Vociferous pressure set, Itsekiri Liberation Group, ILG has come down heavy on Urhobo Progressive Union, UPU and the Chief Ighoyota Amori led DC-23 over their lobby for Itsekiri Nation to support an Urhobo indigene to emerge governor of Delta State come 2023, saying the UPU and DC-23 cannot be talking of justice, equity and fairness, “when Itsekiris in Delta Central are suffering Political and Economic Marginalization”.

 

In an open letter addressed to UPU and DC-23, ILG stated: “Now that you people are seeking our support, we will want you to reciprocate by respecting the Itsekiris of Delta Central, by giving them your full support to get the tickets for one House of Representatives seat and two State House of Assembly seats, come 2023. Respect they say is reciprocal”.

 

In the letter authored by Comrades Mone Oris and Ajofortan Omagbemi, Chairman and Secretary, respectively of ILG and made available to Fresh Angle International today, Wednesday July 21, ILG added: “The Itsekiris of Delta Central are not considered for any political appointment in the state as commissioner, board members and at federal government level. Now that you people are talking about justice, equity and fairness, it will be good you people to put the positions mentioned above in our letter and more on the table for the purposes of fair play”.

Whilst stating: “Our people have their aboriginal communities in Sapele, Udu, Ethiope East, Ethiope West and Uvwie Local Government Areas of Delta Central. They have been living in their God-given aboriginal communities in the aforesaid local government areas for over 400 years now”, Itsekiri Liberation Group, averred: “It is also on record that the Urhobo of Delta Central, have taken two opportunities as governor of the State and it is on record that the Itsekiri Nation with the likes of O. N Rewane supported late Chief Felix Ibru, a prominent son of Urhobo Nation to become the first democratically elected governor of Delta State. Today, the Urhobos of Delta Central have turned blind eyes to the Itsekiris of the same district over the years, despite their continued support”.

 

“Recently, your son at the Federal level, almost insulted the Itsekiri Nation by projecting Urhobo son for the Board of NDDC zoned to Delta South Senatorial District, ignoring the call from the Itsekiris that is their turn to occupy such position. Could that be referred to as equity and justice? Now that you came preaching equity and justice, it should begin with the Urhobo of Delta Central, who have seen other tribes; especially the Itsekiri neighbors as second class citizen. We want to state here that we have encouraged our sons and daughters in Delta Central to contest the governorship election and other elective positions come 2023. The Urhobos have taken two opportunities as governor from the Senatorial District. It is now the turn of the Itsekiris in Delta Central to be given the opportunity to take the shot, because they have given enough to their Urhobo brothers”, the group stressed.
