We the people of Esanland, in a bid to protect ourselves from the continued neglect and orchestrated destruction of our economy and society by both the state and federal governments, considering also that our legislators in both state and federal government have failed us by their conspiratorial silence over the years, we have resolved to protest to the nation and the world at large and wish to serve this notice of an impending Total Shut Down of the Ewu Junction to vehicular movement from Independence Day to October 3 2022.
Take Notice that the resilient Esan People would block all vehicular movements through Benin Abuja Road and Uromi-Ewu Road at the the famous Ewu Junction for three days and three nights from October 1 to 3 2022. This Protest is to draw government’s attention to the nearly a decade dilapidation and government-abandonment-induced carnage on the entire Esan roads, and the very deplorable state of the Ekpoma axis, Irrua axis, Uromi axis and the Ewu Junction that has caused hundreds of death tolls, fire outbreaks and ghastly accidents.
Edo State and the Federal Governments are by this notice informed that to avoid this irrevocable decision of the Esan People to shut down the road they should use this two weeks notice to immediately effect, at least, a palliative measure on the road they have abandoned for over nine painful years.
The public who may be inconvenienced by this desperate measure are by this notice advised to find alternative routes or near with our painful but necessary surgical procedures to resolving the perennial problems of very bad and dangerous roads in Esanland.
Everyone living in Esanland are by this notice invited to move over to Ewu Junction bringing playing, sleeping and cooking materials and if they like let them bring all the armies of Nigeria and Congo to drive us out, we shall surely disobey but without violence.
Enough is Enough, Oneghe Osele!
