“We will also be having the Urhobo social club homecoming. Where members of the club worldwide will come together at home and socialize with one another. The Urhobo unite where Urhobo Social Club Lagos will partner with their other brother unions like UPU to push the Urhobo gospel is also something we should be looking forward to, as well as the Mukoro Mowoe memorial lecture series which we are going to have each year, one for 2020 and another in 2021.
“The Urhobo scholarship programme which has been long forgotten is going to be coming back because if not for scholarships, a lot of us will not have gone to universities in Nigeria and abroad, so we will be bringing back the David Ejoor Petroleum scholarship for deserving Urhobo children and getting well to do Urhobo people in the community and big establishments to sponsor the cause.

“And lastly will build our own Urhobo house project. A place where we can hold our activities and even rent out to other people to hold their cultural events. The space has already been bought and fenced, but we still have a lot of work to do, for it to be ready. So we are going to need everybody to join hands and make all these activities and project a success.”
Chairman board of Trustee, Chief Johnson Barovbe, gave a closing speech, thanking everybody for honoring the august invitation and closed the event by inviting Chief Samson Okwesa to say the closing prayer, which brought the event to an end.
