Olu of Warri hosts Palace watch ceremonies

His Majesty Ogiame Atuwatse III (Olu of Warri) has hosted the second edition of the Ghigho Aghofen (Palace watch ceremonies) for the Inorin community.

The Olu of Warri initiated the palace watch ceremony to promote cordial relationships among the monarch and other communities that cannot access the palace due to logistics issues.

According to a palace source, the Ghigho Aghofen program which was its second edition brought about cordial relations between the Inorin community members and the Olu of Warri kingdom.

Upon the assumption of their watch duty, the Inorin community brought their optimum game of dance, colour and tradition to the fore.

Other cultural groups paid homage to the monarch, with much singing and glamour.

The essence of the palace watch ceremonies is that communities will be changing guard every three months.

” It means representative of each community will live in the palace for three  months. During this period, the Palace will focus on the community and solve their issues. This laudable initiative will afford the monarch to reach out to different communities”.

The legacy will last for the next fifty years or more. The rebirth of the Warri Kingdom is a great change in the right direction.
