A group operating under the aegis of Ijaw Defenders Mandate (IDM) have lauded the sterling leadership qualities of Amb. Dr. Comr. Shedrack Agediga, Executive Director, Planing, Research and Statistics (PRS), Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (DESOPADEC ).

Shedrack Agediga as a direct representation of Okowa at the grass root level in Delta State and beyond, stressing that appointing Agediga as ED, PRS, DESOPADEC was one of the greatest appointment that has been so beneficial to the Ijaw people.
According to him, there are so many striking similarities in terms of leadership between Governor Okowa and his political son Agediga.
Commenting on the personality of Agediga, John Gbozimor said he is pure in heart and a detribalized politician, stressing that he is a blessing to whoever that comes his way, adding that he most times displeases himself to please others.
The group maintained that while it is not a political group, it has followed the activities and leadership qualities of Agediga for years now, stressing that the commendation has become necessary.
