Group Tasks Members On Security


Retired members of Omopi Patriotic Fellowship (OPF) in Omerelu in Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State have been charged not to relent in promoting issues that have to do with security in order to move the community forward.
The OPF Sherriff, Patriot Basil Didia gave the charge in a get-together party in honour of 10 retirees of the body in Omerelu recently.
Didia said that the charge became imperative due to the security challenges rocking the country.
He noted that if there was insecurity, economic, and social upheavals, education and other activities would not take place.
The OPF’s arrow-head, who empathised with the present condition of the members urged them not to be discouraged . He added that they are only retired and not tired.
He stressed that their experience and advice would still be needful in the community in all aspects of human endeavour.
