In attempt to hasten the progress of Urhobo Progress Union America (UPUA), I decided to run for the position of BOT Chair to bring new thinking into the running of the association. I campaigned on the slogan, “growth through unity and stability”. My goal is to : develop a long term vision, prepare a long term strategic plan, review UPUA’s community development programs and make UPUA a more transparent and accountable organization. I know the struggle for brotherly love in our homeland and among our people here in America will be a long one. There maybe many rivers and mountains to cross before we get to the promised land of brotherly love but Urhobo Ovuovo meaning Urhobo is One will get us there. Wakobiruo!
