The beautiful Obioakpa community in Oruk Anam Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State came alive and was at a standstill on Saturday, the 12th of May 2018 to give honour to one of their own at the Coronation of His Royal Highness Obong Christian Benjamin Essien.

The colourful event which served as the crowning ceremony for HRH Obong Christian as the Clan Head of Obioakpa, was witnessed by eminent dignitaries from the length and breadth of the state and beyond.

In his welcome remarks, the Chairman of the occasion and the Paramount Ruler of Etim Ekpo Local Government Area – HRM Edidem (Prof) Amanam Udo informed guest of the uniqueness of the event and express gratitude to God for finding Obong Christian Essien worthy to occupy the revered seat as a Clan Head. He charged Obong Essien to endeavour to rule over his subject with the fear of God and to be aware, that at the end, all of us are also accountable to God almighty.

The coronation rite was jointly performed by the Paramount Ruler of Oruk Anam (HRM Edidem (Apost) Christopher Ntang), the Paramount Ruler of Ini Local Government Area (HRM Edidem (Dr) Udo Effiong Akpan) and the Paramount Ruler of Etim Ekpo.

In the course of the event, the Vice Chancellor of Akwa Ibom State University – Prof Eno Ibanga, was conferred with an Award of Excellence of his many strides and accomplishments in transforming the face of the state-owned varsity. Several other distinguished personalities were honoured with Traditional Chieftaincy titles as well as other awards.

The event witnessed a display of the rich cultural heritage of the Annang nation as various cultural groups took-turns to perform. In what many saw as heavenly blessing, nature also played more than a role in the event, when a somewhat torrential rain descended on the venue, just as the event was winding down and wrapping up.
