A call has gone to the people of Nsukwa Kingdom in Aniocha South Local Government Area of Delta State to live in peace and unity, forgive one another and think of ways to move the community to a greater height.
The traditional ruler of Nsukwa Kingdom, Obi Dr Kenneth Ezegbunem 1, made the call during the annual conference of the community at Nsukwa.
He urged the entire sons and daughters of the community, home and abroad, to join hands with him and his council of chiefs to move the community forward rather than thinking of crisis that will bring the area down, saying that nobody can destroy the community.
The royal father said people should see peace as their watch word, live their lives in the fear of God, adding that peace and unity was the wheel on which development manifests.

He urged the youths to be focused, engage in meaningful skills that will help them to be self-dependent, adding that they should shun social vice’s like cultism, yahoo and others capable of truncating their future.
