Delta State Governor, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, has called on the people of Idumuje-Uno community to support their monarch with their prayers and advice to ensure accelerated and people oriented development in the community.
Represented by the Deputy Governor, Prof Amos Utuama, SAN, the governor made the call at Idumuje-Uno in Aniocha North Local Government Area during the official presentation of Staff of Office to the His Royal Majesty, Charles Chukwunwike Anyasi III, the Obi of Idumuje-Uno, who took the mantle of leadership from his late father, Obi James Ikechukwu Anyasi II who joined his ancestors in 2013.
While congratulating the new Obi, Uduaghan prayed that the installation of the new monarch would be the beginning of a new era and a continuation of the peace and progress-minded march in the history of the Idumuje-Uno.
On the community’s request for teachers in their school and access road, the governor said there were enough qualified teachers in the state but that the equitable distribution and sometimes refusal of some teachers to report to rural schools are the causes of such problems. He however promised to facilitate posting of teachers to the community.
He used the occasion to commend the roles of traditional rulers in the state and disclosed that the state government has planned a workshop for traditional rulers in the state and urged them to take the advantage of the workshop to improve themselves.
In his speech at the occasion, the Chairman, Transition Committee, Aniocha North Local Government, Hon. Young Sunday Chukwuedo, called on royal fathers to relentlessly uphold the principles of peace, justice and fairness in the discharge of their duties to the people.
Hon. Chukwuedo commended the administration of Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan, whom he said, has continued to accord the welfare of traditional rulers the due attention it deserves.
Earlier in his welcome address, the President-General of Idumuje Patriotic Union of Nigeria (IPUN), Chief Jude Onwochei, had requested for the posting of teachers to their school and the provision of access roads to connect the community with the outside world.
Chief Onwochei commended the state government for the presentation of staff of office to their monarch. The occasion attracted sons and daughters of Idumuje-Uno, traditional rulers and well wishers of Idumuje-Uno community.
