The remark was given by the monarchy in a chat with newsmen at the grand finale of the Amasiekumor festival in Oporoza, Gbaramatu Kingdom of Delta State, Wednesday.

As claimed by him, “Clearly, festivals of diverse cultures and traditions like this are the only unifier of who we are, the unifier of our people, it is the essence of different diverse cultures and traditions across the entire country.

“It is things like this that the government and our political leaders should always focus on. It is clear, this is the only thing that can unite us.

“It is this annual festival that I came all the way from Ife Kingdom, in South West to attend the festival in Gbaramatu Kingdom.

“This is clearly a unifying factor, and so far so good, I have been enjoying myself and I have been comparing cultures all the way from Yoruba land to that of people of Ijaw Kingdom.

“We are one people, we are one and the same ancestral root, we should continue to support heritage, culture and tradition like this for our children to continue to know oo that our diversity is our strength, and the bond between all us as a nation.”
