He had particularly stated that the future of Niger Delta is bright with people like chief Izan at the helms of affairs.
“Certainly, there are some categories of people that when they are born into a society, family, Kingdom, Community, Country, Local Government, State and indeed into the World, the society in general began to feel their positive impacts.
“Chief Ogbona is an eloquent testimony of one that have come into this Wold as a beacon of hope to his people, he belongs to the few Niger Deltans with a golden mind, he viewed and sees life as a place not just to merely exist but to put up lasting legacies in the lives of the downtrodden.
