” You must be seen to be the engine of the Isoko strategic renewal initiative. Your capacity to be engaged in community and citizenship behavior should be aroused to make value added contributions to the development of Isoko nation.”
High Chief Iduh also charged the elected and political appointees to provide the needed support for our amiable Governor to steer the ship of the State and providing development in all ramifications to our people.
