The Amayanabo of Kirike stated that as King, one of his statutory responsibilities is to install and certify Chiefs in his Kingdom and not to Coronate a King of any sort as it is the responsibility of the Ado Royal House to select the Amayanabo of Okrika and the Egwemes install the Amayanabo.

He noted that Tam-George Dokube VII has been duly installed and certified as the Chief of Dokube Royal War Canoe House in Kirike Kingdom and not as Amayanabo of Okrika.

The highlight of the event was the presentation and cutting of the Victory Cake which symbolizes the Victory of Ogube and his Chiefs in a Judgement at the Port Harcourt High Court that declared the Okrika Divisional Council of Chiefs as an illegal Chiefs Body or Council in Okrika Local Government Area.
