The climax of the event was when the Nigerian Deputy High Commissioner Ambassador Dozie Nwanna, OON arrived. He was warmly received by the participants and he responded warmly too.
 
The event started with opening address by the President of Urhobo Bridge, Shadrack Okpako (Evang). That was followed with the presentation of the topic: Urhobo Survival Technique "Ifo" by Chief S S Obruche. That was followed with the presentation of: Delta Credit Union by Nwerhovwo Ughwujabo.
 
There was the session of Questions and Answers following the two topics presented. Many also made speeches that expressed their satisfaction and support for the initiative of the Credit Union. Participants were urged to go to their respective groups/unions to propagate this intiative in order that many people support it to succeed.
 
The Questions and Answers time was followed with the presentation of the topic: "Orogun Ogborigbo Myth" by Chief G. Oshevire. Then was the presentation of the "Ekene Legend of Agbarha" by Mr Sam Irivie.
Then there was a short break with some more Questions and Answers session.
 
The last topic of "Urhobo Traditional Marriage: Precedures and Process" was presented by Mr George Ikirigbe entirely in Urhobo language. He threw in a lot of humours into the presentation that exhilarated the whole people gathered in the hall. It made many people to request for another event where this topic should be repeated. After his presentation, Chief Ejiro Ughwujabo explained the presentation made by Mr Ikirigbe in English and went further to present the "Sanctity of Urhobo Marriage".
 
After all presentations, there was the raffle draw and the event came to a successful close.
 
Please visit this website often for the Communique that will be issued as a follow-up to the points raised during the event.
