“On the call for the sack of the Honourble Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, I want to say without fear or favour that the call never came from the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) Worldwide.
“I have the mandate of the Ijaw people and the Niger Delta people and I can say it never came from us. It should be disregarded. We have made a press release to that effect. It is in the newspapers, it is everywhere. I am saying this for the sake of emphasis that it did not come from I jaw Youth Council.
“I am the President of the Ijaw Youth Council who is passionate about the development of the Niger Delta and I am very optimistic and sure that Senator Godswill Akpabio as the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs is going to change the narrative of the Niger Delta region.”
