Presenting the instruments, Chief Okwuofu commended Rt. Hon. Ndudi Elumelu for always doing those things that please the people and said that it all started when the Youths paid him a visit last month and requested his assistance towards acquiring the musical instruments.
She said that the Minority leader, having been convinced of their need for the instruments, gave his firm promise.
“He fulfilled his promise to them by procuring all the instruments needed for their musical career and today, am privileged to hand over the brand new equipment to them on his behalf,” Chief Okwuofu said.
Okwuofu described Elumelu who represents Aniocha/Oshimili Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, as a pride to Delta State, saying that she identifies with him because of his humility and good deeds for the betterment, not only for the people of Aniocha/Oshimili Federal Constituency but for Deltans and Nigerians in general.
While admonishing the beneficiaries to put the musical instrument into good use for their own benefit and to the glory of God, the renowned Political Leader, urged the youths in the Federal Constituency not to relent in their prayers for Rt. Hon. Ndudi Elumelu and the State Governor, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, said that their prayers and support are needed for them to continue to do more for the people.
Speaking on behalf of the Youths of Onicha-Uku, the Community Youth Leader, Mr. Adu Akaduchieme Michael commended Rt. Hon. Ndudi Elumelu for his kind gesture and said, though, Elumelu is known for such good gestures, the youth of the community are marvelled and appreciates greatly the empowerment of the talented youths with expensive and up to date musical instruments that would be of immense assistance to the furthering of their chosen field of Endeavors.
The two beneficiaries, Udeh Vincent Ifeanyi and Oseh Samuel Odiogor, who were visibly elated, expressed their joy and appreciation to the Minority leader and said that what they thought was a joke has come out to be a great source of establishing and settling them in their field of endeavour.
While commending Chief Nkem Okwuofu for her motherly role in the whole scenario, the beneficiaries promised to put the instruments to good use for their own betterment, that of their families and the society at large, even as they pledged to uphold Rt.
