Majesty Ogiame

Ogiame made the call yesterday while inaugurating new chiefs at his Aghofen palace.

According to the Warri monarch, “We (Itsekiri people) are peaceful and accommodating. We love our neighbours. Let’s fight for one another and then others will see our strength. “Let the Ijaw man fight for Itsekiri man, let the Ijaw man fight for the Urhobo man, let the Isoko man fight for the Ndokwa man.

“Invite us for your programme, when others see us together then they will realize we are one people and that we are not fighting ourselves.

“We must let the world know that we are one and they will be afraid to fight us. Our problem is divide and rule hence outsiders are (short-changing us)

“All the marginal fields and oil wells are owned by others, but if we unite then we will benefit. Let’s unite and live peacefully.” The Olu took a swipe at some of the Itsekiri political class who failed in developing the area when they had the opportunity.

He stated that greed and selfishness are the major plagues bedevilling his kingdom and called for a change of attitude.

Chief  Agbajoh thanked the Olu for the honour done her and promised to use the title for development of Itsekiri and Nigeria.
