THE Olu of Warri, His Majesty, Ogiame Ikenwoli, has revealed why the capital of Delta State was moved to Asaba by the Babangida administration instead of locating it in  Delta heartland of Warri.
He blamed this on the intransigence of the Istekiri people who said no during consultations with the people in Delta heartland. 

He  said: “Why are we being so treated unfairly and unjustly? It is because there is no unity among us. Delta is blessed, but because of primordial hatred, we don’t grow as we ought to. When Delta was to be created, we rejected because we didn’t feel loved. The state capital was to be in Warri, Itsekiri said no because of mutual suspicion. The government sees us as unserious. 
“During Jonathan’s era, no Itsekiri man was selected for the National Conference while others got multiple representations. It took Chief Tunde Smooth, an Ijaw with the new thinking of peace for collective unity, who wrote in the papers condemning the action. We then had a representative.”
