The people of Ndokwa have been called to at every point in time promote the culture and tradition of the area, to ensure its rich and unique value is known to the world.
This call was made by the Delta State Deputy Speaker, Rt. Hon. Christopher Ochor Ochor, during the 2019 Cultural Day celebration of the Federated Union of Ndokwa Students, (FUNS), at the Delta State Polytechnic, Otefe-Oghara, in Ethiope West Local Government Area of the State.
The lawmaker who was represented by Mr. Emmanuel Enebeli, told the gathering made up of Ndokwa students and lecturers that it always pay to promote the culture of ones origin, in other to preserve the identity of the people of that area, which at the end further teach others who are not from that area the existence of their own culture.
According to Rt. Hon. Ochor, one of the best avenues to promote the culture of ones origin, is through the social gatherings of such people during events, such as the students’ cultural day celebrations in schools, as it was done by the students of Ndokwa nation in the polytechnic.
“One of the ways the Ndokwa culture and values can be known to the outside world is through events such as this which you are doing today. I encourage you to continue doing this, even after your graduation, promote our culture, and I plead that you should not be redundant in doing that. We have a rich culture and values, and we all have to be in the forefront to sell it.”
The Deputy Speaker, however reminded the students not to forget their primary assignment, which is their study, as he asked them to be focused and avoid falling against the laws of the institution.
“While I congratulate you for this successful gathering, I will not forget the fact that you are in this environment for your education. I therefore urge you to face your studies with all seriousness, avoid bad company and avoid falling foul to the laws of the institution.” Ochor stressed.
