Itsekiri Amnesty Programme The True Story..!

I have grown into an adult with the knowledge that Chief Rita Lori-Ogbebor had always stood with the “itsekiri people”. Yes the Itsekiri people because that is what the Igba of the Warri Kingdom had always stood for,  and her activities of activism has so much been influenced by this just cause which has made her the darling of all common itsekiri indigenes.  Her utterances has always been a rallying point for all well-meaning itsekiri sons and daughters and based on that she has gain our respect and recognition both within and outside the shores of Nigeria.
However, her recent publication in one of the Nigerian daily newspaper (Vanguard, 3rd of May 2014) may prove to become one of unforeseen embarrassment as it was not based on true
facts which has always been her modus operandi, or maybe there might be some yet to be verified motives behind this said publication.
Based on the said publication, she had claimed that Hon. Reyenieju, Member Federal House of Representative representing Federal Constituency was lying to the itsekirir people by claiming he had  secured 500 slots for the Itsekiri nation under the Federal Government’s Amnesty Programme under which he said almost 100 Itsekiri have benefitted overseas post graduate scholarships while 25 are about embarking on aeronautics and pilot training in Germany and 250 for local skills acquisition among other benefits and I quote;
What can he point to have given to the Itsekiri he represents? He is forging figures of overseas scholarship under amnesty to deceive the people because he wants third tenure. Who are these beneficiaries? It is not enough to claim figures. I challenge him to list the beneficiaries.”
I am personally writing to respond from the United Kingdom where I have been based for the last Five years to suggest that on this occasion, Chief Rita Lori-Ogbebor is not right about her facts. This is not about politics as I am neither a politician nor have I been a beneficiary of any scholarship or benevolence because I am an Itsekiri indigene. I am responding to these claims because I have always followed with keen interest the socio-economic and political development within the itsekiri nation.
I am currently a final year Ph.D researcher at the University of Leeds and I can say that I have four (4) students from the itsekiri nationality studying with me at the University of Leeds. All of which are studying oil and gas engineering related courses. Two are studying for their master’s degree while the other two are studying for their Ph.D degree. I have also managed to source the list to back up Honourable Daniel Reyenieju’s claims and indeed he is right on this occasion. It is also to my the best of my knowledge that this scholarship opportunity was spread across almost all of the Itsekiri communities which is very commendable from Hon. Daniel Reyenieju and his team. Therefore when our politicians are right let’s celebrate them and when they are wrong let us not fail to scold them but objectively too.
I would also like to use this medium to state that as a member of the House of representative, Hon. Daniel Reyenieju has done relatively well from information I can gather from social media interaction him in person and from other people. But we must not forget too quickly who this man is and how much he has sacrificed for us all as a nation, especially during the crisis in Warri and also he is just a single man in a National assembly that is made up of over 500 parliamentarians. Hence the job to influence projects to his constituency is not as easy as it is to write on paper, including the Frederal Government amnesty scholarship. We need to be very objective when giving a scorecard to this honourable parliamentarian.
