The 21st day of August is here and Warri, the Itsekiri kingdom and the whole of Delta State is agog for the emergence of a new monarch, the coronation of Prince Utieyinoritsetsola Emiko as the new Olu of Warri.
Recall that the kingdom had announced Prince Tsola Emiko as the next Olu of Warri a few weeks ago and his coronation date. The day finally arrived and the 37 year-old has been crowned the 21st Olu of a long dynasty that stretches back hundreds of years. Prince Tsola Emiko holds a Master’s degree and majored in International Studies & Political Science at the Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, and also received M.Sc. in Management from the same University. He attended the Adesoye College Offa, Kwara State. Before that was the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Primary School Warri, Delta State which he attended.
Back home in Nigeria, Prince Tsola Emiko worked in several public and private sector enterprises, ostensibly gaining the foundational knowledge and experience of the vagaries of the Nigerian business environment for what would be his sojourn into the uncertain annals of life as a Nigerian entrepreneur.

The National Petroleum Investment Management Services (NAPIMS), Sahara Energy, Shell Nigeria Closed Pension Fund Administrator (SNCFPA) are some of the companies involved across the Nigerian Oil and Gas industry where Prince Emiko spent his early professional life and from where he made the bold venture into the conceptualization and establishment of his own businesses. Prince Emiko owns and operates Noble Energy Ltd, Corral Curators Ltd and is also on the board of a number of companies, including Ocean Marine Security Ltd, Gulf of Guinea Ltd, and Vessellink Nig Ltd.
