The Ijaw Youth Council, IYC, has condemned Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike’s use of derogatory comments against the Ijaw National Council over their demand for the release of the detained lawmaker, Hon. Farah Dagogo.

Spokesperson of the IYC, Comr. Ebilade Ekerefa in a statement yesterday, described Wike’s comment as “insulting and unacceptable.”

According to Ebilade, such disrespectful comment by Governor Wike was the height of his prolonged disdain for the Ijaw nation as a whole and Rivers Ijaw people in particular since he became governor of the state.

He noted that its only ‘sin’ was its demand alongside its parent organ, the Ijaw National Congress (INC), for the release of an Ijaw son, Hon. Farah Dagogo.

He, therefore, called on Ijaw delegates not to support Gov. Wike in the forthcoming Presidential Primaries of the People’s Democratic Party.

Part of his statement reads,

​”…This “thunder” did not fire the former president when, despite all odds, made him the choice of the Peoples Democratic Party in Rivers State against the wishes of other competent Ijaw aspirants in the state.

For him, all those that made him, including Goodluck Jonathan and the people of Rivers State are in his pocket and can be insulted at will.”

We, therefore, call on our people to see Governor Wike as an enemy of the Ijaw Nation. We urge Ijaws all over the world to speak against this tyrannical behavior of Wike”

We also call on our Ijaw brothers that are delegated in his party not to cast their votes for him during the presidential primaries as this will be viewed as a betrayal of our heritage.”

Suffice it to say that if a governor can cast aspersion on an entire ethnic nationality, what would become of him as president of the most populous black nation on the planet?”
