Emuhu Monarch Receives Commendation For Developmental Strides

BY JOSHUA ERUBAMI
THE National Chairman of Emuhu Progressive Union (EPU), Mr. Sunday Azikeh has commended the Monarch of Emuhu, HRH Kenneth Onyemaechi, the Eze of Emuhu Kingdom in Ika South Local Government Area of Delta State, for his relentless efforts in coordinating his subjects towards the development of the kingdom.
Mr. Azikel said this while addressing members of the community in their Eko Meeting Forum. He described the monarch as a lover of development, peace and unity, saying that he is endowed with the spirit of maintenance culture.
Similarly, the chairman believed that the emergence of Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, in the 2015 gubernatorial poll, is a redeemer era which will bring the dream of Deltans to reality, adding that the agenda of the Governor, which is encapsulated in the SMART acronym, is a welcome development as it is geared toward bringing democratic dividends to the grassroots.
Azikiel, who alleged that the kingdom is being marginalized and overshadowed by other bigger ones, appealed to the Delta State Government to give Emuhu a chance of state character, stressing that Emuhu kingdom is an entity of its own which is ruled by an Eze.
On his part, the Base Chairman of the Emuhu Progressive Union, Mr. Peter Yong noted that although Okowa emerged from the spring board of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), he has the obligation of protecting the collective interest of all Deltans irrespective of their political, religious, tribal and local differences.
While commending the effort of the Eze of Emuhu kingdom, Yong called on all indigenes of the kingdom to support his efforts of building the kingdom. He also appealed to the government to help construct some link roads in the community, especially the major roads that cut across the kingdom, observing that lack of budgetary provision for maintenance increases infrastructural decay. He disclosed that the only market in the community, which served as a source of revenue to the community and the Local Government, has been gut by fire.
