The Ugep Council of Chiefs, (the Binahs) early this morning, Friday selected a 57 years old serving Master Warrant Officer in the Nigerian Army, Ofem Ubana, as the new Obol Lopon of Ugep.

Ofem Ubana who is still the Chief Clerk, Amphibious Training School, ATS Calabar told CrossRiverWatch that with his elevation, he has put in his papers for retirement from the Nigerian Army.

In a telephone chat, the new monarch said, “I feel humbled for the fact that there are so many young men in Ugep but I was selected. It’s a responsibility that I will discharge to the best of my abilities and I am praying that my people will give me all the cooperation that I need to lead them.”

While eulogizing his predecessor, Obol Ubi Ujong Inah, he said the late monarch, “left very big shoes. He has elevated our royalty to a very high standard. All I can do is ask God to help me to lead my people from where he stopped. It will take time but God will help me.”

Speaking about his plans for his new assignment, he said “You know there are pockets of some boys who say they are cultists in Ugep. I am not saying that we will completely eliminate them but I will seek ways and avenues of discussing and dialoguing with them to ensure that there is permanent peace in Ugep. There is a lot of insecurity and plenty of people are leaving in fear and we will work hard to see that peace and stability is restored to our community.

He asked for cooperation from his subjects like they gave to the late king and assured them that “we will all collectively work together to achieve peace and prosperity for our land.”
