ON THE OCCASION OF THE OPENING CEREMONY OF
EDO UNITY CONFERENCE,
HELD IN MANCHESTER, ENGLAND, ON
4TH OF OCTOBER, 2003.
I like to thank the organizers of the conference for inviting me to be part of the occasion. I salute you all and welcome all the participants who have come from far and near to attend this conference. I appreciate your kind invitation to me, but since I am not chanced to attend personally, I have sent one of my chiefs, Chief Nasakhare Isekhure, The Isekhure of Benin to present this goodwill message to make my presence felt amongst you.
congratulate the Edo Global
Organization, an umbrella organization
theme of this Conference � �Edo Unity �
A Means to Economic Emancipation of Edo
People� is aptly chosen, and also
challenging. It is coming at a time
when there is Dare need for self-help
efforts to bring about the economic
development of our land in far away
challenging because only a united people
can forge a common front for economic
development. This is why this
Conference, aimed at unifying all
Palace has heard complaints and fears
expressed about come problems of land
At this juncture, I urge you all to reason with that American leader, who says one must think of what he can do for his country and not what his country can do for him. This takes us to the idea of ensuring that Edo Unity forges a common economic agenda. Economic agenda, to me, means, all the programs that can be put together for the purpose of enhancing the well- being of our people both at home and in Diaspora, as well as bringing about modern infrastructural and technological development of our homeland. I therefore implore you all to make this conference a starting point to put in place measures, including pulling your resources together, to promote the common good of our people and State.
I further urge you all to shun all divisive tendencies, and remain united to be able to pursue the noble course of human and economic emancipation of our people and State.
Finally, I enjoin you all to co-exist well with the citizens and other nationals in wherever you are residing, and be very obedient to the laws of the land. Extend your good hands of fellowship to all and sundry.
this medium to say a big thank you to
representatives of some business groups
