NDGM CALLS FOR ITSEKIRI TOWN HALL MEETING
The National Co-ordinator of Niger Delta Grassroots movement, NDGM, Comrade Weyinmi Olley has called on Itsekiri Nation to organize a Town Hall meeting to look into various problems confronting Itsekiri and proffer solutions.
Comrade Olley who made this call in Warri recently, further said that there was need to promote a united and peaceful co-existence among the Itsekiris and live in harmony with her neighbours.
He also called on Itsekiris to promote and preserve their culture and tradition, adding that in the time past Itsekiris were highly admired and respected because of their dignity, unity and influence in all spheres of life.
Accordingly to him, "if the Itsekiris of old lived like this, there would have been no Itsekiri in existence today. Our ancestors are angry because things are not going the way it should be", he asserted.
Comrade Olley clearly stated that the Itsekiri Town Hall meeting became very necessary to all Itsekiris to enable them address all the pressing issues as well establish the truth and fashion out viable programmes that would move the Itsekiri Nation forward.
He pointed out that the proposed Town Hall meeting which should come up within the shortest possible time, would afford the people the opportunity to speak their minds and contribute their quota, adding that, moderators and seasoned technocrats would be on ground to articulate all matters raised and suggestions as working tools to improve the lives of the Itsekiri people and accelerate the development of Itsekiri Nation.
Comrade Olley suggested that the proposed Itsekiri Town Hall meeting should have in attendance; Itsekiri Leaders of Thought (ILT), anointed Itsekiri men of God such as Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor and Rev. (Dr.) S.E Gbejoro as well as some prominent Itsekiris such as Hon. Thomas Ereyitomi, Hon. Daniel Reyenieju, Hon. (Barr.) Daniel Mayuku, Hon. David Tonwe, Hon. Evang. Michael Diden Alias Ejele, Hon. Mofe Pirah, Hon. Benson Onuwaje, Mr. Isaac Dorsu, Mr. Mode Akoma and other resourceful stakeholders of Itsekiri Nation.
