His Royal Highness, King Felix Tamunoseipiriala Okuru in a statement said the people of Ele Kingdom have been given a sense of belonging by these gestures, as it is the first of its kind from any governor of the state.
The ancient Ele monarch maintained that for the governor to remember the community in his development plans, the people are mostly grateful, and assured that they are fully mobilized and ready to exercise their franchise in the forthcoming elections for candidates that have the interest of the community at heart.
He therefore on behalf of the Ele Divisional Council of Chiefs and the good people of the ancient Ele Kingdom pledged their loyalty and support, stressing that construction of the landing jetty will in no small measure alleviate the untold suffering being experienced during low tide, while it would also encourage business investments in the area and further assured that all necessary co-operation will be given to the contractor when the project commences.
King Felix T. Okuru, Apina vii also lauded the Chairman of the Local Government Council, Barr.
