Idoma traditional council to honour Olofu June 29

Foremost humanitarian and former Commissioner for Finance in Benue state, Hon. David Olofu, will on Saturday be conferred with a chieftaincy title in Otukpo.

This was contained in a letter of notification from the Idoma Area Tradtional Council, signed by HRM, Agaba’Idu, Elias Odogbo John, CON, Och’Idoma V, on behalf of the council.

The paramount ruler said the great philanthropist was nominated from his immediate chiefdom of Apa LGA of Benue state, owing to his long- standing in providing for his people and championing the cause of security and safety of his people.

“Please refer to the letter dated 27th May, 2024, nominating you to be conferred with chieftaincy title in Idoma Kingdom. 

“Your nomination is at the instance of your immediate intermediary council, which has adjudged you to have contributed excellently to the development of your communities and Idoma kingdom as a whole. 

“Therefore, your conferment of this prestigious title is free and it is in recognition of what you meant for the Idoma Kingdom.

“The date of conferment is 29th June, 2024, at the Och’Idoma Council’s Hall by 10am”, the letter reads in part.

Agaba’Idu, however, encouraged Hon. Olofu to “organise your reception in any way that you want,” after the conferment ceremony.

Hon. Olofu, the immediate past Commissioner of Finance in Benue state was also the chairman of Forum of State Commissioners for Finance of Nigeria, where he served his two tenures, providing quality leadership to the forum and proferring usable economic guidance to the sub-national and Federal Government of Nigeria.
