WE SHOULD NOT ALLOW OUR PAST MISTAKES TO HINDER OUR DEVT- Eugene Uzum

The
Special Assistant to the Honourable Commissioner of Commerce and
Industry Barr Eugene Uzum has told the people of Ika nation to forget
about mistakes of the past and forge ahead. He maintained that
attempt to keep nursing grudges and complains on the past mistakes
of Ika political leaders might hinder the quick development of Ika
nation. Barr Uzum who gave the advice last weekend at Boji-Boji, Owa
during an enlarged interactive meeting of Koro Ika Movement, pointed
out that Ika nation, which is blessed with both human and natural
resources and with one of the highest population in the federation is
yet to have a representative in DESOPADEC or NDDC.

According
to Barr. Uzum, “in the quest of our struggle we might make
mistakes but let us quickly correct ourselves and move forward. Let
us forget about our personal interest and think of how to develop our
dear land of Ika. Our elders have tried in their own ways, it is time
we (Ika Youths) take over from where they stopped.” The youth
leader however called on all youths in Ika land to wake up from their
slumber and brace up with the challenge of grabbing what they know
rightly belong to them in government. He added that if Ika youths are
able to articulate their interest very well without fear or violence
the goal of building a better Ika will be achieved.

While
describing the Ika ethnic group as the most populated in Delta state,
Barr Uzum stated that there is need for every Ika man, woman, boy or
girl to love one another and avoid creating unnecessary sentiment
which according to him will not allow them as a group to achieve
anything for themselves.
