The joy of any Royal father is acceptance by his people. I have enjoyed the love, acceptance and support of my people of Oriade. My people have longed for a King who will bring all together and interface with the relevant authorities to bring speedy development to area. When I ascended the throne, their morale was boosted as they have confidence that there will be peace and accelerated development in Oriade and that is why I am on groung to fast track all that. I equally have friends who love Oriade and share in my vision to make Oriade a place to be. Even before I came in, I did a needs assesment because of my vision for Oriade. This gave a clear understanding of what was lacking in my community. We had to do some priority setting because for a developing town like Oriade, basic infrastructure for growth is paramount. Healthcare, Conducive studying environment for children, Portable water, accessible roads, Electricity; connection to the National Grip is of utmost urgency.
What are your plans for development for this great town?
My people are big time cocoa merchants and in this day of mechanized farming and use of value-adding farm implements, the availability of electricity cannot be over emphasized.
