Empowered by the Nyenwe-Eli (paramount ruler) of Rumuwoji Community, Chief John Dike and the community’s council, the Rumuwoji Youth Solidarity Movement in Port Harcourt has inaugurated a 10-man Executive Committee to run its affairs.

“You are aware that for sometime now, the youths of Rumuwoji community have not been meeting and for any leader, traditional ruler or community to succeed, it needs the support and involvement of the youths. “See the community first and work with the community council in ensuring that the good things that are meant for the community are attracted to it; he charged.
In an address, the Rumuwoji Community Council through its secretary and chairman, of Greater Port Harcourt Cluster Development Board, Hon. Dickens Worlu described the exco as “a formidable team and reformative body that will chart the way forward for our community, adding “there is no way we can carry-out development projects where the youths are not carried along so the inauguration is a welcome development.”

He pledged that they’ll seek advice from the council/elders and will refrain from taking laws into their hands and co-operate with the council which is the “supreme” body int eh community in moving the comunity forward.
