Ogbako Umu Mbieri, Decries Lack Of Unity Among Mbieri People
Worried by the dwindling prestige, economic, political and developmental fortunes of mbieri people, elicited by lack of leadership, unity of purpose and the inability of its people to sustain the ideals and legacies of its fathers, a socio-economic organization, Ogbako Umu Mbieri, has identified lack of unity as a major factor affecting the development and growth of the area.
Speaking yesterday, at its emergency meeting at Eziome Mbieri, the President of the group, Mr. Emeka Ahaneku, noted that selfishness, greed and lack of unity has turned all facets of life upside down in the area.
According to him, this was one of the major reasons youth and women unemployment, bad road network, water scarcity, poor education disease, poverty and criminality has taken toll on the people, despite the deluge of wealthy men and government functionaries across the 28 villages that make up the mbieri ancient kingdom.
Specifically, Ahaneku stressed the need for the revival of the mbieri kindred spirit and admonished leaders to eschew greed, selfishness and spirit of rivalry and suppression among each other, insisting that no society could fully achieve its developmental and political objectives without unity.
Also speaking, the Publicity secretary of the group, Mr. Darlington Irobi, maintained that there must be a nexus between those residing outside the communities and those residing within the communities for any meaningful development to take place.
He condemned the inability of successive governments to construct quality roads across the 28 villages of Mbieri ancient kingdom, saying it was lamentable that men could be so wicked to their fellow men.
The group, in a statement after the meeting, urged the people to partner with the group, in order to kick start the change revolution in the various villages across the ancient kingdom. They also advised the people to come out from the wishful thinking that any political party or individual can change the fortunes of Mbieri people.
