King Daukoru, who is the traditional ruler of Nembe, in Nembe Local Government Area, Bayelsa State, said the LGAs have become drains on the nation’s resources.

He said, “Nigeria has 774 LGAs, which are recognized in the Constitution, and are part of the budgeting process of the States. Their functionality and economic well-being is a prime responsibility of the States.

“But since the past two decades, if not three, they have become a drain on national resources instead of being development centres and the foundation of national economic production.

“Thus, after all is said and done, it is these empty shells of the economic dream of the mid-seventies that the kings in the present time have to oversee in some form or other.”

He rallied support for the “launching of the next phase of development of my kingdom, which will encompass a gas-turbine, integrated farming and fish culture; land reclamation and large-scale reticulated water system; among others – just pushing my goodwill some more.”

He lauded former President Olusegun Obasanjo and “the two pillars of the Traditional institution at the present time, the great uniter and friend of all, His Eminence, the Sultan of Sokoto, and His Imperial Majesty the Ooni of Ife, a great mixer and listener. I say I deeply appreciate you for your individual qualities, and your leadership of our institution.

“Be assured that the South South will continue to work with you, at least for the duration of my leadership, to achieve all that is best for our nation, Nigeria, and the royal institution.”

The Bayelsa leader expressed the hope that the diversity of the gathering would be the face “of the united Nigeria of tomorrow, regardless of differences in tribe or tongue.”

In their separate remarks, both the Sultan and the Ooni, who lauded the celebrant’s contributions to the growth and development of the country, said the calibre of traditional rulers at the event spoke volumes.

“It demonstrates that the unity of the traditional institutions is real; we are not politicians.”

Similarly, the Ooni added that: “politicians will come and go but traditional rulers will remain on the seat of our forebears.

“We do not have any other country; this is our country. So, traditional rulers should use platforms like this and send messages that in unity we stand.

“Different tribes, different cultures, coming together for the unity of our country.”..CONTINUE.FULL.READING>>>
