Abuja—The umbrella body of all youth organisations in Ogbia Kingdom, the Ogbia Brotherhood Youth Council (OBYC) has congratulated, Dr. Samuel Ogbuku on his inauguration as Managing Director, Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
The group in a statement by its National President, Comr. Johnny S. Jonathan on Wednesday said Ogbia Kingdom (in Bayelsa State) is a peculiar kingdom that is specifically blessed with seasoned administrators at every point in time.
According to Jonathan, Ogbia Kingdom has always produced great men who have gone on to become great leaders in the country like the first civilian governor of old Rivers State, late Dr. Melford Obiene Okilo, former president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan and the newly sworn in Managing Director of the NDDC, Samuel Ogbuku.
He assured Ogbuku of the group’s support, encouragement, and mobilisation which he said is a major component of its founding resolutions.
He said, “The OBYC is a revered organisation that is built on the formidable legacies of our forefathers.
“We are committed to discharging our services in line with our resolutions to complement leaders and institutions of genuine ideas for them to succeed in their development drive in our Kingdom, Bayelsa, Niger Delta, and Nigeria in general.
“Chief Samuel Ogbuku can be rest assured that he will get the best of such support, mobilisation, and encouragement from the youths of the kingdom under my humble leadership.”
OBYC further prayed for Ogbuku, who is also the Deputy Paramount Ruler of Ayokoro Community in Ogbia Kingdom, to succeed in his new exalted role at the NDDC, adding that his appointment marks another progressive beginning in the history of the Kingdom.
