Tracing the crises and killings in Ogoni to the activities of the political gladiators, Mitee said peace and development in the area and indeed Rivers State can only be achieved when politicians shun their selfish interests and embrace peace and unity of purpose in their politicking.
Mitee, who was honored with an Award of Excellence Leadership by the group tasked Ogoni youths to shun cultism and violence.
Harping on the need for proper awareness campaign to restore peace among Ogoni communities and youths, Mitee thanked the group for finding him worthy for the award, promising to continue playing a people-centered leadership role for the benefit of the area and the state in general.
Also speaking, the Secretary to the Rivers State Government Kenneth Kobani appealed to Ogoni people to embrace peace and support the state government’s developmental efforts to enable it do more for the area.
Kobani said youths, as leaders of tomorrow, should be the architect of peace to create the enabling atmosphere for tomorrow’s leadership.
