Ultimatum: Delta State Government, Protesting Youths Meet As Sterling Company Fails To Appear


With regard to the Ultimatum issued by the Ndokwa East Ijaw Nation Movement to the management of Sterling Exploration and Energy Production Company Limited over plan to cripple their operations following the company’s alleged refusal to hearken to their demands. The Liberator Newspapers Worldwide can report.

With a view of resolving the feud, the Delta State Ministry of Oil and gas had earlier today initiated a meeting between the company and the youths in Asaba to proffer solution to the matter.

However, it was learnt that while the Delta State Ministry of Oil and gas and key leaders of the Ndokwa East Ijaw Nation Movement were present during the meeting at Asaba, the Management of Sterling Exploration and Energy Production Company Limited was unable to show up but with a plea to reschedule another meeting.

A publication made by President of the Ndokwa East Ijaw Nation Movement, Comr. Ebolo Samuel via his official Facebook timeline reads below:

Earlier today, in company of Emmanuel Uti Esq , barrister & solicitor of Ndokwa/ijaw Youth movement, my working Secetary Hon. Sunday Okwuwa Ezechi , Representatives Of The Various LGAs, Youth leaders from various communities in Ndokwa, Met With The Delta state government through the commisionioner oil & gas Hon. Emmanuel Amgbaduba at Asaba, Delta state.

Prior to the expiration of the two-week ultimatum given to the Sterling global Company to press home our demands or experience total shutdown of all their activities on our river, we got notified officially from the office of Oil & gas for  the interest of Delta state government to midwife the process and ensure our demands are met.

To our utter dismay, the company in their usual nonechallant attitude gave baseless excuses why they couldn’t make it today, requested us to meet in another meeting to resolve all lingering issues…

Well, our request is simple ” attend to our demands or shutdown all activities in our river.

Peace is not the absence of conflict. Peace remains the presence of justice

The message is clear enough.

Ebolo Sam
President, Ndokwa East/Ijawnation Movement.
