Commendations trail Urhobo Challenge Quiz Competition
17 July 2017 State
The maiden edition of Dr. Ovie Ughwanogho Urhobo challenge quiz competition kicked off on Saturday 15th July, 2017 at three different locations which include Eku Girls Secondary School Eku, Urhobo College, Effurun and Unity School, Agbarho all in Delta Central senatorial district of the state.
The event sponsor, American-based Dr. Ovie Ughwanogho who is an Urhobo indigene is seen by most as a philanthropist who believes in the Urhobo culture and language.
At Eku Girls Secondary School Centre, Eku, the team leader who is also a director in Urhobo Progressive Youth Association (UPYA) whose association is in charge of organising the event, Big Joe Onoberhie commended the sponsor Dr. Ovie Ughwanogho for his laudable initiative and encouraged others to follow suit.
He encouraged parents of Urhobo extraction to speak Urhobo language with their children while at home. This he says will help the Urhobo language not to go into extinction.
The leader of the team who is also the president of Urhobo Progressive Youth Association (UPYA) whose organisation is in charge of the event, Marcus Ekure commended the sponsor of the event Dr Ovie Wanogho for his laudable initiative.
