The newly Inaugurated Trust Chairman of Ifiekporo Community in Warri South Local Government Area of Delta State, Mr. Peter Ede, has assured indigenes of the community that job opportunities due to them, “shall not be taken out.”

                                              

Mr. Peter Ede, who was the immediate past Secretary-General of Ifiekporo Community Trust Executive, under the Chairmanship of Mr. Clifton Edema, gave the assurance, while delivering his inaugural speech Saturday July 25 at Prince Ejoki Hall, Ifiekporo in Warri, during the swearing-in ceremony of the New Trust Executive of Ifiekporo.

 

 

While appreciating the Ifiekporo Elders’ Council for their fatherly role towards the emergence of the new executive, Ede promised to carry all aggrieved persons along, “because the task of developing our beloved community belongs to all of us.”

 

He outlined the agenda of his leadership to include peace and continuity, smooth relationship with the other organs of Ifiekporo leadership structure, cordial relationship with neighbouring towns, ensuring that the companies operating in Ifiekporo respect and give its indigenes what they deserve as host community as well as cooperate with government in ensuring that the community is welcoming to investors and development.

 

While also assuring that his administration will preserve the Itsekiri cultural heritage, Ede noted: “We are a very strategic community in Warri kingdom. Our community image will be well portrayed to the outside world. To potential investors, we plead with you to continue your plans to site your businesses in our land. We shall give you all the cooperation you need, because more than ever before, Ifiekporo Community is open for business.”
