Stop Distracting Amaechi, Ikwerre Youths Warn Ijaw Youths

By Isaac Olamikan
Pan Ikwerre Youth group, Ikwerre Youth  Movement International(IYM) has faulted a query from its  Ijaw counterpart, Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) on the Minister for Transportation, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi warning the Ijaw youths to stop distracting the minister.
IYM in a statement signed by its Director of Publicity,  Dr.Dike Bekwele, said IYC’s query on Amaechi is childish and unacceptable.
The Ijaw youth had earlier queried the Minister of Transportation for his silence on the non-constitution of the Niger Delta Development Commission(NDDC), a development the Ikwerre youth body described as reckless.
IYM further stated that Amaechi is not a noise maker and should be allowed to concentrate on the job assigned to him by President Muhammadu Buhari, adding that it is the prerogative of Mr. President to constitute a new body for the NDDC, taking into account the rot at the commission as evident in the forensic report submitted to him.
IYM further stated that the Ijaw youths are economical with the truth as the minister has been an advocate of power rotation in Rivers State.
“You don’t talk like a child. A man who doesn’t know what happened before he was born is to remain a child. Amaechi supported and sponsored the emergence of an Ijaw Governor in Rivers State in 2015, yet the Ijaw youths preferred another Ikwerre candidate.
“In 2019, he supported the emergence of another Ijaw, as Rivers governor yet the Ijaw youths all went to sleep.
“In 2023, Amaechi has again thrown his weight behind the emergence of a Rivers Governor of Ijaw extraction and yet you are speaking from both sides of the mouth.
“Please put your house in order and support Amaechi’s quest for an Ijaw Governor,” the IYM concluded.
IYM is a Pan Ikwerre youth group representing the four Ikwerre speaking Local Government Areas of Rivers State.
