BY CHRISTIAN EZE
THE Akor of Oko Anala, His Royal Majesty, Obi Osite Onwuka has commented Barr. (Dr.) Alex Nduka Udorah and the entire Udorah family for the successful hosting of chief (MRS) Ijeayo Juliana Udorah Memorial Football Competition which ended on Monday, January 1, 2018 at Oko basic Secondary School, Oko Anala, Oshimili South Local Government Area, Delta State.
The traditional ruler observed that the Udorahs have been very much committed to the development of the community in diverse ways and commended their effort while urging others to equally do same.
The Monarch particularly thanked Dr. Alex Udorah for the hosting of the annual Oko Anala football tournament that is done during the Christmas Season. Noting that he sponsored the 2016 edition in honour of his late father, Chief Eward Udorah, who he said, contributed immensely to the development of the place and he also sponsored the 2017 edition in honour of his late mother, Chief Mrs. Ijeayo Udorah who was also known for her benevolence towards the people in the land.
The King used the opportunity to call on capable and well meaning sons and daughters of Oko to join hands in sponsoring the annual football event by indicating interest on when they would want to sponsor it.
He expects that they should have five years list of interested sponsors so that there will be no hitches or unnecessary tension and rush due to inadequate planning and added that such efforts will eliminate last minute rush which if not avoided, will make the work shoddy.
He therefore advised the people to indicate interest on the year each person would want to sponsor the football game early enough; noting that every contribution one makes to the development of his people attracts God’s blessings and encourage them to imbibe the spirit like Udorah has done
The traditional rulers of Atani Kingdom His Royal Majesty Igwe Azuka Ngondi, thanked the sponsor of the 2017 edition, Dr. Alex Udorah and disclosed that the football tournament has been in the community long ago. He said that they have been participating in the game in the 1960’s when they were much younger and were able to entertain with their football skills at festive periods. He enjoined the indigenes to take the sponsorship with all seriousness and encouraged them to keep the flag flying
