Speaking further, President Princewill had on behalf of the Ijaw intellectual group expressed optimism that Tompolo will handle the job to the bewilderment of all in Nigeria, stating that Tompolo is not new in such job.

Meanwhile, Binebai had called on sons and daughters of Niger Delta, particularly the Ijaws to be more united, stressing that there should be no internal bickering.
