Utuama Tasks Social Groups On Harnessing Peace

BY SAM DUVWODE
Delta State Deputy Governor, Prof. Amos Utuama, SAN, has advised socio-cultural organisations in the state to have sufficient social functions in order to enhance peace and unity.
Prof. Utuama gave the advice at the Thanksgiving Service/Luncheon party organised by the Isoko Development Union (IDU), at Igbide, Isoko South Local Government Area.
The state deputy governor noted that insufficient social functions have continued to affect the unity of the people. “I think we do not have time to celebrate ourselves sufficiently, we do not create enough platform for us as a people to socialise. And we only socialise in wrong places, hence we are finding it difficult to have the desired unity among ourselves”, Prof. Utuama stated.
Prof. Utuama, who commended the President General of Isoko Development Union, IDU, Major General Paul Omo, OFR. and his executive for the initiative of the luncheon party, urged them not to relent as this will continue to promote peace and unity in Isoko nation.
According to him, “I want to encourage you, do not give up, the more of this social functions we have, the more unity and understanding we are going to have as a people, as a state and as a nation”.
He commended the Isoko nation for the support they have given to the state government over the years and urge them to continue to support the PDP controlled government in the state.
Prof. Utuama described General Omo as an Officer of the Federal Republic of Nigeria who has served more meritoriously in various capacities in the army and in government, noting that being President of IDU is a wise choice by the Isoko nation.
Major General Paul Omo, rtd, in his remark, noted the IDU is a socio-cultural organisation geared towards enhancing the peace, unity and development of the Isoko nation.
He used the occasion to call on all Isoko sons and daughters in the state to remain united and peaceful in their conduct, adding that IDU will continue to hold its AGM/Thanksgiving and Luncheon and brainstorm on issues affecting the Isoko nation in order to proffer positive solution.
