"Funnel of ideas for a better Urhobo"

Welcome to Urhobo Bridge UK!

INTRODUCTION:

 

In a gathering of Urhobo think tank people in Sept 2007 in London, with such calibre of Urhobo people and dignitaries as Chief Dr E. K. Clark, Chief S. S. Obruche the President of Urhobo Historical Society London, Chief P. A. Wanogho President of UPU London Branch for many years, Mr E. J. Okorode President of Urhobo Social and Cultural Club London and many other important personalities and elders such as Chief Ugbomo, Chief Christopher Onomijega and many others all in attendance, it was observed that there exists a gap created by disunity among Urhobos as a nation and something was needed to be done urgently about it. And that led to looking critically into the structure in place at that time which requires that the gap identified has to be "Bridged"...... Read More

The URHOBO BRIDGE:

 

As the name signifies and from the background information above, this organisation is formed for the following reasons:

 

1.                  To provide the “Bridge”  or “Link” or “Connection” among all the Urhobo people and organisations that serve the Urhobo people. It has been seen that the other groups and organisations are operating individually in their own sphere of formation. But the Urhobo people as a nation in the 21st century needed to operate more as a corporate body rather than individually. We see nations forming a larger organisation to produce a big voice. For instance, the European Union that combines the forces of all its member nations gets things done faster and better for the benefit of member nations with that formidable might and voice from all member nations and producing one voice of purpose. The same is true of the African Union and the USA. Urhobo nation should not and cannot be an exemption. We need one voice of purpose to move forward.

 

2.                  Urhobo as a nation needs to work together as one in unity among all the individualistic groups so that it will be possible to produce a singular voice that represents the voice of the Urhobo people.

 

3.                  To provide the avenue for bringing together the activities and efforts of the individuals, clubs, groups and organisations that handle one aspect of Urhobo affairs or the other and to bring about a holistic fulfilment of the aspirations of the Urhobo people. This connection will mainly be with the Ivies and Oloroguns in all the 22 (or 23) Urhobo Kingdoms (Clans), UPU, Urhobo Historical Society and the other Urhobo organisations.

 

4.                  To provide a “bridge” or a link between our present leaders and the generations following them so that there is “shadowing” or “mentoring” or “discipleship” or any such name that will happen along the line so that there can be smooth transition of leadership.

 

5.                  To provide an avenue for enlightenment/education of the Urhobo people, politically sensiting them and create ample awareness for the people from all aspects and works of life within the Urhobo people.

6.                 

To foster peaceful and harmonious co-existence among the various Urhobo groups and clubs (comprising of the "Ivie", "Ekakuro", "Ilorogun", Chiefs, elders, elites, the women folks "Eghweya” and the Youths "Ighene") so that the focus will be a unified move for the actualisation and realisation of Urhobo aspirations and not individualistic and selfish struggle that hitherto tear us widely apart.

 

 7.

To foster the atmosphere of brotherly/sisterly love for one another. And for peaceful co-existence with neighbouring non-Urhobo people and organisations for our common goal of purpose within the comity of nations in Nigeria to be achieved.

 

8.

To provide an avenue that fosters a holistic Social, Political, Economical and Cultural development of Urhobo people and Urhobo land.

 

9.

To provide a "Funnel" of ideas for a better Urhobo. That is, opening the gateway for individuals (young or old, men or women) and organisations among Urhobos for realising a better Urhobo nation. This links with our drive towards enterprise and entreneurship.

 

10.

To provide avenue for working together with Urhobo families to encourage our youths to take up the challenge of high academic performance and achievements in schools and colleges. This will follow on with the "mentorship" proposal above. Urhobo has produced many high achievers in academics, arts, engineering, law, accountancy, surveying and in fact all fields of profession. Our youths need to be encouraged to continue to achieve higher and not the other way as we see these days in the UK.
