The Urhobo Peoples Integrity Organization (UPIO) has charged the Delta State Government to embark on a talent hunt at the grassroot in order to enhance the development of sports in the state.

In a statement signed by UPIO President, Dr Ebenezer Okorodudu and Secretary, Chief Jerry Eruvbedede, shortly after the monthly general meeting of the organization at Ekpan, Uvwie Local Government Area at the weekend, also hailed Urhobo-born 2020 Tokyo Olympic bronze medalist, Ese Brume for her performance.

UPIO noted that Brume had not only made Nigeria and Delta State proud but had brought honour to the Urhobo ethnic nationality.


It held that the Olympic medalist deserved all the praises and honour for being the first athlete to win a medal in the Nigeria contingent at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

The organization, in the statement, congratulated Senator Ighoyota Amori on his 69th birthday.

The body stated that Chief Amori distinguished himself as one of the great political leaders who contributed to the unity, peace and development of Delta State, and prayed that God should give him good health, long life, wisdom and all that he needed to assist Urhobo nation and indeed Delta State to higher heights.
