MY BIRTHDAY WISH: A call  on Deltans  to support  the Ijaw  Governorship Project. 

I want  to thank God almighty for his mercies and kindness upon my  life, for making me to see another day of my  birth. I equally want  to salute the  numerous members of the Delta Ijaw 2023 Governorship Advocacy Group (GIGAG), for  your  believe and trust in  my leadership.

On  this  special  day of my  birth, I call on  all Ijaws  to  let go  of their grievances to support  the  Ijaw  Governorship project in  Delta State. The  Ijaws  have  supported  other  ethnic nationalities in the state  to  become governors  in time  past, including the  Urhobos of Delta Central senatorial district. Therefore,  I appeal to every other ethnic  nationality to give  the  Ijaws  the  desired support to produce the governor of the  State. 

To our brothers in  the  Central,I want  to  passionately appeal  to them  to drop  their  Governorship ambition  to  support the  Ijaws of  Delta South  Senatorial District for  the  purpose  of equity, fairness and justice. The  Urhobos and  have govern Delta State in  the  time past . 

I also want  to  appeal  to  the  Governor of Delta State to  give the Ijaws the  enabling environment to  succed  him. Governor Ifeanyi  Okowa should  remember  that  the  Delta  Central  never  supported  him  or the  Delta  North in  the  2015 PDP Primaries  elections, they  all  supported Hon. David Edevbie because  they (Urhobo) said  there  is  no zoning. 

Signed:

Amb. Okporu Augustine (JP), former Chairman of south-South Caucus of the Nigerian Youth Parliament, National Assembly,  Abuja  and  D.G, Delta Ijaw 2023 Governorship Advocacy Group(GIGAG)
