“It would have been necessary that in such a meeting where important issues that affects the multi ethnic nationality in the South-South, South-East and South-West tagged southern Nigeria are discussed, all the ethnic groups would have been invited.

“But in this case, we the Urhobos are not invited, rather few individuals gathered themselves together and styled themselves as southern Nigeria leaders.

“The Urhobo nation cannot be part of some person or group of persons who have personal scores to settle with others and so should not to drag other ethnic nationalities to their perceived differences coming under southern leaders to seek relevance.

“Like as we have said, we were not consulted, indeed the Urhobo were not in the meeting. Those who convened the meeting were not true representatives of the south-south, south-east and south west leaders.
