Briga News Nigeria

The Olu of Warri, Ogiame Atuwatse III, has debunked the insinuation that there is conflict between the traditional thrones and the Christendom.

The monarch stated this when he received the Soun of Ogbomoso, Oba Ghandi Afolabi Olaoye, Orumogege III, a former pastor at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, in his Palace in Warri Kingdom.

The new Soun was installed on September 8, 2023, succeeding Oba Jimoh Oyewumi, who died on December 12, 2021.

A statement, yesterday, by the Olu’s Media Consultant, Adeniyi Ifetayo, said the monarch noted that traditional thrones and Christianity are not necessarily antithetical.

He also debunked the assumption that traditional institutions were synonymous with superstition and the worship of creations made by human hands and reasoning.

He, however, noted that the two institutions could play a complementary role that will contribute to the growth and development of the country.

In his address, the Soun of Ogbomoso advocated for the adoption of “cultural diplomacy for development” to transform the traditional institutions into impactful partners in the quest for accelerated growth and development for the people.
