FORMER governor of Delta State, Chief James Ibori, who recently returned from the United Kingdom, recently played host to the Executive Committee of the Urhobo Progress Union, UPU, the ruling umbrella body of the Urhobo people both at home and in diaspora. The union came to felicitate with him on his successful return to the country.
Speaking with newsmen in Oghara, the President-General of UPU Chief Joe Omene said, “we came to rejoice with our illustrious son, Chief James Ibori over his successful return to his homeland. We also discussed some important issues with him which we will not make public. I can say that our meeting with him went well.
And in no time, we shall, in conjunction with the clergy class in Urhobo land, reconcile those who were deemed to have offended him in one way or the other and those who felt offended by his actions or inactions so that all of us can move on happily again. He is an illustrious son of Urhobo, we have missed him for too long.” Omene said.
