National Executive Council (NEC) of the most revered Ijaw Youth Council has heartily congratulated the proponents and symbols of the Niger Delta struggle, Prof. Nelson Brambaifa on his well deserved appointment as the Acting Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
The Ijaw Youth Council also thank President Muhammadu Buhari for listening to Ijaw people and doing the needful by appointing an outstanding Bayelsan to the exalted office of the Managing Director of the NDDC.
A statement made available to BIGHT NEWS by the President of the Ijaw Youth Council, Barr. Oweilaemi Pereotubo, while urging Mr. President to go a step further by confirming Prof. Nelson Brambaifa as the substantive Managing Director, described Brambaifa as a capacity leader and a team player who believe in the growth and development of the people of the Niger Delta.
Mr. Oweilaemi while wishing the Bayelsan born ijaw leader a huge success in his new office appealed to all sons and daughters of the Ijaw Nation to give the New Managing Director the necessary support that will help him to succeed. Adding that, the in fighting attitude is unhealthy for the growth of Niger Delta.
His words: “we wish to appeal to all sons and daughters of the Ijaw Nation to give the New Managing Director the necessary support that will help him to succeed. It is not good for our great people to continue our infightings. NDDC is the direct result of the sweat and blood of our great peopl, but it is so unfortunate that other ethnic groups in the Niger Delta have benefited far more than Ijaw people because of the culture and tradition of fighting ourselves, while other ethnic groups are developing and empowering their own people. This culture must stop if we must move forward as a great people.
“We wish Prof. Brambaifa and his team a huge success in their new assignments and responsibilities.” Oweilaemi added.
