After a period of confinement to commune with his ancestors, Hon. (Chief) Chiedu Onwuadiamu finally appeared in public on Friday, July 1, following the final rites of his installation as the Okwabani of Aboh-Ogwashi by the Obi of Ogwashi-Uku, Aniocha South Local Government Area of Delta State, HRM, Chukuka Okonjo 1.
His appearance culminated in a rousing reception which drew many of his subjects, political and business associates as they came out to herald the arrival of the new Okwabani.
By his installation as the Okwabani, he stepped into his father’s shoes although the position is not hereditary for the highest consideration in appointing the Okwabani or the eye of the Obi of Ogwashi-Uku in any of the satellite villages is a sound knowledge and understanding of the terrain, loyalty to the Obi and being on ground to secure the outpost established to repel external aggression by Adaigbo, the founder of Ogwashi-Uku.
It is therefore a position of trust and only a few are considered. His elegant dance steps as he turned out in his white attire attested to his joy while guests were treated to food and drinks.
Hon. Onwuadiamu, a seasoned businessman, cherishes being close to nature, hence, the decision to live in Aboh-Ogwashi, an agrarian community along the Asaba/Ughelli expressway.
Chief Lawrence Okolobi, who represented of the Obi and the Ozoma of Ogwashi-Uku, was full of praises for the new Okwabani, as Hon.  Onwuadiamu said his installation would be an opportunity to promote love, peace and understanding among the people and his community with neighbouring communities
