It was pomp and pageantry enmeshed in culture at the ancient Ubulu-Uku Kingdom, when the Prime Minister (Onishe), Chief Emma Ejiofor marked his eight year on the stool.

The event which took place at the Onishe’s palace in Ubulu-Uku and witnessed a huge turn-out of personalities from across Nigeria and the Diaspora, turned out to be a gathering of dignitaries drawn from the traditional institution, considering the attendance of Royal Fathers.

Elated Chief Emma Ejiofor, who was dressed in white Royal regalia, described the anniversary as a means to further lift the cultural heritage of Ubulu-Uku Kingdom and enhance unity among the people.
