Professor Patrick Muoboghare, the immediate past commissioner for Higher Education in Delta state, has warned intruders to desist from interfering in Uwheru internal affairs as the community will turnaround against such persons
He gave this warning when he paid a homage to the newly installed traditional ruler of Uwheru kingdom, HRH, Simpson Sapele Obruche at Uwheru in Ughelli north local government area.
According to him, “The king is as powerful we make him, we are his people that make him, we are his people and subjects and i will make sure that nobody derides our traditional ruler while we are alive.
“Today i am here to pay homage to my traditional ruler, the former one joined his ancestors sometime ago and the process of the installation of his successor has to be put in place and His Highness, Simpson Sapele Obruche emerged as the Odion r’Ode of Uwheru.
“He was installed few days ago and we are waiting for the Staff of office and as a free born of Uwheru, it behoves on me to come and pay homage and that is why i am here.
“My coming to pay homage is to open doors for others to come and do same because Uwheru is one large community, we are one people and we give our traditional ruler that regard.
“Some people see me as being radically inclined but this radically inclined Muogboghare is a very native man who do not play with culture”.
“It is normal there are issues, apart from the hereditary throne, father to son, every other throne is struggled for and it is the tree that bear good fruits that children stone, children do not throw stones at trees that do not bear fruits.
“The stool of Uwheru is a very fruitful one and people would naturally throw stone as it. But what we are known for is no matter what the skirmishes are, there are elders that would say enough is enough and everybody will backed out.
“It has happened before and it will happen the future but nobody come to settle issues in Uwheru, we settle among ourselves because it is a household thing.
“What pains me is that i am not a member of the Ukoro, and i can never be a traditional ruler in Uwheru, though it belongs to Uwheru but my father did not put me in Ukoro”.
