Samuel igbinosa:

I came accross an article written by jimoh babatunde with agency reporters on vanguardngr dated 2011/1/10 titled benin city: of traditions and culture and i quote and exarpt that cought my attention:"The first contact with the european was made by oba ewuare the great 1440-1473Ad when ruy de sequeira visited benin city in 1472, the portuguese came via the atlantic ocean and they finaly landed in gele gele sea port in benin nation. The gele gele sea port was from onwards used predominantly for thier legitimate trade with the benin nation. It is also on record that slaves(illegitimate trade) were also conveyed from the region via gele gele sea port to europe. Factually the portuguese and the british govt used the gele gele port extensively for more than half a century before the 1897 infamous experdition". And so this further buttress what i have been saying and the referencies i have been giving that from portuguese archives that the ruy de sequeirra entered benin city via gele gele, also i wonder why while passing through gele gele to benin city the capital of the benin empire in 1472 that he didnot come accross the so called ancient olodiama kingdom and visited the purpoted pere that existed before benin empire but instead passed through to benin city the capital of the benin empire, i wonder why the portuguese and the english trade merchants while the gele gele sea port didnot pay tributes to ijos or the purpoted ancient olodiama kingdom but paid tributes to benin for using gele gele sea port, i wonder why the portuguese and the english didnot enter into any treaty with ijos in the western delta and the purpoted ancient olodiama kingdom but sighned a treaty with benin, i wonder why the portuguese and british in thier archives refered to the land as gili gili a mispronounciation of gele gele or as gele gele and not as gelegelegbene which ijos claim is the aboriginal name of the place. Sometimes is good to unearth facts inorder to expose falsehood, i end it here.

My Edo brothers and sisters pls leave ijaw people to keep crying, we don't know them in Edo state nor do we recognise the so called Olodiama, Gelegele and Okomu is OBA of benin territory if they can't stay they should pack their load to bayelsa, I repeat ijaws in Edo state are tenant.. they have tried to get the attention of Oba of benin, and that of Edo state govt, our leaders didn't respond to any of their publications.. Our leaders silence is golden, let the dog keep barking, the lion still remains the king.. we won't recognise them.. but they try to crown another goat again in benin, this time around a quit notice will be given to them, to pack out of Edo state.. if ijaw thinks they have monopoly of violence, we will tell them, violence is our second name, will fight with the last drop of our blood for Edo state and our revered monarch and traditional institutions, we are waiting for the 21 days they gave to us, and the purported 5000 man march in benin to Oba of benin palace it will be so bloody in Edo state that day, heads and limbs will roll, every ijaw indignes is Gelegele will be ready for blood bath.. they will show us their strength and their so called egbesu that day.. we don't boost, our silence is golden but if provoken to war will use your bloods to clean Benin of every atrocities and abominations in benin.. and if anything happens to any Edo indignes in Gelegele and Okomu it will be met will dangerous retaliation every ijaws sons and daughters men and women even babies will pay dearly for it.. a word is enough for the wise..

I observed something a few days ago and I feel we should in unity,call on those in power to do smthing FAST about it..... I visited the creek(on a project) and had a stop over as is the case,in GHELEGHELE community!! I was shocked to find out that the community has a massive port that according to the natives and x-millitants,can actually accommodate as many ships as possible!!! I asked further why it is not in use,I was told that the govt are aware of the place but yet nothing has bn done!!! And my question and probably,many other Edolites that have had the opportunity of visiting this community----firstly,what is our OBA doing about the gheleghele port? Y is that place not in proper use? Does the govt and leaders of Edo realise the Economic boost the port will give the state and her environs? With the port in use,nothing too can stop the Airport here in Benin to become an International airport considering the number of our pple that travel out each day and the level of money transactions holding on each day btwn the pple of Edo and foreign pple! Warri has a port!! Have u been able to che
ck the Economic power that it brings into Delta? We r always engaged in sending one 'used' product or importing brand new stuffs to Benin,yet we go thru other states were each time we do so,the treasury of the said states are increased!!! We talk of lack of jobs for our youths, the port is waisting! Illegal bunkery is taking place there,youths, women,men are dying everyday of hunger-yet,there is a place soooo fertile but not in proper use!! Why won't millitants go in and out thru it? If the place was well utilised, will they remember to get violent?No!!! Pls,let us ALL find a way to raise this up b4 the Oba n the state govt who should in turn push it to the fed govt! If Enugu airport fit b International,port fit dey Warri, wetin Benin dey wait for? Dem sey na wetin person get e fit call I'm own o! Were do we stand in this???
