Unity Of Niger Deltans, Key To Its Development- Botu
By Ndu Samuel
Revered Niger Delta youth leader who is the head of surveillance Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) Prince Emmanuel Botu, popularly known as (Olotu) on Friday stated that the unity of Niger Deltans is Key to the region’s development.
Prince Botu made the assertion yesterday in Warri while marking his glowing birth anniversary, stressing that his birth anniversary wishes is that apart from his self development, he wishes to see a more developed Niger Delta and Ijaw nation.
However, the Niger Delta youth leader and renowned philanthropist hinted The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide that he is thankful to the Lord Almighty to enable him see his birth anniversary, stressing that he will continue to be indebted to God for all the good things in his life so far.
Speaking further, the Olotu as he is popularly called has charged Niger Deltans to genuinely love themselves and not betraying themselves before others in the Nigerian state, adding that such behaviour has greatly hampered the progress of the region.
Nevertheless, he stated that the stagnated development in the region over the years is mostly caused by the lack of unity and genuin love among Niger Deltans.
Prince Emmanuel Botu had also added his voice to that of other good spirited Nigerians in congratulating High Chief Government Oweizide Ekpemupolo, aka Tompolo on the recent award of a pipeline surveillance security contract by the Federal Government of Nigeria.
The Olotu had expressed optimism that Tompolo will no doubt deliver fully in handling the Surveillance Contract by securing the pipelines, maintaining that such development deserved to be commended.
Meanwhile, rejoicing over the birth anniversary celebration of the young and visionary Niger Delta Prince, Amb. Binebai Yerin Princewill who is the President of Delta Ijaw Comrade Community (DICC) had described Botu as a blessing to Niger Delta.
Amb. Princewill continued that he has several reasons to celebrate Prince Emmanuel Botu because he has used his body and personal resources over the years in contributing towards the growth and development of the Niger Delta region.
Princewill asserted that he will always celebrate and encourage any Niger Deltan that has been contributing meaningfully towards the region’s development, stressing that Botu is one of such personage that has been silently adding value to the region’s development, stating that his good deeds has been under reported over the years.
He noted that through his contacts, Prince Botu has empowered and secured the employment of several Niger Delta youths into commissions and ministries in Abuja, praying that the Lord Almighty shall continue to guide, protect and give him long life and prosperity.
