The former acting governor of Delta
State and member representing Ika North East in the Delta State House of
Assembly, Rt. Hon. Prince Sam Obi has commended the leadership of Onu Ika
Nigeria, for the giant steps it is taking towards the development of Ika land.
Rt. Hon. Obi, who spoke through his aide, Mr. George Kuhodu gave the
commendation during the 15th Ogwa Ika held on Saturday, 17th August, 2013 at
Ika National Hall, Agbor.
He said the apex Ika group has since
it was founded been contributing greatly towards the development of Ika land,
an effort which according to him is worthy of commendation.
the same vein, the one time Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly said Ika
people should learn how to appreciate their sons and daughters, who have
contributed and are still contributing to the development of Ika land, pointing
out that when people are commended for what they have done they will be encouraged
to do more.
noted “our duty as law makers is not to award or execute contracts but to
ensure that laws which will better the lives of Deltans are made. We could
recall the many capital projects that were executed at the short period I was
in the office as the acting governor of Delta State.
In a related development, Mr. Kuhodu,
who described Rt. Hon. Sam Obi as a man of the people said the lawmaker has
been sponsoring the medical bills of the
inmates of Hope in God Foundation, Umunede, each costing not less than 750,
000. He said “when the right time comes for us to give our score card, we will
give it. But all we are pleading is that Ika people should learn how to
appreciate their children who have affected lives and also contributed to development
rather than limiting it to only one person.”
