Youths of Oshimili South Local Government Area have been asked to support the present administration of the Council as it has all it takes to succeed in transforming the area beyond the expectation of the people.
The Council Chairman, Mr Obi Kelvin Ezenyili, gave the charge on Thursday when members of the Asaba Community Youth Council (ACYC) paid him a courtesy visit.
Ezenyili said Delta youths were lucky to have some of their own as Local Governnent Chairmen in the present dispensation, but that they needed their support to be able to do better than the older generation of leaders.
He thanked the Asaba Community Youth Council for the visit, which he said would engender a closer working relationship and promised to carry members of the body and indeed other youths in the area along in the administration of the Council.
The Local Governnent boss reiterated the determination of his administration to focus on security and youth empowerment, among other people – oriented programmes, in order to better the lot of the people.
Ezenyili disclosed that a Task Force on Environmental Sanitation and some Standing Committees, where youths were expected to play active roles, would soon be constituted by the Council and assured the visiting ACYC members that they would not be left out
Earlier, the President – General of the Asaba Community Youth Council, Ogbueshi Obodo Okediachi, said the visit was to congratulate the youthful Chairman on his election and successful assumption of office and to seek the partnership of the Council in the administration of the Local Governnent Area.
Okediachi said ACYC was a well organized group with various committees that could work with the Council to enhance the well – being of Oshimili South people and urged the Council Chairman to carry the youth body along in the scheme of things.
Also speaking, a member of the group, Dr. Victor Amuwah, said ACYC could do a lot to help the Local Governnent achieve set goals and urged the Chairman to involve the group in some of his programmes, particularly environmental sanitation and revenue generation.
The highlight of the visit was the presentation of a large portrait of the Council Chairman to him by ACYC
