  2. It was nice for me visiting this site today. As an Urhobo man, I appreciated the great effort of the UPU. However, I have some ideas to sell to the Urhobo Nation for effective growth, development, peace, unity, stability and most especially continuous progress of the Urhobo Clans thereby creating and establishing a stronger bond between all Urhobo Communities. I am making moves to send my ideas soon.
