OUR REPORTER

Organizers of the forthcoming Agbaja Peoples Summit in Enugu State have continued to receive commendations from people of the area at home and abroad. They say the Summit billed for next week is a commendable effort at uniting people of the old kingdom and harnessing its economic potentials.

In one of the commendation letters received in the past week, the United Nations Resident Coordinator and Representatives of the United Nations Secretary-General to Rwanda, Dr. Ozonnia Ojielo said a discussion on the development potentials of Agbaja land was long overdue given the multiple human and natural resources that abound in the area.

In a letter addressed to the Chairman of the Planning Committee Mr. Ugochukwu Chime, Ojielo commended the Planning Committee Chairman as well as the various Committees for their selfless service.

He tasked the present crop of political office aspirants in Agbaja land, saying “the outcome documents and recommendations from the investment summit should constitute the ‘marching order for all elected leaders from Agbaja land to which we should hold them accountable when they come back seeking votes for the next election”. 

He noted that tremendous opportunities exist for exploiting those potentials in Agbaja land for transformation of the lives of our people. 

He also had words of gratitude for Agbaja Leaders of Thought led by Prof. Chinedu Nebo for initiating the Summit at this auspicious time, and commended former Governor Sullivan Chime who will Chair the Summit.

Ojielo expressed the hope that such a dialogue for the development of Agbaja will be sustained.  “I would hope that our engagement doesn’t end with the organization of this Summit but that every year, we should convene such dialogues with all our elected representatives to check in on how they are implementing the outcomes and recommendations…as well as to mobilize support for their efforts towards their implementation”.
