(NAN) The Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) has expressed disappointment in Gov. Sheriff Oborevwori’s one year in office, for none performance in Ijaw land.

The call was made in a statement signed and issued to newsmen in Yenagoa, on Monday by Amb. Princewill Binebai, Spokesman Ijaw Youth Council (IYC).

According to the IYC, May 29th 2024 will mark exactly one year that His Excellency, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori will be ruling over the good people of Delta State for a year as a democratically elected governor of the state.

The Spokesman said, the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) Worldwide will not accept any further political manipulation, strangulation, and underdevelopment of the Ijaws in Delta State, particularly in the Oborevwori led administration.

“The IYC at this point, is sounding it clearly that the Ijaw people in all the states that they are balkernized into are not strangers in these States.

“Hence they deserved to be treated fairly and blessed with the developmental vision and agenda of the state across all fronts and proper political inclusion.

“As a council, we thought that as the governor is gearing up to celebrate his one year in office on May 29 2024 which will be few days from now.

” The Ayakoromo bridge would have crossed and would have been counted as an achievement in his one year in office but that did not happen as the bridge is still struggling to come to limelight,” the statement reads.

According him, The Ijaws in Delta State are not only contributing politically in shaping the state but are also the economic life wire of the state and beyond.

“Hence they have every right to demand for the proper development of the Ijaw area. The call for the development of Ijaw land in Delta State and fair treatment should not be treated with Kids glove.

“Hitherto, Ijaws are wondering why in the past one year, they are yet to get any commensurate developmental attention despite their immense contribution to the election of Oborevwori as governor of the State.

“While other parts of Delta seem to be recording some level of development, the Ijaw area remains stagnant and highly unattended to.

“From the look of things, the Ijaws are the most marginalized ethnic nationality under the governor Oborevwori led administration in Delta State.

” As there is no reasonable project to point at within the last one year. This is really sad considering their political participation that brought in Oborevwori as governor of our dear State.

“The Ijaw people have called for the urgent establishment of the Coastal Areas Development Agency (CADA) just as the Warri/Uvwie & Environs Special Area Development Agency and Asaba Capital Development Agency were established by the administration of Okowa.

“The Ijaws want the urgent establishment of CADA to take care of the developmental needs of the Coastal parts of Delta State. The call for the urgent establishment of CADA must not be treated with levity this time around,” it said.

According to IYC, Burutu LGA should have two commissioners in the state executive Council because Burutu has one federal and two State Constituencies.

Hence Burutu should produce two commissioners. The IYC cannot think of any logic that places some local governments in Delta that are given two commissionership slots. We want this political anomaly corrected as soon as possible.
