Former President of the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) Worldwide, Barr. Pereotubo Roland Oweilaemi has made critical case for an Ijaw Governor come 2023. The Liberator Newspaper can report.
The former president made the call earlier today via a statement posted on his personal Facebook timeline.
Barr. Oweilaemi, a revered Niger Delta Youth leader, a serious advocate of egalitarianism and a social crusader had particularly called on the Ijaw political leaders to begin the process of lobbying sister ethnic groups in the state for the Ijaws to produce the next Governor of the state.
The IYC chieftain had also appealed to His Excellency, the Governor of Delta State, Sen. Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa to consider the Ijaws on who succeeds him for the purpose of fairness come 2023.
In his words: “We must deploy every available logistics at our disposal to actualize the ijaw Governorship dream in Delta State. This includes lobbying other ethnic nationalities to see reasons with us on how imperatively important for us to produce the next governor to succeed Sen. Okowa for fairness, justice and equity . Remember, this is not a tea party. Anything worth doing is worth doing well. Unity is the watch word”.
