Urhobo Daily had earlier reported academic activities grinded at the Olomu Secondary School as Olomu women in their thousands recently took to the street protesting against the change of Olomu Secondary School Otorere-Olomu to Ogbon College in Ughelli South LGA of Delta State.
MATTERS ARISING ON OLOMU SECONDARY SCHOOL:
- Traditional institutions are supposed to be the closest rulership to the indigenous people
- By that reason nothing should be done by them without first duly getting the people’s conscience.
- In the case of any decision taken without first consulting the subjects, and where the subjects blatantly turn down such position of the ruler, the onus is on the ruler to allow the will of the people prevail.
- The reason is to prove that he is not just a ruler but the people’s leader.
- To prevent trouble and to avert any possible BLOODSHED that may tarnish the image of the Royalty.
- Subject to the above, in my personal capacity both as a bonafide son of OLOMU KINGDOM and an Old Boy of the school, I want to STRONGLY BUT HUMBLY APPEAL to His Majesty, the OHWORODE of OLOMU to kindly allow the will of the people to prevail in this Tussle.
- Finally, if a school must be named after him, thank God, His Excellence, the Gov has proposed building TECHNICAL COLLEGES across DELTA STATE, then one should be built in Olomu and be named OGBON TECHNICAL COLLEGE from the scratch. I think that could be a better alternative or any other college built and named after him if the people insistently object to the renaming of the already existing one.
PEACE WE NEED IN OLOMU KINGDOM.
