Delta monarch to Okowa: Address Bomadi power outage, others

By Onozure Dania

HRM Godspower Oporomo, the Taraeza I, Pere of Kerebiri-Mein Kingdom,  has again pleaded with Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State to address the over two years power outage in his kingdom and the abandoned Bomadi Polytechnic project.


The Taraeza I noted that though the governor promised to tackle  the power outage challenges of the area during his recent visit to Bomadi, he stressed that the governor was not specific on when the community would be reconnected.

The monarch made the call while addressing his subjects during an end of year/ chieftaincy installation ceremony at Bomadi, headquarters of Bomadi Local Government Area of the state.

Oporomo thanked governor Okowa for his commitment to the presentation of staff of office to him, stating that the people of Kerebiri-Mein had spoken and it is left for the state government to do the needful.

He explained that Kerebiri-Mein people made up of 10 communities had a unique history of being among the earliest settlers in the Niger Delta region after their migration from Ogobiri in present day Bayelsa State and were neither conquered nor brought under the gazette of any kingdom.

He urged the 15 sons and daughters who were conferred with chieftaincy titles to be good ambassadors of the kingdom, stressing that their personality should speak for the kingdom.
