Urhobo youths in South Africa under the aegis of Urhobos in the Diaspora have commended the Obarisi Ovie Omo-Agege led leadership of the Urhobo Political Congress (UPC) for its leadership role it is playing in positioning the Urhobo nation in the main stream of Delta State politics.
In a communiqué issued by the group, rising from its first general meeting for the year, hosted by the South Africa chapter, dated 6th February, 2014 signed by the President, Prince Justin Uloho and Mobilization Director, Prince Joseph Adu and made available to newsmen, the group stated that, it received with great joy the news of the planned revitalization of the Delta Steel Company (DSC) by UPC.
“This move by UPC shows that the group is not just political, but has the interest of the Urhobo future at heart.
“The revitalization of DSC cannot be over-emphasized, as when this is done, it would go a long way in curbing the level of unemployment currently being witnessed in not just Delta Central alone, but the entire State,” the statement added.
In a chat with Uloho, while commending the leadership drive of the Urhobo Progress Union (UPU), he stressed the need for the establishment of a UPU chapter in South Africa saying, “The need for a South Africa chapter of UPU is long overdue.
“Just like Urhobos in the UK, Canada, USA etc, we Urhobos in South Africa feel the need to make our contribution to the international and home body of UPU, the sooner this is done, the better for us,” he stated.
