The newly installed Eghare-Aja of Ugborodo of a major oil-bearing community at Escravos in Warri South-West Local Government Area of Delta State, Daniel  Galassi, has called for stakeholders meeting for formal deliberation with the international oil companies on the Petroleum Industry Act as it affects the host community.

The Eghare-Aja, who is also the Chairman, Council of Elders and Administrative Head of the riverine community, announced this shortly after he was formally unveiled to the public at Ode-Ugborodo.

The PUNCH gathered that the parley is scheduled for September 17, 2022 at Ode-Ugborodo community.

The Eghare-Aja said, “The stakeholders meeting is being organised so that the communities can have a way forward with all the international oil companies, which operate in the five clans comprising Ugborodoland, namely Ode-Ugborodo, Ogidigben, Ajidaido, Madangho and Igaghala.”

He expressed his appreciation to the entire sons and daughters of Ugborodo community for the confidence reposed in him, promising not to let them down.

Speaking earlier, a prominent Itsekiri leader, the derobed Ologbotsere of Warri Kingdom, Chief Ayiri Emami, noted that the unveiling ceremony held inside the Ode-Ugborodo Town Hall, was organised to complete the process of the installation of the new Eghare-Aja which took place a day earlier at the traditional ancestral home.

The ceremony featured Pa Benson Omafele, the Olaja Orori of Ugborodoland and Prince Perry Ate, the Igbakoh, joining Chief Ayiri Emami in unveiling the new Eghare-Aja, who became the Chairman, Council of Elders and Administrative Head of the riverine community.

Emami advised the newly-unveiled traditional head to bring together all those who were agitated in the process of his emergence “to ensure enduring peace, development and progress of the community.”

He also charged the entire community to “queue behind the new Egharaja of Ugborodo and work together for the interest of the community.”

Specifically, he enjoined aggrieved indigenes to jettison their grievances and collaborate in the overall interest of all, just as he pledged to continue to support in the development processes in the community.
