ITSEKIRI NATIONAL YOUTH COUNCIL
ETHIOPE WEST CHAPTER
Ref No: 006/04/20
REJOINDER: TOTALITY OF TOWNS AND VILLAGES IN URHOBO NATION ACCORDING TO KINGDOMS- OGHARA, JESSE AND MOSOGAR KINGDOM.
The attention of the Itsekiri National Youth Council (INYC) has been drawn to the deliberate corruption and or inclusion of autonomous Itekiri Communities existing in Ethiope West Local Government Area as part of Oghara, Jesse and Mosogar Kingdom.
In the evolutionary history of man, history records man but humans tend to rewrite history for strategic reason or quest for undue dominance. In the eyes of the law, silence they say means consent. Hence, this rejoinder to set the records straight in Ethiope West Local Govt Area to provide Distinguished Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, the Deputy Senate President with the correct information in respect of autonomous Itsekiri Communities in the area. Below are the names of Itsekiri Communities in Ethiope West Local Govt Area whose indigenes reside within and
outside the LGA till date. They are:
These fifteen autonomous Communities are solely occupied by the Itsekiri pre-colonial era till date. Therefore, it is pertinent for the Federal Government to know that the claim by some section of the leadership of Oghara, Jesse and Mosogar is a deliberate ploy to disenfranchise our people from enjoying the dividend of democracy haven contributed in the voting process that saw the emergence of the President Mohammadu Buhari as president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Therefore, we call on the appropriate authorities through this rejoinder to the council for proper coordination of whatever palliatives meant for the Itsekiri people in Ethiope West Local Govt Area.
