Buhari mourns Rone, longest-serving Chief of Warri Kingdom


President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the Olu of Warri, all chiefs of the Warri Kingdom, family and friends of the Rone family over the passage of Chief S.S Rone.


The late Rone Ogienoyibo, was the Obazuaye of Warri and the longest-serving chief of the kingdom.


The president, in a condolence message by his spokesman, Mr Femi Adesina, on Tuesday in Abuja, appreciated the grace of God on the departed, which saw him serving four monarchs as a high-ranking chief.


Buhari lauded the late chief for helping to maintain peace, amity and development in Warri and its environs.


He recommended the life of service lived by the chief to the younger generation, and urged his family and children to ensure that Rone’s good works were preserved and his memories evergreen.


According to the president, Rone, who died on Monday at the age of 86, left behind a worthy reputation, which would remain inspiring.


Buhari prayed that God would grant the departed an eternal rest and comfort those mourning him.
