The apex socio cultural organization of Ijaw Nation, Ijaw National Congress (INC) has said it would blacklist sons and daughters who are thwarting it’s effort to galvanise support from other ethnic groups within Delta to produce an Ijaw man to govern the state in 2023.

INC, in a statement signed by it’s National Publicity Secretary, Engr. Ezonebi Oyakemeagbegha, ”It is very sad when we see such a level of betrayal within the Ijaw nation.”

The statement noted that the most docile Urhobo person will not declare that it is not the turn of the Urhobos but for the unscrupulous Ijaw man, because of pecuniary gain, personal aggrandizement and greed have lowered themselves before other ethnic nationalities.

“These Ijaw men and women who had been bought to do the spoiler role, are enemies within and are playing the role of Judas, as described in the Holy book. They will pay for it at the appropriate time”.
