The Convener of the Ijaw Unity conference, deputy leader of the Egbesu brotherhood and leader of the Ijaw Youths Political Alliance Comrade Ellington Bakumor endorses the serving executive secretary of the Nigerian Content Development Monitoring Board (NCDMD) for reappointment.
“Sometimes ago in 2018 we launched a campaign to support the Ijaw agenda ensuring that our sons and daughters of Ijaw nation are found in every strata of Government ensuring that Ijaw is not left out in the scheme of things in the Country, Nigeria given the fact that Nigeria feeds on our Oil, and Other Natural resources found in our region , we also launched a campaign at the same time to make sure we pressure Government to also sack Ijaw leaders who are not doing well and replaced them with other capable hands from Ijaw too which we succeeded in most of them . We have in the same vein observed the person of Engr Wabote in managing the NCDMD, and so far so good it has been nothing less than great and commendable with positive reports and testimonies coming from his office.
“We were shocked upon seeing some “supposed” publications from MEND and other faceless groups , it is not a secret that MEND no longer exists , and Jomo Gbomo is long dead , we also know that there are certain elements seeking their personal and selfish gain and always opposing whatever doesn’t benefit them directly.
“We want to call on the Minister of State petroleum Our leader Timipere Sylva to ignore such calls, that Neither MEND or Jomo Gbomo exists, that Engr Wabote has been the best hand handling that office at this time, and that majority of Ijaw Youths, Ijaw leaders and even Ex Mend generals are solidly behind Engr Wabote .
