CONGRATULATIONS DISTINGUISHED SEN. AHMED LAWAN ON YOUR CHIEFTAINCY TITLE
I heartily congratulate you on the chieftaincy title conferred on you by the Enyi 1 of Aba, HRH, Eze I. A. Ikonne as ‘Onyentukwasi Obi 1 of Aba’ in recognition of your exemplary leadership and outstanding service to Nigeria.
This is coming few days after you were conferred as the Ganuwan Kabi of Kebbi, by the Emir of Agungun alongside your long term friend, the Chief Whip of the Senate, Sen. Orji Uzor Kalu who was also turbaned as the Kibbiyan Kabi of Kebbi.
It was truly my desire that as a true nationalist who knows no tribe, Colour or religion that the southerners will also toe this path in recognition of your support. I am gladdened to see it come to reality in no time with this unique title ‘Onyentukwasi Obi 1 of Aba’ which means ‘The one we can trust’.
This title comes with its responsibilities, one of which includes promoting national agenda that will foster the inclusion of Ndi Igbo and the unity of the country.
Once again, on behalf of Bende Federal Constituency, We heartily congratulate you on this title and we pray it brings you peace and prosperity.
Rep. Benjamin Kalu
