Reactions to Ologhe Ebelle Formation Piece by G.A. Iruobe

[2/6/2020, 12:22 AM] OL IZEBHOKHAI RALPH: Thanks Gabriel for this wonderful piece. It is Worth publishing into a book. But before you do that a few enlightenments need to be done. 1. The terms aboriginal and migrant sets of inhabitants. Let it be known that while Idumhun Ebor are of Nkwani people from around Utagbunor,  Idumhun Esan as the implies, are of Esan origin. It is true Idumhun Ebor people got to Ologhe first. 2. Idumhun Esan particularly Azagbaghide and Areghan are actually the arobomieni which explains why the UKHURE the symbol of authority remains with those two clans. 3. The odiowele who refused to installed at Idumhun Ebor may have been misunderstood. He maintained that since Idumhun Ebor and Idumhun Esan share the same laws ( aiwa emhin  ne gbe). Idumhun Ebor can take an Idumhun Esan’s wife without consequences from the gods (elimhin gbor). He maintained that if we must be one we should be fully integrated with the same do s and don’ts. He said how could he be with a people who take Esans’ wives at will without consequences. His point which I personally agree with is “bha gia gha waimhen ne gbe”.

[2/6/2020, 3:29 AM] Courage Ebhonu: A piece that transcends modernity and places culture and tradition at the epicentre of human interaction.  Culture is the  center of life: a people without culture and tradition are a lost people. This writer clearly marries culture with communal cohesion in a manner that teaches and entertains. It is often said that a man who does not know what happened before he was born remains forever a child. Thank u for sharing the histo-cultural background to what we do in Ologhe and why so too. This is very informing. Thank u sir🙏🏻

About Gabriel Iruobe

I have a background in Sociology from the University of Ibadan. Although, an industrial sociologist, my interest in rural societies have grown over the years. The sociological insight gained in my school days have had me define development in a fashion slightly different from an orthodox orientation. Studying or researching on rural life is quite easy for me since I spent my early life in a rural setting, viewing all the attractions often overlooked by the urban elites. If the rule of sustainable development is to be followed, no aspect of the world's cultural heritage is to be ignore or neglected. This is my obsession.
