Oshasha urges Ughelli people in Diaspora to join hands in development of home
By Jon Egie
Ambassador Ovoke Oshasha, the MD of Voke Star Limited, Ughelli who is among other recipients of chietancy titles awarded by the Ovie of Ughelli, HRM Wilson Ojakovo, Oharisi 111, has called on Ughelli sons and daughters in the diaspora to come home and join hands in the development of Ughelli town.
Speaking with journalists shortly after he was conferred with the title of the Isio r’ Ovie Ughelli (Star of the Ughelli kingdom), Olorogun Oshasha urged sons and daughters of Ughelli in the Diaspora who do not have confidence in Ughelli to note that the dawn of a new era has opened in the kingdom and hence they should come back home enmasse and invest in the growth and development of the town, “because, there is no place like home” he stressed.
“God cre3ated us as Ughelli people, and that is not a mistake, so we must contribute our quota to the development of the town. You see, those other states and foreign countries people run to were developed by their natives so let us come and build Ughelli to make her a better place for others to envy and emulate”.
Commenting on the relevance of his chieftaincy title, Olorogun Oshasha said as the Star of Ughelli kingdom, he cannot be hidden and so, “Ughelli is going to shine henceforth, Ughelli is going to have global attention as this is the dawn of a new beginning”.
Appreciating God for being born into Ughelli, he prayed to fulfill his destiny for his nativity just as he handed over the economy of the town on to the hands of God for steering to greater height and reckoning within Nigeria and the world at large.
He described the Ughelli monarch as a very good man, “very nice, humble, a man with integrity, a king who desires the progress of his kingdom and appreciates his sons and daughters. I give him plus, plus, plus in everything” Olorogun Oshasha said.
