The first coronation anniversary of the Olu of Warri, Ogiame Atuwatse lll, was graced with a thanksgiving service at the palace chapel in Warri, attended by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta, the Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege, former Governor James Ibori of Delta State, Senator James Manager, and others.
The founder and Presiding Pastor of the Word of Life Bible Church, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, in a sermon, underscored the importance of thanksgiving, saying that thanksgiving throws the gate open for more blessings from God.

Oritsejafor, congratulating the Olu on his first coronation anniversary, called on him to continue to lean on God for divine direction that would enable him to take the oil city to enviable height.

The clergyman said Warri had the potential of becoming the Dubai of Africa if stakeholders and government at all levels contribute towards the peace and overall development of the city.

“Thanksgiving opens the gate for more blessings; it brings you into the presence of God for divine favour through which God flavours our labour.

“If you are not grateful, you will become a great fool. We must learn to emphasise the importance of thanksgiving in our daily life,” Pastor Oritsejafor added.

Pastor Oritsejafor advocated for a paradigm shift in the orientation of youths in contemporary Nigerian society towards hard work which, he said, was a springboard for sustainable success in life.

Other dignitaries at the anniversary include the presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Adewale Adebayo; the Speaker of Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori; Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, represented by his wife, Mrs. Roli Uduaghan; Chief Kenneth Gbagi; Great Ogboru and the Dein of Agbor Kingdom, HRM, Dr. Benjamin Ikechukwu Keagborekuzi l, among others.

The Olu of Warri was accompanied to the special thanksgiving by Itsekiri Chiefs, including reputable sons and daughters of the Itsekiri kingdom.
