Breaking: Ijaw Nation Blow Hot, Direct Gelegelegbini Community To Deals With Any Passenger That Trespass Their Land, Says Binis Are Edo Ijaw Tenants

Ijaw Nation attention has been drawn to the unguided, inciting and rogue statement made by the secretary of Benin traditional council ,one Frank Irabor on vanguard newspaper dated 2nd March, 2019 citing one purported and irrelevant supreme court judgment to have given the Benin a right of ownership over Ijaw community lands in the state.

The purported judgment only referred to unidentify parcel of farm land in an unknown location in one Unexisted imaginary gelegele. Our community is not gelegele but gelegelegbene. The said judgment has nothing to do with Gelelegegbene community and other Ijaw lands in the state.

Ijaws are not tenants in Edo state. We outlive them. It is Benins that are the strangers. They met us at Ovia river. We ferry them. The current Benin city was already existing, founded by the Ijaws before the coming of the Benins from Ife. The city was called Bini, meaning water people. This is historical fact. The judgment referred to 30years ago has nothing to do with Gelegelegbene and other Ijaw lands in the state.

Historically, we cited E. Alademomi Kenyo, who in his book titled The Origin and Title of Yoruba Rulers (N.D) Page 3, stated: ‘Up till time, the Oba (in Benin) and his people were pure Yoruba and did not understand the language of the aborigines, who usually salute themselves and the new people (the Bini) Adoo, Dolo.” It is only the Ijaws that greet Adoo and Dolo in Nigeria which is a indisputable fact.

Again ,J .U. Egharevba, book titled the short history of Benin (1968) also holds this view. Prof. Alan Ryder, a British national and former professor of history at University of Ibadan in his book, ‘Benin and the Europeans 1485-1897,’ Page 27, writes, ‘Whichever of the slave rivers the Portuguese frequented, the people they first met and traded with, would have belonged to Ijo (Ijaw) tribe, which at that time dominated the coastal belt of the swamp forest, extending inland to a depth of 30-40miles in the region. We make bold to say that the Benins are the invaders of Ijaws who are the original aborigines of Edo state .

It is worthy of note that Gelegelegbene, Ikoro, Okumu, Ikenwan were amongst the Ijaw villages that confronted the Yoruba invaders which is now the Benins that is recorded in the book titled ,The Origin and Title of Yoruba Rulers (N.D) Page 6, the author stated: ‘About 1170 AD, Prince Oranmiyan, one of the sons of Oduduwa of Ife, the father and progenitor of the Yoruba Obas………succeeded in reaching the city after much trouble at Ovia River with the ferryman (ibid)” same book page 9, he stated again, “about a century later, another Oba, Ewedo, had to undergo similar troubles to those which his great-grand father, Prince Oranmiyan, had from the ferryman at Ovia River

Enough of this nonsense ,Ijaw nation have alreday directed Ijaws in the state to deal with anybody coming to trespass and steal their land . We have directed them to go into self_defence and the sky will not fall. We are ready for the worst.

Be warned henceforth ,tresspassers will be on their own risk in Gelegelegbene community and other Ijaw lands in Edo state as Ijaw nation has directed a total clampdown of such criminals.

REVEALS!!! HOW I PLAN TO GROW AND DEVELOP ONDO STATE – Hon. Akinjo V. Kolade

Hon. Kolade Victor Akinjo, member of federal House of the representative, representing Ilaje/Ese-Odo federal constituency in Ondo State, has reaveles his plan to develop and grow the state when he elected as the governor of the state.

Acording to him, Ondo state is blessed with sufficient natural and human resources and their human resources can be rated as being excellent and the best in Nigeria. He added that Ondo state men and women are hardworking, intelligent and highly creative. Therefore what should be done include the building of desirable incentives and encouragements for them to be able to unleash their potentials in their collective desires to develop the sunshine State.

Kolade has sited an example, says that, his pet Mekunnukoya Cooperatives will be replicated and boosted in all the 203 Wards in the State if he is elected as the Governor of Ondo State.

According to him, Mekunkoya Cooperative is to encourage entrepreneurial development among the people for them to become self-employed, and this will also assist them to be able to have access to government loans to boost their economy.

However, Kolade opined that Ondo State can’t continue to solely depend on money from oil derivation because it’s an agrarian State that can supply agricultural products to other parts of the Country and outside the Country if they can creatively harness our agriculture potentials. Ondo State is one of the largest producers of cocoa, cassava, yams, citruses etc. Says, that he will devote attention to the tapping and development of the t resources available in the State.

He further asserted that Let’s the people bear it in mind that Ondo State has the longest coastline in Nigeria and reaveled the advantage of the coastline in aquatic activities which will be help to grow the economy by boosting employment opportunity to its riverside dwellers.

He added that, the forestry activities in the State will be regulated appropriately to accommodate all stakeholders’ interest without forfeiting the expected revenues for the government. According to Kolade, the regulatory policy of the government will allow the farmers in government reserve centers to do their farming and huntings without engaging in illegal activities.

The large bitumen deposits in the State will be given serious attention. This is to guarantee the exploitation and utilisation of the products locally and for export purposes. He stated.

The Security of the Ondo state will be anchored of Community Policing System whereby, the Community heads and Community leaders are organized and empowered to complement the efforts of Security Operatives in combatting crimes. Crimes will be tackled and reduced to the zero tolerance level.

He has also added that, Workers’ interest will be prioritised since the workers deserve their wages. Salaries and entitlements will be paid promptly and regularly. In service trainings will be organised for the workers on regular basis so as to make them current with modern methods of social administration.

The Honourable also make an emphasis about Education, says that it’s meant for the building of viable and happy society. If education can’t be offered freely, it should not be too expensive to bear for the learners as we currently have it in the State. I’ll review schools fees charged in the tertiary institutions and ensure that, at least, primary education is not only free but also compulsory in Ondo State.

While In the health sector, the qualified and competent health workers will be recruited and more Hospitals will be provided, equipped and staffed to prevent avoidable deaths in the State. Maternity Cares will be free and infants health care delivery will be free. There will be at least, one “mother and child” hospital in every local government of the State. Health is wealth principle will guide us in our health care delivery policy.

Both land, air and water transportation will be regulated to ensure safe, cheap and comfortable travellings in the State.

The Ondo State of his dream is one that is secured, friendly, developed with sustainable growth for all to be comfortable and happy.

Call’s God help;
So help me God! Amen!

Just In!!! Imo State Governor, Emeka Ihedioha Has Commenced The Demolition Of Monuments Built By The Immediate Past Governor, Rochas Okorocha

After some hours of the assumption of office, Imo State governor, Emeka Ihedioha has commenced the demolition of monuments built by the immediate past governor, Rochas Okorocha as his first action as governor.

According to the reports, Ihedioha was sworn-in as the sixth Executive governor of the state on Wednesday, May 29th.

MainNews Blog gathered that Akachi tower, one of the many tourist attractions built by the former governor is being demolished as at the time of filing this report.

However, it was built on a reclaimed dump site that was abandoned by previous administration and the demolition exercise was supervised by soldiers who barred journalists from covering the exercise of the demolition.

The Akachi monument was one of the structures commissioned by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo barely one week ago.

The monument, a massive tower with the symbol of a hand on the Zenith, representing the hand of God, sits on an expansive plot of land, reserved for religious purposes.

There are fears that the new governor will also demolish other monuments in Owerri, the state capital, especially the famous statues.
