Summit: Onowu Umueri Commends GULF

...tasks them to Organize National Conference of Umueri Elites
 
The Onowu Umueri, Chief Micheal Ekweonu has commended members of Greater Umueri Liberation Forum (GULF) and the Organizers of the Just concluded Umueri Development Summit which was tagged 'Kanyi kpaa Akpa' for organizing such gathering where every one is free to talk on the future of Umueri. He said that the events, which he said is first of its kind is norm in other places.
 
He made this assertion during his speech at the summit, whiich was held at St Marks Catholic Church Nneyi Umueri.He said that Gulf should not be  discouraged and destablized with nature of things in Umueri but be focused in its objectives.
 
"Our Problems in Umueri are bigger than our elders." he opined. "Gulf should organize national conference for umueri elites because there is no fomular. No roadmap for our collective development" He went further to say that the Umueri leadership lacks direction and Gulf by this bold step of organizing the summit, is now been looked up for direction.
 
He also eulogised Gulf on its choice of location, emphasising that the choice of Nneyi, been the eldest Village in Umueri is indeed in the right direction. He urged
that the next event should be held also in Nneyi as mark of respects for our customs and tradition from there it can move to other Villages.
