A mother deserve to be celebrated as a father in a society where all fathers are acting irresponsibly. While the men of the kingdom are in London enjoying themselves with palace offering and tithes that would have some minor needs like providing diesel for boats which will transport school children and other needs, a woman is busy using our energy, resource, time and connection to defend the kingdom and after the men Chiefs will tell her to shut up and sit down for expressing her displeasure where men are talking just because she is a woman.
I dedicate the yesterday Father's Day celebration to our amiable mother who is both hand and leg to us, in the person of Chief Rita Lori, a worthy, credible, dogged and selfless leader and elder personality Warri kingdom never had as an Olu, hmmm how wish the Oluship can be contested but unfortunately is hereditary . It is shameful to know that, after the likes of Chief Nana, chief Okotie-Eboh and some few other men, Itsekiri men seized to deserve a happy Father's Day celebration as they have failed in their fatherly duties to their children.
The shameful and disgraceful state of Warri kingdom is as a result of that nonchalant and irresponsible leadership of our present sects of leaders, elders and Chiefs. Note that, If only our olus of the second dynasty that are produced and locked by the Emiko/ Ejo's family descendants which started from Ginuwa ll down to Olu Ikenwoli and the wicked leaders of the 12 disciples had stood by Itdekiri nation just like what the likes of the first dynasty olus did which was further protected and strengthened by the likes of Chief Nana during the over 80yrs interregnum after the reign of Olu Akengbuwa and then the likes of Chief Festus Okotie-Eboh that is now continuing by the likes of great Chief Rita Lori and few others that relentless until this very moment, Itsekiri as a nation wouldn't be in this state of mockery she is today as a result of the greed by the drillers and dealers parading themselves as leaders.
For those of you asking " What has this so called Charles Eyimofe Pemu and his father done for Itsekiri as nation, that all he does is to challenge the status quo" should kindly be inform that, my father taught me morals, boldness and bluntness and not foolishness and he make sure I did not join the bandwagon of political deceitful hyper sing praisers as a tool in the hands of the oppressors just like most of the stomach Epuru boys . If not things would have gone worst than that what they are today. For that single act by my dad to ensure I do not become a tool in hands of the the drillers to frustrate the truth in a sycophantic service, Itsskiri should appreciate my dear Papa Eyimofe. I will continue to be on the neck of the leaders, elders and Chiefs until they either silent me just like John the Baptist was beheaded or they change. One may die of the truth but, the truth never dies. You do not have to like or comment because it wasn't meant for that but you cannot challenge any of the content of not being the truth.
May God bless Chief Rita Lori for us .
Charles Eyimofe Pemu
