The statement said Okpe Union, the umbrella body uniting all communities of Okpe Kingdom, has “since its beginning in 1930 become a medium for Okpe people, both at home and in the Diaspora to express solidarity in their collective quest for economic empowerment and political emancipation within the context of their belief in one, united and prosperous Okpe kingdom in particular and Nigeria in general. The union has been providing a rejuvenating process in Delta Central.
