Chairman of Oil rich Ogulagha Community, Comr. John T. Bebapere in Ogulagha Kingdom, Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State has vowed to work collectively with his exco and entire members of the community to bring back the lost glory of Ogulagha. The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide can report.
The articulate Chairman of Ogulagha community made the vow on Saturday 19th of March 2022 at Ogulagha community town hall during the inauguration ceremony of the new exco members of the community headed by Comr. John Bebapere as Chairman.
According to Bebapere, he said his administration will work closely with all leadership organs in the community as well as the kingdom leadership in ensuring that peaceful coexistence among members of the community remains unshakable.
Chairman John said the community election has come and gone, adding that there is nothing like a winner or looser, stressing that the only thing is that it is Ogulagha community that has won.
He noted that his administration will develop a developmental framework to ensure that within three years, Ogulagha wears a new look in the various sectors of the community, stressing that such developmental policies will be achieved via the community budget and understandings with companies operating in the area.
Speaking further, Comr. John had particularly charged sons and daughters of Ogulagha community to shun acts capable of plunging the community into something else but to rather embrace peace at all times and see one another as true brothers and one big family.
He maintained that there is more to achieve by being united as one big family than a divided one, noting that the better and stronger Ogulagha community sons and daughters are craving for can only be achieved by the positive contributions of all.
However, Mr. John Bebapere had appreciated High Chief Government Oweizide Ekpemupolo, alias Tompolo for his role in ensuring that Ogulagha remains peaceful and united, adding that words have failed him to properly appreciate Tompolo for his many sacrifices he has made in the community, noting that he is hugely indebted to him.

They acharged the Chairman and his exco members to carry everyone along, stressing that when spider webs unite, they can tie up a lion, stating that with the power of love and unity, Ogulagha can achieve any set goal.
