Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has called on Niger Delta youths to use their talents to promote development  in the region.

 

Speaking  on  Thursday  when he received the international award winning  Port Harcourt Male Ensemble at the Government House,  Port Harcourt, Governor Wike  said  that  positive  contributions of youths are vital to the revival of the fortunes of the Niger Delta.

 

He said the Port Harcourt Male Ensemble by their exploits have proved that youths can channel their energies to useful purposes outside of violence.

 

 

He said: “I feel so happy  and delighted that we still have young men who have not wasted their youth on vices.

 

“Youths should emulate the Port Harcourt Male Ensemble , which has promoted the  Niger Delta  and Nigeria  at international  competitions. We will  support the group to further promote the region”.

 

The  governor  charged the members of the Port Harcourt  Male Ensemble  to always serve as agents of positive change,  who challenge other youths to embrace a positive  lifestyle.

 

He approved the group as the official choir of the Rivers State Government House, adding that they will perform in all forthcoming  events in the state.

 

The governor  also approved the release  of  a coaster bus to ease the movement  of  the  group to perform  across the country.

 

Governor  Wike  assured the group  that his administration  will  support them in hosting the music  festival  in March 2017.

 

Earlier,  the  director  of the Port Harcourt Male Ensemble, Mr Bob Amuye  said the all-male group was formed to reach out to the world through music ministrations.

 

He stressed that the group has been  using music as a tool for the promotion  of peace,  unity and youthful  contribution  to societal  development.

 

He urged the governor  to appoint the group as the official  mass choir of  the  Rivers State Government House. He informed  the governor that the group plans a major international  music festival  in March 2017.

 

Highpoint  of the  event was the  presentation  of  an award of  excellence  to Governor  Wike  by the  group.
