Delta-Ijaw has come out to urge other ethnic nationalities in the state to support an Ijaw candidate ahead of upcoming elections.

The meeting convened by elder statesman and former Minister of Police Affairs, Alaowei Broderick Bozimo, also supported the Okowa’s avowal that there is no agreement on power rotation in the state.

According to the group, other ethnic nationalities in Delta should do the needful because all the senatorial districts in the state have already produced governors.

Delta-Ijaw added that Ijaw should work in collaboration with other ethnic nationalities in the state to achieve the resolution of producing the next governor to take Delta to greater height.

A statement read, “In the spirit of fairness, equity and brotherhood, we appeal to the other ethnic nationalities of Delta State to support a candidate of Ijaw extraction to become the governor of Delta State in 2023.”

“Ijaw should work in collaboration with other ethnic nationalities in the state to achieve the resolution to produce the next governor of Delta State because we cannot do it alone.”

“In the present Delta State, the Ijaw massively supported the emergence of Olorogun Felix Ibru and Chief James Ibori from Urhobo ethnic nationality, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan from the Itsekiri ethnic nationality and Senator Ifeanyi Okowa from the Ika (Anioma) ethnic nationality as governors.”

“Even though there was no agreement on power rotation, all the three senatorial districts have produced the governor of Delta state.”

“The Ijaw of Delta State have been active players in the socio-economic and political affairs since the days of Western and Mid-Western regions, Bendel State and now Delta State.”

“Ijaw leaders were at the forefront of the struggle for the creation of Delta State from the defunct Bendel state. The Ijaw people have made huge sacrifice and contribution to the socio-economic sustenance of Delta State.”
