The President-General of Ohuhu Welfare Union, High Chief Obi Aguocha has lamented the increasing social vices among youths in Ohuhu land, which have been worsened by poverty and urged parents to help inculcate high moral values on their wards to stem the tide.
This was contained in the PG Christmas and New Message to Ohuhu people issued on the December 25 and made available to the NewsCritic online. Aguocha stated that his team is desirous to deliver on the mandate given to them, while seeking the support of every Ohuhu indigene in the journey to rewrite the history of Ohuhu land.
Said he: “On behalf of the Central Executive Council, Traditional Rulers, Elders Council and Leaders, we welcome all Ohuhu indigenes, friends and relations home to the Christmas and New Year celebrations.
“It is our prayer that the peace, prosperity and victories which are embedded in the redemption package delivered to mankind through the birth of Jesus Christ will manifest in the life of every one of us now and throughout the new year.
“We bless God for journey mercies granted all of us and pray that the same grace will adorn the journeys of our loved ones who are still on their way home. May your stay in Ohuhu land throughout the holidays be a memorable one in Jesus name.
“As you may already know, Ohuhu Welfare Union is the umbrella body encapsulating all unions and administrative bodies in our clan. A new executive has just assumed office with effect from the 11th of November, 2019 with a mandate to ensure a new narrative of peace and prosperity in Ohuhu land.
“While I and my executive team are desirous to deliver on these expectations, let me use the opportunity of our home coming to seek the full support and assistance of every Ohuhu indigene in the journey to change our narrative and history. “Weta aka nye aka ka aka ji eto ogologo.”
“Today our land is confronted with increasing moral decay within our family systems and youth. This is manifesting in the worrisome out of school and school drop-out statistics, illicit drug use and abuse, and even cultism in our communities. This is worsened by growing poverty indices and choking infrastructural deficit within Ohuhu land.
“We want to use this opportunity to appeal to our parents and guardians to reinvent those high moral values that made Ohuhu land an exemplary destination in the past. On our part, we will continue to relentlessly engage with government and all agencies of State that can help advance the pace and development of Ohuhu land.
“We enjoin our different Autonomous Communities, Traditional Rulers, Chiefs, Community President Generals and leaders to work together in synergy and harmony for the peace and prosperity of their communities. “Unu cheta kwa na eji ko aka nyuo mamiri ya gba ufufu.”
We shall soon be engaging on our roadmap to restoring the glory of Ohuhu land and we hope to continue to count on your cooperation.
We wish you all a merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year.
