The Chairman of Warri South Local Government Area, Dr. Michael Tidi, has descried the late Orosuen of Okere-Urhobo, Prof. Paul Oghenero Okumagba, Idama II, as a disciplinarian gentleman to the core and one who stood for integrity, especially during his days as an academic in Delta State University, Abraka.

Dr. Tidi who spoke glowingly about the departed monarch when he led the top officials of the council on  a condolence visit to the Okere-Urhobo people on Monday, stated that as a young man growing up, he looked up to the late Prof. Okumagba in terms of academic pursuit.

The Warri South Chairman averred that the departed monarch was in support of unity among the various ethnic groups living in Warri and spoke of the need to immortalize him, so as to encourage younger ones to emulate his stance on discipline and integrity.

In his response, the head of Okumagba dynasty and prominent Okere–Urhobo Chief, Emmanuel Okumagba, described the presence of Dr. Tidi and his entourage as eloquent testimony of the regard the local government council has for the kingdom.

Chief Okumagba, while stating that monarch never allowed short cuts to success in his time as an academician, linked the departed his biological affinity to Ugbuwangue and Kiagbodo communities.

He assured the Warri South Council delegation that they would be duly informed of the rite of passage of the departed Monarch and noted that more assistance is expected from the council authority in the same regard.

Regent of Okere-Urhobo kingdom, Chief Emmanuel Omovie, Chief Bright Okumagba and Rev. David Otofia were among leaders of Okere-Urhobo present during the condolence visit.
