Olodiama community, the release added, is part of the Ijaw nation, hence necessitating the visit by the royal majesty turned peace-bridge builder.

While in the Kingdom, the Pere of Gbaramatu Kingdom will participate in the coronation of HRM Godwin Oguyenbo, Alagbabunafa, Agadagba, the new Pere of the Kingdom.

Also, His Royal Majesty will use the opportunity to preach peace to the people of the Kingdom and the youths in particular.

In the same vein, other activities mapped out to be performed by the Pere of Gbaramatu Kingdom while in Olodiama Kingdom will include but not limited to offering prayers for peace to the gods of the land and God Almighty.
