Chief Ibude tasks illustrious indigenes on synergy with Monarch

Member of the Delta State Justice of the Peace Association and a respected community leader, Chief Sunday Solomon Ibude, the Mebuzosonme Dein of Agbor kingdom, and the Odozi Obodo of Ejime Aniogor, has called on all illustrious indigenes of Agbor kingdom, both at home and in the diaspora, to partner with their king, HRM, Dr Benjamin Ikenchuku Keagborekuzi 1, the Dein of Agbor, so as to effectively develop the kingdom.

Chief Ibude made the call while speaking to newsmen in Agbor over the weekend on the sustainable development of the agrarian community.He explained that the need for the call can not be overemphasized, pointing out that it will be unpatriotic for indigenes who are power brokers, and political giants not to show concern as to the moving forward of Agbor kingdom while positing that the betterment of Agbor should not be solely the responsibility of king.

He also said working in synergy with the monarch would boost the desired development of the kingdom with reference to both socio-economic development, insecurity and youth restiveness.According to him, “Agbor is our only home and its development is sacrosanct. We cannot leave it for outsiders to come and develop for us. Hence, we have to take responsibility.

“Agbor is blessed with lots of illustrious sons and daughters living outside the kingdom, but the questions are, how much have they done to encourage the development of the kingdom? How many companies have they established in Agbor to improve the economy of the land? or how well have they build the youths of the land? This, to me, does not strike balance.

“Agbor kingdom is for all of us and not divided by any group. We need to stop fighting ourselves, stop the eye-service practice and always see ourselves as one with equal right.

“We should stop blaming Governor Ifeanyi Okowa for doing more for his own immediate community (Owa) because we, the Agbor people also have the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr. Godwin Emefiele.“Agbor has both human and natural minerals resources which if properly harness, could take the kingdom to her Eldorado.”

Speaking further, Ibude called on the political class in Agbor to stop playing politics with sentiments, pointing out that their misgivings through partisanship or by way of ‘party is supreme’, was also dragging the kingdom behind.

He also called on the Nigerian Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. LEO Irabor, to help recruit willing Agbor youths into the military while supporting the unemployed in the land.

“Therefore, I am using this medium to appeal to all and sundry of Agbor kingdom to partner with our respected king who needs everybody to make Agbor kingdom a better place for all,” Chief Ibude added.He concluded with words of prayers for the land and for the king to live long on the seat of his ancestors.
