Ogbaland is bleeding to death as a result of the criminal activities of Ogba sons and daughters in high places.
The story of Ogbaland brings troubling chills to the bone of human. Indeed, it is sad to see that the story of a blessed land has become a story of heartbreak, sorrow and tears.
The multi– National oil companies operating in Ogbaland are not the problem of Ogba people. The real enemies strangulating the poor people of Ogbaland are their own brothers and sisters.
An area richly endowed with mineral resources has become a disgrace to the black continent and to the civilized world. The case of Ogbaland is a classic example of black people inability to manage their own affairs.
Despite the vast opportunities which exist in Ogbaland as an oil and gas rich territory:, In spite of the huge revenues which accrued from the mineral resources in Ogbaland, the people of Ogbaland do not have critical basic social amenities, infrastructures and edifics to make life comfortable for the citizenry.
How can we explain to the outside world that a people so much blessed by the good LORD are living in extreme poverty and squalor, and their communities in dilapidated condition? This is very pathetic.
The wickedness of evil men in Ogbaland would not let Ogbaland grow to reach its full potential as planned by God Almighty.
This is what the evil men in Egi did to their fellow brothers and sisters.
Total is a multi– National oil company operating in Egi land. As part of its corporate social responsibility, Total Oil company has an ambitious agenda to develop Egi land to a 21st century smart and modern city.
Some of the fantastic projects earmarked for Egi modern city are University, communities tree planting projects, industries and pleasure parks. And to bring the Egi modern city dream to fruition, the Multi–National oil company opened a dedicated account for the project.
Unknown to the good people of Egi land, Chief Oris Onyiri, the current Chairman of Rivers state Civil servant commission and former Egi people’s Assembly President General ( EPA ) was the lurking snake at the corner waiting to unleashed his poisonous venom on the people.
As President of Egi people’s Assembly, chief Oris Onyiri and his Executive mapped out a strategy on how to lay their criminal hand on the ” Egi development fund” of Total oil company. Tuncrating the Egi modern city development dream was uppermost in their hearts.
The Executive of Egi People’s Assembly ( EPA ) presented themselves to Total Oil company as a group with the people’s mandate, and the Multi- National oil company released billions of Naira to Chief Oris Onyiri and his partners in crime..
To hoodwink Total Oil company and Egi people,
Chief Oris Onyiri and his team at Egi people’s Assembly embarked on a tour round Egi land searching for communities to locate projects.
They choose Obiezimimi as site for University, Obagi as community for the location of glass industry and Akabuka was their choice for tree planting project.
All the aforementioned projects never saw the light of the day. The projects died the moment they came.. Chief Oris Onyiri and his team have short changed the people of Egi land.
Chief Oris Onyiri and his Executive have stolen public funds meant for the development of Egi land. And as Egi people languished in abject poverty,, chief Oris Onyiri and his partners in crime are living luxurious life in their homes with the people’s common wealth.
