The Monarch said: “I am particularly impressed with the scholarship scheme you are giving out to the children every year. Please you people should not Relent on it at all because the programme has positively affected the life of many of our children.”
“It pains me to see that many of the Okpe people are not educated. For Ovwore community to train their children in the universities, at graduates levels, it is a very good thing which you should not stop. The more you continue to do this, other communities in the kingdom will begin to emulate this good gestures. It is my prayers for the leadership of Ovwore community for God to continue to give you good health and more wisdom to do the needful for your people,” he said.
“More of our children should be trained at all levels in educational institutions especially at the University levels so that when ever there is any available space, they could have spaces to work”.
Major Mujakperuo added, “Ovwore community has come to stay, others will certainly learn very fast from them.

I am also appreciating every member of the community who followed your chief down to my palace for the same purpose. You people should be law abiding and peaceful at all times so that you as a community can grow faster to be the envy of all. I pray for long life and prosperity for all of you.”
Some of the leaders of the community who addressed journalists soon after the visit, Mr G E. U Komori, Comrade Sunday Asini, said they appreciated the Orodje of Okpe kingdom for granting one of their sons a Chieftaincy title, Chief Edward Sajere two years ago.
