“We have continued to sensitize the youths on the danger of engaging themselves in cultism, armed robbery, kidnapping and to change their mindset on the narrative that school is a scam”.

Comrade Ikeke posited that unity was what the people needed to foster peace and progress that will promote the image of Ika nation, the state and the country at large. He commended the Agbor monarch for being an exemplary king whose reign has brought great blessings that has paved way for the development of the kingdom.
