2023 Delta : Delta Ijaw Progressive Movement Harp’s On Ijaw Agenda, Says Ijaw Agenda Is Superior To Any Individual Interest

…No Party Is More Of Ijaw Agenda Than The Other

 

Delta Ijaw Progressive Movement a political pressure group in the All Progressive Congress, APC, has throw their weight on the “Delta Ijaw Governor Agenda”, says no party is more of Ijaw than the other and Ijaw Agenda is superior to any individual interest or agenda.

According to the national coordinator of the group, Comrade Assor Samuel, “with kin observations of polical activities in Ijaw Nation, Delta Ijaw Progressive Movement (DIPM) called on Ijaw leaders to be conscious in pursuing the Ijaw Agenda as we in the APC also believe in the Ijaw Agenda.

This Ijaw Agenda is a common aspiration for a better Ijaw Nation, and no party is more of Ijaw than the other because we in the APC in Delta State have keenly observed the attitude of Ijaw leaders looking at the APC as anti-Ijaw party or seeing our party members as betrayals to the Ijaw nation aspirations.

“According to the National coordinator of Delta Ijaw Progressive Movement (DIPM),”I was at the venue of a meeting called at Warri recently and observed that all guests present at the meeting to discuss the “Delta Ijaw Governor Agenda” was  a gathering of like-minded Delta Ijaws of a particular aspirant of a particular party. So l decided to leave the venue of the meeting. In the light of the above scenario, we are calling on Ijaw leaders to be very conscious while agitating for the Ijaw Aspiration or Agenda because we in the APC will not see a situation where the Ijaw Nation will not benefit from the APC led Federal Government.

“We believe that the PDP led State Government have not done much for the Ijaw people in Delta State despite our support and urge Ijaw political leaders to interface with MDA’s to attract people-oriented projects to their constituencies as Senator Ovie Omo-Agege is doing in his constituency.

Ijaw Agenda should not just only be a campaign strategy during elections, but the leaders should also have the Ijaw conscious of Ijaw development after elections.

Ijaw consciousness should be a yardstick to judge the performance or failure of our political leaders and not to be a campaign strategy during elections.
