Delta 2023: Support Ijaw Gov Agenda, Eneware Urges Orubebe.

Eneware Emmanuel, a Delta State activist and youth advocate, has called on Godday Orubebe, the former Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, to support the ongoing Ijaw Governorship Agenda in the state ahead of the 2023 general elections.

“It is bad for Ijaw to betray Ijaw, given how marginalized and balkanized we are as a people in Nigeria,” Eneware, also known as the “Pentiger,” wrote in a letter to the former minister, copies of which were made available to journalists in Warri on Sunday.

He pleaded with Orubebe, a previous governorship aspirant in 2015, to forgive his kinsmen for betraying his ambition, especially at a time when the country’s president was an Ijaw citizen.

The activist said, “Let bygone be bygone and support the Ijaw Agenda. Our struggle and fight should be on the Nigeria Government and the various draconian laws that prevent us from controlling and enjoying our resources, and not Ijaw against Ijaw.

“It was very bad that your kinsmen and tribesmen never supported your ambition when we even have an Ijaw president that would have okayed it at once.

“But you are a leader par excellence, an elder statesman, a political icon, mentor, trailblazer worthy of emulation.

“I, therefore, appeal passionately to you as a patriotic and passionate Ijaw son to throw your weight in the Ijaw Governorship Agenda.

“Not for anyone else, but for the sake of God and the Ijaw people, who are the most brutalized, marginalised, balkanised, and neglected people in the Nigeria nation.”
