In discussing questions of the nature
we are concerned with here, involving opposing ethnic, communal interests
some tend to be prudish, and would rather want the subject to be referred
to only obliquely.To do this is like
“Hamlet” without the Prince.It is
to be in pain and yet feign to be a man who does not complain.Put
subjectively, you have a pain in your throat that threatens to silence
you for good; would you ask, and demand if necessary, the attention that
is due to you, or be silent in demure good
manners till you are past help?
it is tribalistic to keep referring to ‘the Itsekiris’ it is because the
Warri question has become rooted in tribalism or else so-called tradition
or custom transcending the laws of the land.Therefore,
this evil of our time is discussed by calling a spade and spade rather
that paying lip-service to its disapproval through generalisations that
actually paper over the problem without tackling it.
