Have Your Say
  1. I want to congratulate the organizers of this SUMMIT. It is long overdue. I hope it will not be another talk shop, but that its outcome/output will translate into real investments and economic projects that will create jobs, wealth, improved livelihoods and and enhanced SECURITY.

  2. Please whoever is the editor of this post should as a matter of urgency use another map. It would be misleading to add “Isoko” on that map. There are a lot of maps showing Urhobo territories on Google. The editor of this piece should take a minute to find them out and remove this said map from the post. So the reading public would not be given a false representation. Thank you.
