Okuama: Your Presence Gives Me Hope, HRM Ikolo Says As He Pays Appreciation Visit To Senator Ned Nwoko Following His Release

 

The traditional ruler of Ewu Kingdom, HRM Ovie Clement Ikolo, visited Senator Ned Munir Nwoko, the Distinguished Senator representing the Delta North senatorial district, to formally express his appreciation for the instrumental role the Senator played in his release.

Accompanied by his wife and some family members, the traditional ruler visited Senator Nwoko’s residence in Maitama, Abuja.

HRM Ikolo heartily expressed his gratitude to Senator Nwoko, who not only visited the office of the Chief of Defence Staff alongside other Delta Senators to intercede on his behalf but also visited him in his Asokoro cell. In the words of the traditional ruler, “The day you came to visit me was the day I regained my bearings. Your presence gave me hope.” HRM Ikolo, who prior to this encounter didn’t have a personal relationship with Senator Ned Nwoko, expressed his intention to visit the lawmaker again for further discussions.

In the same vein, the wife of the traditional ruler thanked the Distinguished Senator, especially for his consistent calls and assurances during the king’s detention. “You have never failed to return calls whenever you promised to do so. You always keep to the time you set. I highly respect you for that,” she said.

In response, Senator Ned Nwoko stated that he is humbled to have been instrumental in the process and grateful that the collective efforts yielded positive results. He encouraged the king not to be discouraged by the ordeal. “Who knows what could have happened if you weren’t detained. Perhaps it was necessary to prevent something worse. Every adverse situation may not always be as dire as it seems,” the Senator remarked.

The lawmaker also expressed appreciation to the military, especially the Chief of Defence Staff, for their unwavering cooperation and swift action.
