An Abuja based lawyer, former Aide to Govenor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State and Incumbent Chairman Ukehe United Front, Ifesi Nwodo has urged the Minister Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, Muhammed Musa Bello to make an order compelling residents of the capital city to belong and participate in their various village group activities.
Mr. Nwodo stated this after the first meeting he presided over as the Chairman of Ukehe people in FCT and its environs at the Funflex Gardens, Wuse zone 6 on Sunday, October 6, 2019.
Nwodo’s inauguration and official hand over took place at the September meeting.
He further observed that if all Abuja residents decide to belong and attend their community meetings, it will reduce crime, curb vagabonds and wanderers, and bring a proper identification of all residents in Nigeria’s capital.
The impact of identifying with one’s indigenous associations on crime involvement is significant, it can increase levels of prosocial behaviour, belonging, and happiness among people.
This is so because a community organisation offers members the opportunity to make a difference in the world, while furthering personal and career goals. Members meet together to support charitable causes, to socialise, and to share educational and personal growth opportunities.
He also used the opportunity to, on behalf of his community Ukehe, give special thanks to God and will by His Grace thank Him in a special way during the planned 2019 End-of-year/Thankgsiving Mass and Award day that is slated to hold on Sunday 1st December 2019 .
