thanks bro,,but why do u prefer Corolla? Don't u think matrix is also unisex and small?

Both are fuel efficient and their spare parts are almost the same.

Since you're a lady, go for Matrix

Shut it.

There is freedom of expression in Nigeria.

Let Government decide if their plea is right or wrong.

So you also do zoning in LG election, yet you don't want North-East and North-Central to produce the President of the country when you know they have not done their turn. Or have they?

Therein lies our greed.



The winner takes all mentality.


Good governance is sacrificed on the alter of selfishness, tribalism, hegemony,mediocrity, nepotism,favouritism, greed and all negative parameters.


If the intention is to serve for the collective good, the need for these agitations won't arise.

Buhari is a champion of the various vices listed above as evident in his appointments.



When shall merit and not mediocrity take the centre stage?

Point of corrections. Warri North comprises of Itsekiris and the Ijaws. The Itsekiris have been producing the local govt chairman, House o Assembly members and commissioner for the state since 1991 when it was created. The Ijaws have only been vice local govt Chairman since then. Even the secretary to the local govt have been Itsekiris all the way and even all the major post have been occupied by them in the LG. The LG has ten federal was out of which the Itsekiris have six while the Ijaws have four. And it is so because of politics. In actual size and population, the Ijaws territories are larger and more populated than the Itsekiris. So for fairness and equity, it is not wrong for the Ijaws to produce the LG chairman this time around. Though I fore one believe in good governance but at the same time sense of belonging is also vital for peace to reign and inclusive development.

This is the only thing Nigerians are after ; how to take power and enslave every other tribes. No plan of development. Who ever gets the power will amass wealth for himself and tribal men. A typical example of Buhari. African mentality is archaic and can never compete with other continents.

Europe for instance made sure that their nations are not forced into unitary country. The Europeans made sure that ethnic nations politically govern them selves. And cases where they are fussed into country, they made sure that politically, ethnic identities are represented and no one feels dominated.

Is Warri kingdom an Ijaw land? can an Itsekiri man become even a ward councilor in Burutu, nomadic, or Patani Local government?

OP, abeg make una dey clearify news before posting. This protest is strictly for PDP in Warri North not as you posted. It is PDP that are fighting theirselves not the entire Warri North.

Main reason for this is that the Itsekiris has been ruling that LG through PDP, and there is a MoU between the Ijaws and the Itsekiris as concern the LG and DESOPADEC.

The Ijaws and the Itsekiris shares the chairman of each of the office. Currently the Itsekiris are holding the chairman of both offices, since the past three tenures. Mind you Itsekiris are the minority of the state because they have no LG of their own, they are sharing Warri North and Warri South with the Ijaws and Urhobos respectively, they want to hold every offices. The Ijaws has Three LG of their own and share two LG with other tribes including the Itsekiris.

Let the Itsekiris choose between DESOPADEC and WARRI NORTH LG

Am not Ijaw nor Itsekiris but I live in Warri North and I know what's happening.



So

Obviously you are not enlightened about Warri Kingdom. All the three Warri LGs belongs to the Itsekiris, the fact the Warri is a highly developed metropolis that this why you have other tribes there. be you Uhrobo, Isoko Ijaw or whatever tribe you come from Warri kingdom belongs to the Itsekiris. (I blame the Itsekiris for being to accommodating and complacent for too long)
Can an Itsekiri go to Burutu, Bomadi, or Patani Lg to even contest for Ward Councilor?
I just pray that 1997 crisis will not repeat itself!

Greedy selfish people these same itsekiris have never allowed any other ethnic group to become the local govt chairman of warri south lga they have monopolized the office since the creation of the local govt amongst only the itsekiris despite also having the uhrobos and the ijaws as indigens of warri south local govt area. undecided

Even the Ijaws, Uhrobos, you are talking about knows that Warri Kingdom belongs to Itsekiris any other tribe in Warri are just Settlers there being that Warri is cosmopolitan area. It was wise for Babangida to have decided to make the capital of Delta State Asaba.

Are you trying to tell me that Ijaws are aborigene to Ondo State, Edo state, Lagos State, just because they are rivers where they can fish there. for your information anywhere there's water you will see an Ijaw man there even as Kebbi state you will Ijaws there. That doesn't mean they own the land. let the go to Burutu, Patani, Bomadi and the likes to contest for political posts.
