ljaw Seeks Revival Of Sea Ports In Niger Delta

ljaw Progressive Union of Aborigines has called on the federal government to urgently reactivate the ports in the Niger Delta area, including Warri, Sapele, Burutu and Calabar Ports.

Their submissions are contained in a letter signed by Ikhide Ehighelua of the Ikhide Ehighelua & Co Chambers, which was addressed to the minister of Niger Delta Affairs and copied to highly placed representatives of the people in the National Assembly including Senator Ede Dafinone, Senator Joel Onowhakpor,  Senator Ned Nwoko, Hon Benedict Etanabene, Hon Francis Waive and Hon Nicholas Mutu among others.

Part of the statement reads, “We are solicitors acting on behalf of The Registered Trustees of ljaw Progressive Union of Aborigines hereafter referred to as our client and we write on their instructions as follows:

“Our clients are major stakeholders in the Niger Delta Affairs especially as it relates to the environs in Delta State.

“It has been observed by our clients that over the years, successive governments have neglected and undermined the development of Warri and environs, which same neglect appears to be replicated across the Niger Delta region.

“The contribution of this region to the economic well-being of this Nation cannot be overemphasised, yet it appears that their reward has been neglected. (Leadership news)
