Asagba’s Positive Impact on Humanity Cannot Be Forgotten – Delta Speaker

The Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Emomotimi Dennis Guwor has commiserated with the people of Asaba and, indeed Deltans and the traditional institution in Nigeria, over the passage of the Asagba of Asaba, Obi Prof. Joseph Chike Edozien, CFR.

Reacting to Tuesday’s evening announcement of the transition of the revered traditional ruler by the Asagba-in- Council, Guwor said he was saddened by the news of the passage of the Monarch when preparations for his centenary birthday celebration were at the concluding stage.

The Speaker in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Nkem Nwaeke, described the demise of the Asagba as a big loss to the State, particularly, the people of Asaba, the capital of Delta State.

Rt Hon Guwor noted that the Professor of Medicine who ascended the throne of his forefathers in 1991, was a unifier and a cerebral traditional ruler with unequalled positive track records.

The Speaker who also reflected on the outstanding legacies of Prof Edozien as a Lecturer in the prestigious University of Benin, maintained that his reign as the Asagba of Asaba for three decades and three years witnessed unprecedented peace and development in the Kingdom.

Although the Monarch was blessed with longevity to have attained 100 years, Guwor said the Government still needed his wise counsel at all levels, including the 8th Assembly of the Delta State House of Assembly.
