We write to bring to the awareness of the good people of Kogi state, the central part of the state to be specific, about the impertinent refusal of Anebira to entrust Ogori people with representative position both at the lower and upper chambers of the National Assembly.
Since the creation of Kogi state with three major ethnic groups namely; Okun, Ebira and Igala, Anebira have agitated for political power shift with all forms of violence and intimidation as a result of the domination of the state by Igalas who sees governorship as their birthright. This agitation also led to attrition of youths in Ebiraland whose lives were taken in the cause of ensuring power shift was experienced by Anebira. In those days, Anebira were determined in addressing their disconsolateness for power shift and never saw the pain of marginalization melted on the people of Ogori/Magongo caused by their avidity and lack of moral senses to acknowledge the very thing they preach against in public was greedily endorsed in secrecy.
The people of Ogori/Magongo have been brushed aside owing to some purported lies making waves in Ebiraland that they are not Anebira with little or no tribal affliction, thereby regarding Ogori/Magongo as a minority ethnic group in the central. This ideology persisted for long until the struggle of late Gen. Emmanuel Abisoye rtd and other reputable men of the soil came into physical being when Ogori/Magongo local government was established with its headquarter in Akpafa. The neglect and marginalization became annoying as the struggle of self-liberation yielded no positive results, rather it was more a struggle to fuel marginalization at a higher point of annoyance on the side of Ogori/Magongo.
Today, almost all Anebira subscribe to the opinion that on no circumstances should the people of Ogori/Magongo be made to represent Okene/Ogori/Magongo constituency at the federal House of Representatives. This ethnic superiority and dominance of Anebira was a major issue the Late AT Ahmed intended to expurgate if elected Governor before death claimed his life.
Doubtless, power is intoxicating and an unquenchable desire accompanies it, but if one fails to understand that the same power is ephemeral and is given by God. A replica of the accidental occurrence in 2015 gubernatorial election may find its way in again, it might not be exactly how it occurred, somehow the possibility remains unpreventable.
The people of Ogori/Magongo have demonstrated commendable and satisfactory willingness of endurance, and this is the time they should be given leadership position to test their own competence and shrewdness in representation which will no doubt amount to proper representation.
You can’t do the same thing repeatedly and expect different results when there seems to be other alternatives, any aspirant who is not emerging from Ogori/Magongo is strictly engulfed by selfishness and the desire to accumulate wealth, not for exceptional representation as it ought to be, this is chiefly a call to duty and not pleasure as a two-term House of Representatives member termed it.
