40 YEARS OF REiGN HAS ENDED
40 Years of Reign has ended with the death of His Royal Majesty Eze Ekpeye Logbo, Robinson O Robinson.
One lesson we must all learn from him is to love our spouse. His and Her Majesty showed Ekpeye how marital love should be. They displayed their love openly to each other. Eze did not hide his wife; she sat by him and he sought her opinion. She was an integral part of his public life. This was unique and exemplary.
In an age where Ekpeye and Ekpeye marriages are declining; where divorce is increasing among Ekpeye marriages; and where disrespect and brokenness reign in many Ekpeye homes, Eze Robinson’s exemplary marriage was a legacy we can emulate.
What we witnessed in his marital life can be summarized as follows:
Husband LOVE your wife and wife RESPECT your husband, that it may be well with you! May God comfort his family at this difficult time of loss! May God bless Ekpeye!

NIGHT FALL IN EKPEYE.....
Alas! our right arm has been broken.
The great Iroko who shade us has withered away.
Akalaka has welcomed his legendary son from earth sojourn..
If you get there please help us tell Ubie,Igbuduya,Akoh and Upata that all is not well with us..
Tell our great ancestors that their children now feed from the blood of their own people..
Please tell them how our young lads has declared war on our once peaceful Ekpeye.
Tell them how human heads has turned to football.
Tell them that some of weathy sons and daughters has shut the door for their kinsmen...
Tell them that there is hatred among ourselves....
Tell them that Ogwu Ekpeye has been abandoned...
Tell them that we longer sleep with our two eyes close
Please help us beg them to touch to hearts of our youths...
To give peace a chance in Ekpeye..
RIP our imperial Majesty.... Idaye kaze Li Uyodhu
