President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with the Olu of Warri, all chiefs of the kingdom, family and friends of the Rone family, over the passage of Chief S.S Rone, Ogienoyibo, the Obazuaye of Warri and longest-serving chief.
In a statement signed by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, to Buhari, he appreciated the grace of God on the departed, which according to him, saw Rone serve four monarchs as a high-ranking chief and helping to maintain peace, amity and development in Warri and environs.
President Buhari commended the life of service lived by Chief Rone to the younger generation and urged his family and children to ensure that his good works are preserved and his memories evergreen.
Chief Rone, who died Monday, aged 86, left behind a worthy reputation, which will remain inspiring, according to Buhari.
The President wished the departed eternal rest and comfort for those mourning him.
