The President of UPU Youthwing, Worldwide, Comrade Efemena Umukoro, felicitated with the President General of UPU, Chief (Engr.) Joe Omene, on the occasion of his birthday anniversary, saying that the PG is an Urhobo icon.
UPU Youthwing president, in a goodwill message described Chief Joe Omene as a man who has spent his resources and time in the defense of Urhobo interest not minding whose horse is gored.
He added: “Chief Joe Omene is a role model to us and has a name that is synonymous with boldness, integrity, truth, patriotism and generosity. He is the Ogbanogba of the Universe, the Lion himself, The War, the liquid metal.
“I strongly believe that if we had many of his kind, Urhobo Nation will be an Eldorado.”
According to UPU Youthwing president, Urhobo nation is blessed to have the likes of Chief Joe Omene at a time like this when her enemies are bent on relegating and sidelining Urobo Nation, the fifth largest ethnic group in Nigeria.
“I am a student of his ideologies. He has a self-esteem that intimidates his enemies and inspires his friends.
He is a role model to many of us and we hope to meet up with his high standards and records that he has set,” he said.
Umukoro wished the PG more fruitful years of celebration and success, as he assured the Urhobo leader of his continuous loyalty and support whenever the need arises.
