President of Ijaw Youth Council, Barr. Oweilaemi Pereotubo has appealed to the Group Managing Director of NNPC, Dr. Maikanti Kacalla Baru for special consideration in the employment recruitment for youths of the Niger Delta region, particularly the Ijaws who have sacrificed for the enduring peace in the region.
Speaking to journalists yesterday, the President who commended the giant strides of the GMD and his management team for their relentless efforts at repositioning the corporation which has necessitated recruitment of more workforce, appealed that youths of oil producing communities and areas should be given priority attention considering the environmental pollution, pains and challenges these affected communities are suffering.
While speaking further, Barr. Oweilaemi said IYC is always ready to partner and also help in whichever areas it’s assistance is needed. He revealed to journalists that the relative peace in the Niger Delta is as a result of the collaborative efforts between IYC and other ethnic groups in the Niger Delta that have been engaging various youth groups to emphasize the overwhelming importance of peace.
