Patron of Isoko People’s Parliament, IPP Pastor (Engr.) Jonathan Ukhodiko has enjoined members of the group to always promote the development of Isoko nation.
Speaking at the political pressure group meeting, over the weekend at Otor-Igho, Ukhodiko said, “The essence of this meeting is for members to familiarize themselves with one another. I enjoin you all to use your various offices to promote the development of Isoko nation. Let us all stand firm to rebuild our beloved nation to be the envy of other ethnic groups.
“Imbibe the spirit of oneness and always acknowledge God whenever you are in the corridor of power, because God gives promotion and also decides your fate when you fail to acknowledge him. I encourage the youths amongst us to be productive and enterprising. whilst academic certificates are essential everyone must not depend on certificates attained from Higher institutions of learning before they cater for self and family, God can only bless the work of ones hands.”
He harped on the need for youths to learn a trade and promised to do his best in the area of sustainable empowerment so many will be gainfully engaged and employed.
On his part, Engr. Peter Odunwa, commended every member of the group for attending the meeting, noting that, the groups major aim is towards attracting human capital and infrastructural development, as well as ensuring fairness and equity.
