  • ‘Tinubu assured me of protection of Itsekiri interests’ – Chief Ayiri Emami

  • The Ologbotsere of Warri Kingdom, Chief Ayiri Emami, on Friday said President Bola Tinubu had assured him of the protection of the interests of the Itsekiri people.

    Emami disclosed this in a chat with newsmen at his residence at Ubeji Community in Delta State during the celebration of his 6th anniversary as Ologbotsere of Warri Kingdom.

    He said the few times he had to discuss with the President about the ports in Koko and Warri as well as the roads and developments in Itsekiri land, Tinubu assured him that all will be addressed squarely.

    You know my own boss. My father and the father of the nation,the President of the federal republic of Nigeria. He just assumed office and there are a lot of issues in the office that he is tackling.

    “But the few minutes I had to spend with him, I did not discuss my own personal interests. The issues I discussed had to do with the interests of Itsekiri nation and he had assured he will look into it.

    “So, as it concerns Itsekiri, I don’t deviate.”

    Emami added that he does not want to be a minister or board member under the Tinubu administration.

    “I don’t want to be a minister. Neither do I want to be a board member.”

    He vowed to continue to pursue the interests of the Itsekiri at the federal level.

    If I go there, first, it has to be the interests of Itsekiri. How it affects our ports, how it affects the road, how it affects the development of the Itsekiri people and the environment.”
