Olorogun Emmanuel Erezih popularly known as Okpomo, Chairman/Founder of Erezih Charity Foundation and Converner of Okpomo Political Advancement Group, has advocated the need for youths to be at the forefront of peace building and development in Emevor kingdom.
Olorogun Erezih stated this midweek, when he visited the Regent of Emevor Kingdom, HRM John-Holt Ologho, saying, “Youths of Emevor should work in synergy with the traditional ruler in restoring peace and development in the kingdom.”
According to Olorogun Erezih; “Your Royal Majesty, I must commend your leadership prowess in sustaining peace and development in Emevor kingdom since you ascend the throne of your forebears. Though there are surmountable challenges that are still bedeviling Emevor kingdom which can be tackled through synergy.”
“If we must grow and develop Emevor to the kingdom we want for our generation, then we must canvass for peace and peace is achievable when our youths work in synergy with you your Majesty.”
“As youths, some of us are susceptible to manipulations aimed at violent and destabilizing ends that present a security challenge and inhibit growth and development. But we are also a powerful tool for change, peace and unity. ”
“Therefore we must work towards what unites us, rather than that which divides us. We mustn’t fall for the evil machinations of the enemies of Emevor Kingdom, those who seek to use us to destroy our kingdom and future for their selfish ends.
“We must remain resolute and committed to building and promoting peace and unity in our beloved fatherland (Emevor kingdom) because we are one great people with common goal. United we stand, divided we fall”.
