Igwe Cyprian Nevobasi, the Igwe Omeluenyi 1 of Aguneese, Ezeani 11 of Nmaku Kingdom in Enugu State has given a chieftaincy nomination letter to Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari.
The original idea, according to a State House source is for Adesina to be installed as a chief during the celebration of the 1st Grand Ofala to mark Igwe Nevobasi’s 14 years on the throne, next month.
The Igwe was personally at the State House, Abuja, to present the nomination letter to the S.A Media on December 5, 2017.
He disclosed that his traditional cabinet chose Adesina “because of the good work you have been doing for the country. President Muhammadu Buhari is God-sent, to bring change to Nigeria, and you have been supporting him in the assignment, to the admiration of myself and my cabinet members.”
The Igwe said he looked forward to a positive response from the nominee, noting that his first Ofala festival in 14 years promises to be a grand event.
With Igwe Nevobasi during the visit were Hon USA Igwesi, a former member of the House of Representatives, and Chief Emmanuel Okeke.
Adesina thanked the Igwe, his entire kingdom, and members of the delegation, saying:”I am simply short of words.”
