In London for most of yesterday, His Majesty, Ogiame Atuwatse III and Olori Atuwatse III were part of the activities commemorating the 2023 Service of Celebration of the Commonwealth Day. With other world leaders, their convergence on the UK capital was towards ‘Forging a sustainable and peaceful common future’.At the time of forming the organisation, fewer nations who are now sovereign members of the Commonwealth were British colonies and with the strides that earlier members took towards a world of common good, the organisation became more attractive to even non-colony countries.This edition of the meeting was the first held since the exit of Her late Majesty Elizabeth II and under the leadership of His Majesty King Charles III. The theme for 2023 is therefore apt.The world is facing new challenges of the environment, transition from fossil fuel, unjust wars, hunger, poverty, population expansion, homelessness, unemployment, to mention a few. The Commonwealth is steadfast at seizing every opportunity to improve on the world that we live in and that which we shall leave behind for the generations to come.May the cherished and celebrated positive values that have kept the Commonwealth resonate among all the nations and peoples of the world. #OluofWarri
