By Richard Thomas, Ibadan

The Obong Iberedem of Akwa Ibom in Oyo State, His Royal Majesty, Edidem Etim Bassey Akanyak  (ARSM) has admonished Akwa Ibom youth leaders in the state to be good ambassadors and ensure they promote peaceful coexistence among others in line with the developmental agenda of governor  Seyi Makinde of Oyo state.

The monarch gave the admonition during the official installation of Akwa Ibom Youth Leaders who will oversee the activities of Akwa Ibom Youths in  their various communities in Ibadan.

The  programme was  held at the Obong  palace in Ibadan.

According to him,  what informed the decision of the palace   to install   the   youth  leaders  was  the need to have proper coordination  of the youths in various communities in the  state and for the progress of the state.

“There was the  need to have  formidable  youth forum in the state  which will have a voice  and maintain  peace and work along the developmental programme of the state government.

The Obong said plans are on to extend same gestures to other parts of the state like the  Oke Ogun, Oyo, Ibarapa zone  and other so as to complement the objectives of the forum.

Said he, “plans are on going  to ensure  the achievement of this laudable projects  across the state where  all Akwa Ibom youths will be represented  and be  involved in the developmental programmes of  of governor Makinde, but  we are  confronted with logistics and mobility.

“All these efforts are geared towards moving Oyo state forward, he added.”

“This development will help our youths in various  communities in the state to maintain law and order, and it will  help them  to contribute meaningfully to the socio-economic development of the state.”

The monarch said the Youth Forum under the leadership of Comrade Udoro Efre within a short time discovered some communities,  instituted youth structures by proper elections and the elected Leaders were installed for the coordination and progress of the people and the Akwa
Ibomites in the state.

The Youth leaders installed were Mr Akan Amos (Sango Community), Mr Godswill Idung (Yemetu), Mr Augustine Edem (Ikolaba), Mr Anietie  Etefia (Odo Ona), Mr Ifiok Okoh (Oke Ado), Mr Akan Dominic (Bodija/Ashi).

Also installed were the State Youth Officers, Comrade Udoro Efre, Leader;  Mr James Okoh, Deputy Leader; UtibeAbasi Umoren, Secretary and Mr Uduak Edoho as Treasurer.

As part of the event, the Managing Director of Isongeyen Global Investment Ltd, Mr Solomon David fulfilled his promise by donating a giant trophy for Cultural competition at Akwa Ibom Day celebration.
