Bayelsa: Stay Away From Today’s Kaiama “Declaration”, IYC Tells YouthsLatest News, News Sunday, May 31st, 2015
The Ijaw Youth Council (Central Zone), has called on youths of the zone to disregard and stay away from a purported congress meeting of the IYC scheduled for today (Sunday May 31 2015) in Kaiama, Headquatres of Koklokuma/Opokuma Local Government area of Bayela State.
The Chairman of IYC Zone, Bobolayefa Owoupele in an early morning statement condemned the said meeting in its entirety, describing it as “illegal and capable of derailing and undermining the rejuvenation efforts of the Ijaw nation, after the sad defeat of Dr. Goodluck Jonathan in the last presidential election.”
According to him, congress meetings of the IYC, central zone are supposed to be convened by him, in conjunction with relevant officers of the IYC “and not by faceless individuals, who do not mean well for the government and the people of the State.”
“The police has been informed of the proposed illegal congress meeting; the youths should therefore stay away and not allow themselves to be used by persons, who are only out to exploit them for their selfish political ambitions.”
The IYC Central zonal chairman added that, the action is a direct affront on Bayelsa and the Ijaw nation, especially when the Ijaw nation is seeking greater relevance in the polity.
