Barrister Eric Omare -

Newly Elected President

IYC Worldwide




Press Release


This is to inform the general public that the official congress and elections of the Ijaw Youth Council was conducted successfully between the 2nd and 3rd of March 2017 at Burutu, Delta State.

This was conducted by the ELECO that was set up by the Udengs Eradiri led exco, the only body with the constitutional authority to carry out such action.

Mischief makers are plotting to carry out a parallel congress/ election to protect the interest of some politicians and past IYC leaders.

We call on Ijaw sons and daughters to ignore calls for a parallel congress as the IYC follows only one constitution and will not be used as a tool for the selfish interest of some politicians.

Haaaa Izon

Signed -

Barr Henry Iyalla,
Spokesman Ijaw Youth Council Worldwide
