The human rights activist charged the Ogiame Atuwatse lll, the Olu of Warri, HRM Tsola Emiko to uphold justice in all circumstances even if it goes against himself or the people who are close and dear to him as justice denied in any kingdom disrupts the peace of that kingdom.

Comrade (Amb) Agberen admonished the king to overlook the disagreements in the land among few persons and focus on what would bring growth, development and peace to the people just as he stressed the importance of HRM to strengthen the unity of the people by reaching the aggrieved and bring them to the fold, adding that a king is respected when he is peaceful with his subjects.

He said: “The king should use his wealth of experience to reach the aggrieved in the kingdom, harmonise them and chat a way forward because a king is respected when he is peaceful with his subjects both home and abroad.”

The human rights activist prayed that the king would reign in peace and bring the needed growth and development to the people.

He used the medium to sue for the cooperation of itsekiri sons and daughters both at home and abroad especially the aggrieved in way or the other to forgo grudges and work with the king to move the kingdom forward as”united we stand and divided we fall.”

He said the land is full of opportunities which, when harnessed, would bring the speedy growth, development and peace to the kingdom for the benefit of all.
