Mr Pepple, Sec Eruemukowharien community

The leadership and people of Eruemukowharien community in Ughelli North LGA have sent a congratulation message to one of their illustrious sons, Dr. Steve Oru on his appointment as Minister of Niger Delta Affairs.


Speaking on behalf of the community, Pa George Idogun, the community’s eldest man said the appointment of Dr. Steve Oru was well deserved.


He assured that Dr. Steve Oru will not disappoint the people of the Niger Delta region especially the oil producing communities because he has always been known for championing the crusade for change and social justice.


My son, your best is yet to come. God will continue to renew his promise of greater achievement to you. The songs of triumph shall always full your mouth and you shall continue to climb higher. We are proud to be associated with the joy of your success which has infected your family, your community, your LGA and the states you are representing as well as the entire country. May God continue to lead you and crown you with more success. You can count on our support.  Pa. George Idogun assured.


He used the opportunity to charge Dr. Steve Oru to be committed to the task of developing the Niger Delta region especially the oil producing communities in terms of infrastructure development.


The eldest man also appreciated President Goodluck Jonathan for the priviledge of appointing Oru and pledged to, in return, mobilise support for his re-election in 2015.
