The Leading PDP aspirant for Isoko Federal Constituency seat in the House of Representatives, Pastor Ukodhiko Ajirioghene Jonathan rejoiced with His Royal Majesty, Barrister Anthony Uvietobore Ogbogbo, Ibuka I, the Ovie of Ozoro Kingdom on the occasion of his birth anniversary on Thursday.
In a congratulatory message he released at his Otor-Igho country home on May, 12, 2022, Ukodhiko described the Ovie of Ozoro as “one of Nigeria’s most erudite monarchs, who has distinguished himself as a lawyer and an intrepid crusader of the Isoko rights and freedom“.
According to him, “over the years, HRM, Anthony Ogbogbo has been known for being fearless and highly intelligent and has had cause to champion the great interest of his people of not only Ozoro but the Isoko nation in general”
“I see him as a neo-nationalist-monarch who not only put his all in agitating for the socio-economic advancement and political development of the people of Ozoro in particular and Isoko in general,“
While commending the Ozoro monarch for his contributions to the promotion of values, peace and stability in Isoko, Ukodhiko expressed his desire to ensure a constructive engagement with the “Ivies”, saying that the “our respected Isoko traditional rulers will be central to my engagements in the House of Representatives once i am elected into the Green Chamber as I will consult them from time to time to promote the interest of our people.“
Engr Jonathan Ukodhiko prayed to God Almighty to grant the Ovie of Ozoro more years in good health and wisdom to lead the people of his Kingdom.
