A youth leader in Ogulagha Kingdom, Burutu local government area of Delta State, Comr. Dede Roland Pere-Ebi has extolled the sterling leadership qualities of Sir Godfrey Tare Pondi, popularly known as Dibia on his birth anniversary. 

Comr. Roland Dede while extolling the Niger Delta King of the youths, Dibia had described Tare Godfrey Pondi as a true leader that has silently produced leaders in the region.

The Ogulagha Kingdom youth leader issued the birth anniversary message via a statement he personally signed, a copy of which was sent to The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide earlier today. 

Speaking further, Comr. Roland Pere-Ebi Dede had particularly prayed to the Lord Almighty and the Ijaw traditional deities to continue to protect and prosper Sir Godfrey Pondi  beyond human comprehension. 

In his words: ” As today marks the birth anniversary of a Niger Delta titan, Godfrey Pondi, with all the various constituencies I represents, I wish you a blissful happy birthday celebration. 

“You are indeed one of the wonders God has created for humanity, I am always proud of you for always defending the oppressed in our society, I can also attest to the many struggles you have being through just to make Niger Deltans have a sense of belonging in the Nigerian state. 

“It is my prayer that the Lord Almighty shall envelop you with more wealth so that you can do more for the downtrodden people, I personally appreciate you for the good things that you have been doing for Ijaw nation. I cannot in any way keep quiet on your birth anniversary.”

For his selflessness in the Niger Delta struggle, Comr. Roland Pere-Ebi Dede had noted that men like Dibia are very few in the Niger Delta region, expressing optimism that he is hopeful that better days are here for him, describing Godfrey as a rare blessing to Niger Deltans.

As a philanthropist, Comr. Dede in 2020 during the Covid-19 lockdown in Delta State became one of the first to ever donate his full salary for the upkeep of the elderly in Sokebolou/Yokiri communities, Ogulagha Kingdom, Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State. 

It would be recalled that Comr. Roland Dede is a member of the Delta State Land and Waterways Security Committee.
