It was a beautiful evening for Deltans in Lagos, as they converged at the Wheatbaker Hotel in Ikoyi for a pre-event party of the Delta100.

The Delta100 is a historical and real-time chronicle of one hundred inspirational stories of the most outstanding persons of Delta origin in the last century. The pre-event tagged ‘The heroes are coming’ was declared open with a welcome address by former Miss Tourism Nigeria and deputy director of the Delta100, Shirley Alero Aghotse.

Director of the Delta100 project, Omena Daniels, told the guests, “Heroes are not born, they are made. A hero is a young boy plying his tailoring trade in a Lagos suburb, in the backside of town, working on his craftsmanship, honing his skills and dreaming of a future better than the dingy one room he shared with few others. A hero is Clement Mudiaga Enajomo who has built Nigeria’s, if not one of Africa’s biggest fashion brands.”

He went on to mention other heroes such as Prof Grace Alele Williams, Dr. Newton Jibunoh, Pa James Ekpre Otobo, Olorogun Michael Ibru and others from different spheres who embody the true spirit of the Deltan tenacity, passion and desire to always win.

Omena also implored Deltans in Lagos to forget negative assumptions and visit Delta to see the massive human capital and infrastructural development the Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan administration had been able to deliver to the people.

Former Nollywood actor and Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Barrister Richard Mofe Damijo who was represented by the Special Assistant to the Delta State Governor and 1987 MBGN winner, Omasan Buwa, praised the initiative and reiterated the governments commitment to The Delta100 as a relevant unifying and inspirational project.

“Delta is a mini-Nigeria with its diversity, but yet growing stronger everyday forged by this administration’s relevant, responsible and pragmatic leadership”. she said.
