Our Ladies School, Effurun, Warri now Our Ladies School, Effurun, Wado City.
Robinson Shopping Plaza, Effurun, Warri renamed to Robinson Shopping Plaza, Effurun, Wado City.
While a name may sound innocuous, it represents an individual’s identity. It not only identifies a person, a place, or an object; it also resonates with the bearer. In our climate, each name carries a distinct vibration that is spiritually potent.
Countries all over the world have changed their names to reflect their historical origins and to demonstrate their identity.
Upper Volta… Burkina Faso
Dahomey….. Benin Republic
Gold Coast….. Ghana
Now let’s come home…
Iluelogbo …. Oweh Logbo
These names are with us today.
People are known to even change their names to reflect their current status… Onajite becomes Enajite, ….. Ediri becomes Ufuoma
Eghenkefe becoming Aghwaritefe…
So when people are no longer comfortable with WARRI and now advocate for a change, it is a well thought out process for change is the only permanent thing.
WADO as a city will remove the ambiguity and give the owners THEIR TRUE IDENTITY.”
“Did you know that the new name for our territories, Wado City, formerly known as Warri, is gaining tremendous popularity since the majority of Urhobos are so intrigued by it?
When some Nigerians proposed declaring Lagos State a no-land man’s in the past, Awolowo rallied Yorubas and declared that Lagos would be declared a no-land man’s over his dead body because Lagos gives the Yoruba race relevance.
However, the same Awolowo left his Yoruba homeland of approximately 1000 kilometres to rename the Olu of Itsekiri, the Throne of his first cousins, to the Olu of Warri after the White man who founded the city in Urhobo land refused to name their Olu as the Olu of Warri because Urhobo owns the land known as Warri.
Awolowo could not stand up to Lagos being declared a no man’s land to commit similar crimes in other territories.
Awolowo didn’t want to lose his identity, but he desired that others do. We must rename Warri, as Wado City has established itself.
We are capable of accomplishing this. We don’t even require a government or political leaders. With a billboard in the heart of Warri, it is accomplished, and every other anomaly in our territories falls into place easily.
We’re already there.
Wado City, our City formerly known as Warri is a reality.
