 Niu Colony Dimapur on Saturday celebrated its 25 years of colony recognition by the state government with advisor, Power, Tovihoto Ayemi and advisor, School Education, K Tokugha Sukhalu, as chief guest and guest of honour respectively.

In his speech, Tovihoto acknowledged the efforts and sacrifices of the pioneers who worked tirelessly for the establishment and recognition of the colony.
As the colony celebrates its silver jubilee, he asked the residents to continue to appreciate the efforts, contributions and sacrifices of the pioneers. He also urged the residents to foster the spirit of unity and maintain cordial relationship with neighbours.
The advisor, while admitting that sanitation has become a huge problem in Dimapur city, said well known colonies such as Niu Colony should set a commendable benchmark in keeping their colony clean so that others could emulate. 
Tovihoto Ayemi also called upon the people to continue to cooperate and support People’s Democratic Alliance Nagaland (PDA) for a progressive Nagaland.
In his address, K T Sukhalu said Dimapur being a cosmopolitan city was inhabited by different tribes and communities. He said tribes and communities have to support each other for the progress of not only their colonies but for the district as well for the state.
The advisor also informed the residents of the state government’s decision to address plastic pollution by initiating a program called, “Plastic Free Nagaland”.
K Tokugha Sukhalu requested the elders and residents of the colony, particularly the young boys and girls, to avoid using plastic. He also expressed desire for Niu Colony to become a model colony in cleanliness, harmony and in peace.
Speaking on the importance of education for the growth of a society, Sukhalu urged the community elders to ensure that children, studying in schools, are properly guided.
He asked the community elders to also ensure that teachers, both in the government as well as private schools, are teaching and nurturing the students properly so that they could become valuable contributing citizens of not only the colony but of Dimapur as well.
Earlier, the jubilee monolith was dedicated by Dimapur Sümi Baptist Church (DSBC) Sr. Pastor Rev S Vitoshe Swu and inaugurated by Tovihoto Ayemi. The jubilee souvenir was released by K T Sukhalu.
