The President Generals of Ukwuani Communities in Delta state have been admonished to be agents of development in their areas.
This appeal was made by the Executive Director, Social Services Development on the board of the Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (DESOPADEC), Hon Ochor Chris Ochor, during a meeting with the President Generals of the Communities comprising Ukwuani Local Government Area of Delta state.
Hon Ochor, who visited the group during their meeting recently held in Obiaruku, tasked members on need to help ensure that the process of effective development was enshrined in their activities.
Making reference to the recent communal crises that affected some communities in the area, he advocated that the group should be involved collectively in any action that would lead to the resolution of crises in the future in the LGA, even as he advised that there should be synergy between the leadership of the body and the Youth leaders in the various clans, to effectively curtail potential causes of unrest.
On the general development of Ukwuani communities, Ochor tasked the group on effective engagement with those in position, stressing the need for community leaders to constantly call on their representatives and intimate them on the needs of the people.
Reacting on behalf of the group, the secretary, Mr Timothy Umukoro, affirmed the mandate of the body to ensure continuous unity, peace and development in the entire Ukwuani LGA.
