The President General of Ekid People’s Union, Dr Samuel Udonsak, has urged all sons and daughters of Ekid Nation to look up to the new year with hope and dedication.
In a goodwill message to mark the new year, Udonsak charged all the people of Ekid at home and abroad to recommit themselves to the task of rebuilding their communities and the state.
He gave the assurance that 2020 will rediscover the lost fortunes of Ekid nation and that the voice of the people will be heard again.
Displaying much focus and commitment, Udonsak said the current leadership of EPU under his watch will ensure that all the relevant issues concerning Ekid nation get due attention and appropriate actions from the year 2020.
According to him, EPU has already started consultation with the relevant stakeholders with a view to ensuring that the critical development issues in Ekid nation are properly tackled.
He however called on the people for support and urged every Ekid citizen at home and across the globe to get involved with suggestions, refreshing ideas, and committed resources to help make Ekid work again.
According to him, no one man can rebuild Ekid but with a combined effort, commitment and dedication, the lost glory of the ethnic nationality can be recovered.
Ekid nation, he recalled, used to serve as the bedrock of many other ethnic nationalities as well as serving as the launching pad for some of today’s local governments.
He reminded the people that they once shone the light for others and led the way to greatness but wondered what happened that Ekid lost its pride of place in course of time.
Udonsak however pointed out that the time for Ekid to reclaim its pride of place among the community of nations has arrived with the new year.
