By Enaibo Asiayei

The President of the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC), Pereotubo Oweilaemi, has commended the electoral panel and the delegates to the election of the Pere of Tuomo kingdom for peacefully selecting a successor to the throne.

He made the commendation in a congratulatory message signed on his behalf by Daniel Dasimaka, the Spokesman of the umbrella youth body.

Going further, the IYC also commended “the observer of the election and Chairman of Burutu Local Government Council, Rt. Hon. Godknows Angele, for midwifing a process that has ushered in a King into that exalted throne.”

IYC further thanked those it described as lovers of peace in Tuomo Kingdom “for their steadfastness in conducting a hitch free royal election.”

While congratulating the Pere-elect, Hon. Justice Francis Tabai, the youth body stressed: “Your victory and ascension to that exalted throne will in no doubt marked the beginning of a new dawn in Tuomo Kingdom. Your pedigree and wealth of experience in public governance will uplift the Kingdom to an unimaginable height.

“We are appealing to the contender of the seat and all those involved in the selection process to sheath their sword. The election has come and gone; a winner has emerged in the process. 

“Let the Kingdom therefore unite to work with the new King for the betterment of all and sundry.

“Due to the economic importance of the Kingdom to the State’s economy and its strategic position in the comity of kingdoms, IYC is appealing to the Delta State Government to accord the King with a first class status. 

“We also call for immediate presentation of staff of office as soon as the coronation processes are completed.”
