Auchi honours minister
The Otaru of Auchi Kingdom, Alhaji H. Momoh, Ikelebe III, will on Saturday honour the Minister of State for Budget and National Planning, Prince Clem Ikanade Agba, with the title of Oduma (Lion) of the Kingdom.
This is contained in a statement issued, yesterday, by the Chairman of the Media and Publicity Sub-Committee, Mr. Victor Oshioke, for the conferment planning committee.
Prince Agba once served as Edo State commissioner in the administration of Adams Oshiomhole for seven and a half years during which he held the Environment and Public Utilities as well as Lands, Survey and Housing portfolios.
The statement further said the conferment of the Oduma title (whose last holder was the late Aret Adams, a former Group Managing Director of the NNPC) was in recognition of Agba’s contribution to the development of Edo State as a former commissioner, and his involvement in the progress of Nigeria as a minister.
