The Orosuen of Okere Urhobo Kingdom, Warri, HRM Emmanuel Okumagba, Okumagba II, has advised the Urhobos against being boastful.
The traditional ruler gave the advice during the solidarity visit of Urhobo Progress Union (UPU) World-wide at the weekend.
“We should not compare ourselves with God and should avoid uttering statements such as ‘If you disobey me, you are disobeying God and ‘ Over my dead body’,” he said.
Okumagba II also asserted that the word ‘olorogun’ often and proudly used by most Urhobo chiefs is a Yoruba and not Urhobo word and therefore suggested that an Urhobo chief should be properly addressed as ‘ohonworen’ or ‘okakuro’.
He earlier pledged to continue to work for the growth and development of Urhobo nation as a traditional ruler.
The leader of UPU delegation, Chief Kenneth Iwhewhe, who is also the Secretary General of the apex sociocultural body of Urhobo nation had earlier congratulated HRM Okumagba II on his installation as the Orosuen of Okere Urhobo Kingdom, Warri.
He also urged the Warri Urhobos of Agbarha Warri and Okere Urhobo to always unite in the interest of Urhobos in Warri South Local Government Area.
