All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Candidate for the 2023 election, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, will today, Friday, November 25, 2022, storm Oporoza, the ancestral headquarters of Gbaramatu kingdom in Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta State.

At Oporoza, Tinubu will pay homage to the Pere of Gbaramatu kingdom, His Royal Majesty, Oboro-Gbaraun II, Aketekpe, Agadagba, according to a report by GbaramatuVoice.
“After the homage, Tinubu’s train will proceed to the home of High Chief Government Oweizide Ekpemupolo aka Tompolo, a former leader of the defund Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta (MEND), and global ambassador of the Ijaw Nation, where he is expected to hold a private meeting with him,” the portal said in a report published earlier today.
