The Olu of Warri Kingdom, Ogiame Atuwatse III paid a thank you visit to the Delta State Governor, His Excellency, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa on the 5th of November 2021. This would be the first official visit by Ogiame Atuwatse III since his coronation in August 2021. It would be recalled that the Delta State Governor was unable to make the coronation ceremony due to a diary clash as his father was laid to rest on the same day. The governor though attended the thanksgiving ceremony of the First Class Monarch at Aghofen (the Olu of Warri Palace) the next day.
The Itsekiris living in Asaba on hearing of the visit turned out in large numbers in their colourful dressing to welcome His Imperial Majesty, Ogiame Atuwatse III. This turned out to be a massive carnival.
The Governor of Delta State was excited by the visit and thanked Ogiame Atuwatse III for the visit. He advised that his government would continue to work with His Imperial Majesty to promote peace and unity across the state, the geographical region and the entire Nation.
