrious son of Eneka who has always advocated for the progress and development of the Eneka town council.
“Eneka is blessed with an illustrious son such as Eze Amadi who thinks about the progress of Eneka,” Elder Nyeche added.
In his remark, Hon. Lucky Amadi the new Eze Udo 1 of Apara Kingdom said there was the need to lavish thanks to God for mercy and goodness to the people of Eneka.
“We thank God for what He is doing in Eneka. We thank God for what He is doing for the people of Eneka.”
High Chief Eze Lucky Amadi (KSC) said with the honour done him, his wife, and his entire family, he would not let the people of Apara Kingdom down.
“I will not let you down. I will not disappoint you. I know to whom much is given much is expected. Therefore, I will do my best for the people of Apara Kingdom,” High Chief Amadi promised.
He commended all those who graced and supported him at the coronation venue and well as those who attended his reception at his residence.
