Ndokwa Youths affirm their determination to protect and secure their various communities from all forms of criminality especially cultism, kidnaping, armed robbery, pipe line vandalization and illegal oil bunkering.
The youth leaders expressed their unflinching support to the present administration of Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa in Delta State for being youth friendly in policies and programs and for appointing many Youths into positions of responsibility in government.
The Youths agreed to come under one umbrella and elect a single leadership from all youth groups in Ndokwa nation that will be formidable and truly representative of their goals and aspirations.
