I was in Warri that weekend, all the shops were forcefully closed, even the vulcanizer that opened in the early morning was chased away, i was like in this 21st century, truly Donald Trump was not so far from the truth, we went everywhere looking for where to print a report no way.

We shouldn't copy the white always, even the Nigeria constitution recognizes customary law provided it doesn't infringe on anyone's right.

So nothing backward about the celebration.

Ovie r'Uvwie, wo su ntor!

He is one of the most important kings in Urhoboland and he controls one of the largest kingdoms. Most of what we know as present day Warri is under his domain. His kingdom is also 100% urbanised, making Uvwie a center of Urhobo civilisation.

He is royalty personified! A true scion and advocate of Urhobo!

Umogu! Umogu! Wo sun tor, Wo rhie tor!

Happy 10th anniversary! Your reign has been peaceful and impactful.

Uvwie wadoo!

Troublemaker! Later your kinsmen such as Pazienza, Amarabae and co will come and say we are seeking relevance when you guys won't humble yourselves and face your Eastern front.

You guys derail or hijack just about every Urhobo thread on Nairaland with your busybodying and troublemaking. Rubbish!

Of course. We have our own traditional ways of enforcing laws and this has been so since time immemorial! If the Ovie has said no shops should be open in his traditional and historical domain, then no shop should open. Anyone who disobeys the instruction is indirectly taunting the Ovie and he can use his traditional police to enforce his decree. The government of the day does this everytime using the military or police.

So stop being all sanctimonious about a normal everyday thing.

Efewestern please try and get more photos. I'll check for more too and attach them to this post if I find.

I will do just that, they also opened a new palace for the king.. I think the palace is one of the most beautiful palace in southern Nigeria.

It was a week long activity which climaxed with the commissioning of the ultra modern new Uvwie permanent palace by Gov. Okowa. The ceremony also witnessed the conferment of chieftaincy titles on 29 distinguished individuals including my unclue. Uvwie arguably is one of the most urbanized local government in Nigeria. HRM E E Sideso a retired Director of Mint, CBN, is presently one of the most educated, exposed and travelled king in Urhobo land. May he continue to reign in good health.

Uvwie boma rufe!
Uvwie no go spoil.

Point of correction,warri is not under the jurisdiction of the ovie of Uvwie,Uvwie land terminates at Enerhen junction,where the boundaries between Uvwie and warri south stands.

The new palace is directly opposite my former parish.

My question for the Urhobos here: Among all the Urhobo kings: Ovie of Uvwie, Ovie of Ughelli, Oroseun of Okere-Urhobo , Orodje of Okpe, King of Agbon clan etc, which of them is the most popular or should I say commands the most respect?

I guess he is trying to say that Effurun is thought to be the same as Warri by those who don't know the difference.

Uvwie land is sometimes referred to as warri, Eg effurun, enereh e. tc, those places are also called warri hence the statement.

Not to mention other Urhobo kingdoms in the main warri. So chilax

Uvwie is synonymous with civil disturbances.The indigenous youths are epitome of trouble and intimidation,this attitude lead to the avalanche of oil firms from uvwie to port Harcourt.This level of roguery,and youths restiveness has lead to a high decline in development and economic activities.
Uvwie is reputed as the most dirtiest local government in the state considering its huge internally generated revenue which goes into private pockets.

I grew up in Uvwie but I'm surprised that the Uvwie and indeed the Urhobo people do not talk about their history to as far back as 200yrs ago. Since u r a proud Urhobo son, my question to u is, do the Urhobo people have a long history, why don't we have an urhobo kingdom(exception is Okpe kingdom) with up to 10 kings in their history

You seem to have problems understanding simple English. It was clearly stated that most of what we "know" as present day Warri is under the Ovie's domain. Many people regard Effurun, Enerhen, Ekpan, etc as part of the cosmopolitan Warri which has grown large via conurbation.

Stop ruffling your frail feathers.
