O  Okpe is one of the more than 250 ethnic groups that constitute the Federal Republic of Nigeria. With an estimated population of 1.3 million, Okpe forms a significant proportion of the population of Delta State. The homeland of the Okpe people is situated in the central senatorial district of Delta State. The Okpe Kingdom, with its headquarters in Orerokpe, is an ancient kingdom whose first Orodje (King) was installed in the 17th century. "According to historical sources, the Okpe are reputed to be the best politically organized ethnic nationality for governance within its immediate geo-political area, second only to the Benin Kingdom." [1] The major cities/towns of the Okpe include Sapele (or Urhiapele, as it was known before British colonial rule), Elume, Aghalokpe, Oviri, Adagbrasa, Amuokpe, Aragba, Adeje, Esubi, Mereje, and Opuraja. OKPE VOICE is a cyberspace institute of Okpe studies. Its objectives include the facilitation of national consciousness among the Okpe, as well as the propagation of Okpe culture, language, history and political development for the general information of the public. The promotion and defense of Okpe interest remain the paramount objectives of OKPE VOICE.
