PRESS RELEASE: ITSEKIRI RENAISSANCE GROUP BACKS GINUWA 1 RULING HOUSE
ITSEKIRI RENAISSANCE GROUP BACKS GINUWA 1 RULING HOUSE
The Itsekiri Renaissance Group notes with utter consternation the concerted blackmail plot by a clique of individuals who feel threatened by the new sense of Itsekiri nationalism engendered by the coronation of our beloved King, Ogiame Atuwatse III (CFR). More precisely, we are astounded by the tone and blatant lies contained in a vile document purportedly emanating from a shadowy group calling themselves "Iwere Consultative Forum."
The glaring contradictions and the acrobatic liberty taken with logic and decency make the document unworthy of intellectual engagement, hence our decision not to dignify it with a point for point rebuttal.
However, the Itsekiri Renaissance Group wishes to restate our unalloyed loyalty to the Itsekiri People, Land , and Crown as symbolised in the person of Ogiame Atuwatse III (CFR). Our stance is indeed representative of the wishes of all true sons and daughters of Iwere Land.
The misguided and ill motivated minority who have lent themselves to the actualization of the retrogressive agenda of their mischievous puppet master had better retrace their steps.
The convergence of providence and the emergence of a seemingly pro Itsekiri central administration demands that Oma Iwere come together to ventilate and articulate our common aspirations that transcend the nefarious agenda of the band of carpet baggers who have held Itsekiri political leadership hostage for some decades now.
As the foremost ethnicity to embrace the Christian faith, we are consoled in the scripture that declares in Proverbs 19:21 "There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand".
