During the Kings remark, He stated that “The gathering of the Okrika Royalties and Great Alapus here today is very significant. Significant because it will send notice to the cynics within and outside of Okrika that never again will the people of Okrika nay Kala-Ogoloma Kingdom allow themselves to be ignored in the scheme of things in Rivers State and the country in general’’ .
He further stated, ‘’In the past, the people of Kala-Ogoloma Kingdom particularly the Amadi-Ama Community had the institution of Elders Councils which formed part of community leadership. These Elders’ councils have been constituted into Traditional Chancellors to act as advisers to the Amanyanabo and Chiefs. Similarly, key community development areas have been identified and to be administered by selected competent individuals and chiefs who functions as Secretaries. This is done to make community leadership productive and impactful on the people’’.
‘’Therefore, we have in the Kala-Ogoloma Structure, the Royal Arm, the Chancellors and the Secretaries. This is our own innovation to strengthen the traditional institution in a cosmopolitan City like Port Harcourt, as well as the state’’.
The King called on investors to take advantage of the peaceful disposition to invest in Kala-Ogoloma Kingdom.
