Although, I was hoping for a good time to do so as a man from Ayakoromo in NGBILEBIRI kingdom, there are actions to be taken by us to obtain good development. Thus, If we live as one we will have more development, if we put our heads together as a community, have collective sense of purpose, definitely our communities will achieve meaningful development.

“Human capital and infrastructural development are the major ingredients of development we need to commit to respective of our different political, economic and religious dispositions.

“We can through our various connections help to change the narrative of Ayakoromo Community.

“We are blessed with leaders and as leaders our role is to put a smile on the faces of our people.Therefore, we cannot pretend not to be unaware of the hunger, lack of employment of the youths, sexual abuses, lack of farming implements and fishing materials.

He pleaded; “Please let’s come together to improve on our various aspect of underdevelopment by aiming to build a better society” he stated.

Still speaking on the development of the community, Hon. Fake explained that; “Before now, we have Ayakoromo Urban Warri branch where we plan on how we can move our Community forward, it was a very formidable group”.
