THE traditional ruler of Ughelli kingdom, HRM Dr. W.O Ojakovo (JP) Oharisi III has described the appointment of DESOPADEC Project Director, John Nani and the Commissioner on the board of DESOPADEC, Hon.

The monarch made this statement while commending Gov Okowa for his wisdom in appointing Hon. John Nani as the Project Director and Hon. Kent Akigho Okiemute as commissioner in-charge of Urhobo mandate areas, saying their appointments would make the Urhobo Nation proud as it strives to achieve more development.
He therefore thanked Gov Okowa for the appointments and assured him of the continued support of Urhobo Nation for his administration and all his political ambition after his second tenure.
The monarch called on the governor to crown all the appointments with support for Urhobo when it is time to take their turn at the Government House Asaba come 2023 as he promised during his electioneering campaign.
The Ovie of Ughelli Kingdom urged the governor to prevail on all stakeholders to respect the gentleman agreement between the three senatorial districts of Delta State on the rotation of Governorship position in the interest of peace and development.
While congratulating the new Project Director, John Nani and Hon. Kent Akigho Okiemute, the Commissioner in-charge of Urhobo mandate areas, the monarch urged them to complement the efforts of Governor Okowa in achieving development of Urhoboland by attracting additional development projects, especially in Ughelli Area of Upper Agbarho, Uloho Avenue, Iwhrekpokpor Ekredjebo and other areas that need more roads and drainages to avert floods in Ughelli North and Ethiope East Local Government Areas.
The traditional ruler therefore reminded the newly appointed Urhobo sons on the board of DESOPADEC that to whom much is given, much is also expected, saying good works done attracts more responsibility as promotion, assuring them of his Royal support if the need arises; saying the happiness of the people of his kingdom is his own joy and appealed to them to try as much as possible to attract more projects to Ughelli Kingdom.
