I am highly excited and honored to welcome you all to this epoch-making event in the annals of our esteemed Foundation. Today’s occasion is a remarkably unique three-fold event that provides us the opportunity to render an account of stewardship for a 4-year tenure in office, the 11th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Foundation, as well as the inauguration of our newly elected Executive and handing over ceremony.
I sincerely thank God Almighty for giving me the grace to serve in the capacity of Executive Chairman of the most outstanding community-based development organization in the Niger Delta Region. The journey began in April 2017 amidst great expectations in the face of scarce resources, coupled with unfriendly economic trends. However, God in His infinite mercies helped us to navigate through and finished strong in a grand style.
In line with our core values of accountability, transparency, integrity, and reliability, we owe you a duty to render the account of our stewardship for the period under review from the last AGM till date, as well as the entire period of our stay in office. Some of our major successes, achievements, and giant strides cut across peacebuilding, as well as infrastructural and human capacity developments, accentuated by the social, cultural, economic, and political wellbeing of our great Kingdoms.
- Amb. Comr. Jude Ebitimi Ukori (JP)
