Don't use me to find cheap popularity, Emami replies Pirah
Chief Ayirimi Emami


The Ologbotsere of Warri and foremost indigene of Ugborodo, Chief Ayirimi Emami, has hit back at Delta State Commissioner, Bureau for Special Duties, Hon. Omamofe Pirah, saying the Ogidigben born Delta State Commissioner should not use him to, "find cheap popularity".

 

Chief Emami in a swift reaction to a report just published by this newspaper, wherein Hon. Pirah stated that people like himself, Chief Thomas Ereyitomi, Mr. Isaac Botosan and Chief Ayirimi Emami, should be ashamed of the underdevelopment of Ugborodo, averred that he was not part of any meeting where the Barr. Austin Oborogbeyi led Ugborodo Management Trust was dissolved.

 

The Warri Traditional Prime Minister, who stated that Hon. Pirah had not been there since he began championing issues of shore protection/ sand -filling of Ugborodo and other Itsekiri coastal communities as well as the need for the Federal Government to resume work at GRIP Ogidigben, averred that Hon. Pirah can not play saint on the underdevelopment of Ugborodo, "because he and others, laid the foundation for the situation Ugborodo Community is today".

 

 

According to Chief Emami, Hon. Pirah objected to the appointment of Austin Oborogbeyi as Chairman of Ugborodo Trust few months ago when he was made PRO, because he wanted to be chairman and " it is now surprising that Pirah is speaking in support of Oborogbeyi, who he rejected then. He went as far as calling on the EFCC to investigate the Oborogbeyi leadership. It is not now that we are working on a possible alliance with our Ijaw neighbours, with a view to finding sustainable peace and development that Pirah, will issue diversionary statement, when he has been busy on Facebook and other social media platforms criticizing, while some of us have been agitating, calling on the Federal Government and International Oil Companies, to develop our riverine and oil producing communities".

 

Emami added: "I am not aware of the dissolution of Oborogbeyi led Trust, what I heard was suspension. As Ologbotsere of Warri, my responsibility is to find lasting peace and development for all Itsekiri communities, not getting involved in issues that promote stunted growth".
