This is done to make community leadership productive and impacutful on the people’’.‘’Therefore, we have in the Kala-Ogoloma Structure, the Royal Arm, the Chancellors and the Secretaries.

This is our own innovation to strengthen the traditional institution in a cosmopolitan city like Port Harcourt, as well as the state’’
