(By Iheanyi Ezinwo) –

The leadership of Ogbakor Ikwerre Cultural Organization, World Wide has frowned against the purported installation of a new Paramount Ruler/ Nne Nwe Ali Omagwa by some members of Ohna Omagwa while Ogbakor Ikwerre was still arbitrating on the matter.

The reservation was expressed by Prof. Emenike Wami, President General of Ogbakor Ikwerre Cultural Organization, World Wide at 231st Convention of Ogbakor Ikwerre in Rumuji town, Emohua Local Government Area of Rivers State on Sunday, 25 December, 2022.


In his address  at the event that had in attendance former leaders of Ogbakor Ikwerre, prominent sons and daughters of Ikwerre, and delegates from Reo, Esila, Opa, Rio as well as from Oyigbo/Bayelsa/Lagos branches of Ogbakor Ikwerre Cultural Organization, World Wide, the President General commended the leaders and people of Rumuji for accepting to willingly host the last Convention of Ogbakor Ikwerre in 2022, while cautioning that they should not allow the presence of companies carrying out business activities on their land not to divide them.


He recognised the restoration of peace in esthwhile troubled communities in Ikwerre land and thanked  His  Excellency, Executive Governor of Rivers State, Ezenwo Nyesom Wike, for his timely interventions.


Prof. Emenike Wami further disclosed that Ogbakor Ikwerre has eventually joined in the suit on referendum being championed by a pro – Biafran group inorder to let the world know that Ikwerre is not Ibo, even as he regreted the deplorable condition of Obiri Ikwerre, and hopes that Governor Nyesom Wike, an Ikwerre son, will come to the aid of Ogbakor before the end of his tenure in 2023.

He encouraged Ikwerre sons and daughters to participate in legitimate economic activities, while promising to make  public the outcome of on going investigations on marginal fields and possible business opportunities.

The President General, who noted that the 2023 elections was less then two months away, advised every eligible voter to collect his PVC and guide it jealously.


Meanwhile, in a welcome address, the  Paramount Ruler of Rumuji, HRH, Ohna Christian Okachineke Elechi, had lauded Ogbakor for coming to  Rumuji.


He lamented  that his community was divided because of the fierce fight for supremacy over the control of benefits coming from companies operating  in his dormain, and pleaded for the intervention of Ogbakor.


Earlier, the Executive Council members of Ogbakor had paid a courtesy visit on the Paramount Ruler of Rumuji, HRH, Ohna Christian Okachineke Elechi, and surprisingly, the Paramount ruler used the opportunity to honour the President General with the Chieftaincy Title of: Eze Ochi Ikwerre Num – Nma 1.
