As the season of year 2021 coming to end, no one in the beggining will have said these much accolades and recognitions on Barrister Kenneth Gbagi. But such is the fortune of this giver that his name is speaking volumes across the country.

Conferring the title, “Orugba”, meaning ‘performed completely”, King Whiskey, noted that the governorship aspirant was a man of distinction, who had distinguished himself in all the positions he had held, praying God to imbue him with more grace to excel in his ambition and the higher ones to come in the future.
He explained that he was using the opportunity God had given him as the custodian of the people’s culture and tradition to do what was right in the sight of God and people by honouring the business mogul who he described as a worthy son of Idjerhe Kingdom.
According to the King, “during my coronation, Gbagi brought a lot of gifts to me and he had done a lot of things for the development of Idjerhe Kingdom. As a renowned businessman and entrepreneur, his business facilities and structures have created employment for many in Delta and beyond.”
The King urged Olorogun Gbagi whose paternal grand mother and mother hailed from Idjerhe to continue with his good work for the Kingdom, adding that there was always a reward for every good deed.
Olorogun Gbagi in his speech thanked the monarch for the honour, saying that he accepted the title because of the long relationship he had with the palace and the people of the Kingdom.
He added that he was elated for the rare honour, saying that the honour would motivate him more in his drive to see a better Delta State and Nigeria in general.
An elder statesman, Olorogun Edwin Obofukoro, who accompanied Olorogun Gbagi to the ceremony, thanked the monarch and the good people of the Kingdom for honouring the governorship aspirant, adding that the gesture would encourage and motivate the youth to aim high and strive for excellence in their respective fields of endeavour.
“We thank you for bringing out an illustrious son of Nigeria for this honour because among his peers, he is a man of grace,” he stated.
Describing the governorship aspirant as an eagle, he stressed that “Gbagi, as a businessman, he is a navigator, an aerodynamic wonder and a well-known international entrepreneur. The Ovie did not make a mistake in selecting him for such a coveted title.”
“Ovie, you picked a man of vision, he is fearless and says the truth as it is. He cares for the youth and places ladder for people to climb to success’, he added.
