Amuokpokor-Elume Community in Sapele Local Government Area of Delta state was joyous a few days ago as Honourable (Engr.) Emmanuel Okpemagware Omuvwie, Senior Special Assistant (SSA) on Project Monitoring and Evaluation to the Governor of Delta State, Senator (Dr) Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa, donated a giant size deep freezer alongside soft drinks of different brands and other items to boost the internally generated revenue of the community.
Honourable Omuvwie, who is also the Chairman/CEO of Kpemisco Nigeria Limited, was represented at the occasion by Comrade Egbesu Samson, Senior Accountant at the DESOPADEC.
Presenting the donated items to the leadership of the community, led by the Chairman, Mr. Christopher Efe Obule, Mr Samuel Azu, among very many others, the SSA enjoined the leadership of the community to put the items into optimal use so as to boost the revenue base of the community, adding that it was necessary for the community leaders to start thinking out of the box towards the economic strengthening and development of the community.
He said that the donated items should be managed by men of unquestionable character who could utilise the opportunity to boost the internally generated revenue of the community, adding that with the donated items and the near availability of electricity owing to the 10KVA power generating transformer earlier donated to the community by him, cold water and drinks could be sold to not only residents in the community, but those in neighbouring communities, particularly during major events.
Responding, Mr. Obule thanked Honourable Omuvwie for his untiring efforts at ensuring that the community continued to remain on the trajectory to greater heights, adding that the community owed the SSA a lot of appreciation, just as he prayed that God would continue to give the SSA good health, excellent financial disposition and the enablement that would enhance the actualisation of his passion to uplift humanity.
It would be recalled that the SSA had recently attracted an NDDC 1.5 kilometre concrete paved road project to the community as well as beautifying the major road in the community with over 750 planted species of the masquerade trees, spanning over 2.5 kilometres.
