An Urhobo pressure group in Delta State, the Urhobo Youth Employment Initiative, UYEI, has commended the Chairman of Warri South Local Government Area, Comrade Michael Tidi, and his counterpart in Uvwie, Comrade Ransom Onoyake, for hitting the ground running and immediately swinging into action to restore the twin cities of Effurun-Warri to their lost glory in line with the SMART Agenda of the Governor Ifeanyi Okowa administration.”
In a statement made available to newsmen, in Effurun, the group through its Convener, Comrade Francis Onokpasa, while bemoaning what it described as the rot and economic slump our beloved twin cities of Effurun-Warri have been suffering for quite some time now, lauded early steps being taken by both chairmen to sanitise the physical environment of Effurun-Warri while making brisk efforts to upgrade the security profile of what is our own megacity here in Delta State.
While urging the chairmen to pool ideas and resources together, the group noted their “vigorous and energetic disposition to governance,” describing them “as young performers representing positive role models for the youths.”
According to the group, “we find in Comrades Onoyake and Tidi, promising young leaders who have wisely keyed into the laudable governmental philosophy of the Okowa administration which places a premium on people oriented projects and programs of direct relevance to the needs of all segments of the society.”
Lamenting the current economic profile of Effurun-Warri, the group enjoined the chairmen to continuously think out of the box on creative and feasible strategies for boosting economic activities in the twin cities, while endeavoring to reignite the world-famous nightlife of Effurun-Warri.
While assuring both chairmen of the unflagging support of Urhobo youths in delivering on their mandates, the group urged them to be especially mindful of carrying the youths along in their administration just as Governor Okowa has been doing with his most commendable youth empowerment and entrepreneurship programs.
