By Mick Oseji, Asaba

Less than two weeks after he was coronated, the Olu of Warri, Ogiame Atuwatse III, has dissolved all traditional councils, committees and sub-committees in Iwereland with immediate effect.

His Majesty, Ogiame Atuwatse III announced this in a statement issued from the royal palace in Warri on Tuesday.

Ogiame Atuwatse III ascended the revered throne of Warri Kingdom on August 21, 2021.

He stated that a revalidation and confirmation exercise would commence on September 2, 2021.

The 37-year-old Olu, who is the first son of late Atuwatse II, in the statement, cited Section 25 of the Delta State Traditional Rulers Council and Chiefs Law Capt. 2, Law of Delta State of Nigeria, 2008, to back his decision.

The statement reads in part, “I, Atuwatse Ogiame III, hereby, announce, for the information of the general public, the Delta State Government and particularly, the Traditional Rulers and Chiefs Committees, the dissolution of all traditional councils, committees, sub-committees and the scheduled exercise of revalidation/confirmation effective from 2nd day of September 2021.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the Warri Council of Chiefs, the Olu-in-Council, all standing ad-hoc and sub-committees are dissolved forthwith.”
