Joel-Onowakpo confers with Idudu of Emede title
The Delta South Senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Hon Joel-Onowakpo Thomas has been conferred with a chieftaincy title by the Ovie of Emede Kingdom, HRM Johnson Egbo, Ewhiri II as the ‘Idudu’ of Emede Kingdom.
His Royal Majesty said Joel-Onowakpo was conferred with the title to honour him for his immense contribution towards the growth and development of Emede community.
In a statement by Ewhiri in his palace, he said the former chairman of Delta Board of Internal Revenue (DBIR) has always extricated himself from the meritorious recognition but today, he has been outsmarted and honoured accordingly.
Meanwhile, the Idudu of Emede Kingdom said he was overwhelmed by the honour. He added that he thought he was coming to the palace to mark the new year with the King but unknowingly to him a chieftaincy title was presented instead.
