Press Release

IJAW YOUTH COUNCIL (IYC) WORLD WIDE
April 11th, 2017.
Press release

The attention of the national executive council of the Ijaw Youth Council World Wide (IYC) led by its President, Eric Omare has been drawn to a newspaper publication on the Vanguard newspaper of 11th of April, 2017, page 13; that the Ijaw Youth Council has elected a new executive council in Okrika and that the Inspector General of Police was petitioned to the effect that the Unity convention in Okrika was a gathering of the members of the Niger Delta Avengers.

 

It must be noted that the immediate past president of the Ijaw Youth Council, Udengs Eradiri concluded the 7th National Convention of the Council on the 1st to 3rd of March 2017 in Burutu, Delta State where a legitimate exco’s was duly voted for by thousands of Ijaw Youths and Delegates. The outcome of that election is the Barr. Eric Omare led executive council which took over power from Engr. Comrade Udengs Eradiri.

We irrevocably dismiss reports on the newspaper that the Inspector General of Police was petitioned to the effect that the Unity convention in Okrika was a gathering of the members of the Niger Delta Avengers. Those that gathered at Okrika only wants to weep up sympathy from the general public and incite Ijaw against the IYC President, Eric Omare.

 

We call on the Federal Government, State Government, Inspector General of Police and the general public to disregard those illegal persons, masqueraders and impostors whose agenda is inimical to the good people of Niger Delta Region.


In conclusion, the Eric Omare led IYC executive shall adopt a non-violent approach to issues as the matter is pending before a court of competent jurisdiction in Bayelsa State High Court and until stated otherwise, Barr. Eric Omare remains the authentic 7th National President of the Ijaw Youth Council.

Signed for the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) worldwide:
Barr. Henry Iyalla

National Spokesman.
