24th June, 2017.
HRH Eze (Sir) Morgan Nwenendah Amadi, JP.
Your majesty, on behalf of the chiefs, elders, men, women, youths and children of Okporo Okani-Eli Okwurusi kingdom, I want to wish you very warm congratulations on your special day of birth, as you mark the addition of another year to your enviable and achievements studded years.
Anyone who has good knowledge of your noble and high-flying achievements in the corporate world before bowing to your people’s pressure to take up the mantle of traditional leadership as Eze Oha Okporo Okani-Eli Okwurusi kingdom, will agree with me that there is no better time to celebrate a stellar personality like you than a day like this.
From your university days till this day, your life has been eventful and associated with laurels, awards and recognition from well meaning individuals, association, church/christian bodies and corporate bodies of no mean repute.
Only last year, you beat all other traditional rulers and royal fathers in the state to bag the outstanding award of Traditional Ruler Of The Year in the Garden City Advancement Award (GACAA 2016). This is not just a recognition of your towering personality but a clear testament of your exemplary and people-oriented traditional administration since you ascended the revered Okporo Okani-Eli Okwurusi kingdom royal stool, in less than two years now.
As if that is not enough, the Rivers State government deemed it proper to recognize our kingdom and stool, by fittingly classifying to a second class status. This has made the Okporo Okani-Eli Okwurusi kingdom stool one to be reckoned with within Ikwerre supreme traditional council and Rivers State traditional institution in general.
I urge you to use this occasion of your birthday to soberly reflect on how much God has blessed and favoured your sojourn on earth thus far, while garnering more momentum to continue the discharge of effective traditional service to our kingdom and philanthropic/charity works to churches and humanity at large.
While we key into this year’s birthday celebration, all of us in your kingdom look forward to celebrate more years of prosperity, promotion and higher calling.
With you, it can only get better. Live forever, our king.
Happy Birthday, His Royal Highness!
Happy Birthday, The reigning Traditional Ruler Of The Year Awardee!!
Happy Birthday, Eze Oha Okporo Okani-Eli Okwurusi kingdom!!
Chief Sir Gilbert Elechi Chukwu
(For Okporo Okani-Eli Okwurusi kingdom)
