He was given the titled by the Obong of Calabar, Edidem Ekpo Okon Abasi Otu V, a Treaty King and Grand Patriarch of the Efik Kingdom in calabar.
The president of Brazzaville Foundation, Mr. Johnnie Olivier was given the same title as a recognition of his contribution in global peace initiatives.
Accompanied to the palace of the Obong by the former governor of Cross River state, Donald Duke; the former presidential adviser, Senator Florence Ita-Giwa and the chief executive officer of Henshaw Capital Partners, Barbara Etim-James, the duo received certificates and sceptres for their titles.
Speaking during the grand ceremony, the Obong said, the conferment of the title is a reminder of the relationship between the Efik people and Britain.
He also urged the recipients to display their certificates and scepters to the English monarch.
Also speaking, Duke said:
“There is hardly any peace move in the continent of Africa that Olivier does not work behind the scene. He finds alternative solutions to conflict resolution. Played crucial role in South Africa during the apartheid era and was involved. Prince Franklin is his ally.”
The chairman of Obong of Calabar Executive Forum, Asuquo Ekpenyong, said the conferment is a reconnection of the relationship between the Efik and Britain.
“The event is significant. It is not too common to confer an Efik title on foreigners. It is a re-enactment of the relationship between the Efik, Britain and peace. What we have seen is going to bring to the Efik and its people a positive relationship. We have by this shown that we still recall the past,” Ekpenyong said.

Lagos tenant uses Landlord’s apartment to dupe house appliance vendors of N50 million
Hey peepz, I have a gist tho I don’t know if it’s true or not..But I will say it Sha. I was just walking on the street 2receive fresh air when I saw a couple. d man was telling his wife about an incident. I kukuma slowed down an walked behind them to hear d full gist.
It was more like a scam story. A certain man walked up to a Landlord in our area and requested to rent his apartment for 2 months, with the excuse that he was traveling to Canada and just came to Lagos for the Visa Processing.. They agreed on 150K.
The man paid and took ownership of the apartment.He then went out to Vendors in town and negotiated to buy expensive items on lease. With installment payment plans.. He was said to have collected home appliance worth N50,000,000 from various vendors.
He then took them all to the apartment one by one to build trust. At least once they know he lives there, they can easily come around and pack their stuffs if he defaults, these people didn’t know what would hit them was going to be deadlier than Tsunami.
As agreed with the Landlord, the man packed out even earlier than expected… Left with all the items, of which he had not finished the payment..and the Landlord was so happy to have struck a better deal He immediately rented out the apartment to another family.
One by one, the creditors began to come in and same story was relieved to them.. Some fainted, some threatened hell fire …. To cut the long story short, Baba Ijebu was arrested alongside the new tenant.. You know Naija now… #POLICE no wan hear wuen
They were only saved after a Landlord intervened. He is a legal practitioner and took up the case. But sincerely speaking. I wonder how some people feel at rest knowing fully well their victims would suffer. I guess it all centers on lack of conscience. This is bad #dojon
