He said, ‘Oriuzor in Ezza North is my home. And no place like home. My home needs serious intervention. That community has been bedevilled by so many factors ranging from cultism to illiteracy and poverty, which is mostly attributed to the kind of leaders that have been in charge of the people’s affairs.’
‘Everything in Oriuzor revolves around some few certain ancient non-adventurous families or persons who are good people but need a total thinking faculty change.’
‘Oriuzor is a special community in the heart of Ezza Ezekuna and need not be lagging in community progress and development index as expected of such a community in the 21st century.’
‘Community of same equality in other parts of the State and country are busy embracing smart tech, AI, and other serious inventions of the time. Is our own different? Who did we offend? Where are we not getting it right?’
‘I want to encourage our traditional rulers, political and religious leaders in Oriuzor as a whole to do more to bring Oriuzor to the shining spot of the State of Ebonyi,’ he said.
