IYC congratulates Chief Timipre Sylva, Godswill Akpabio, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi and Festus Keyamo SAN on their well deserved appointments as a ministers in the government of President Mohammadu Buhari.
The trio of Chief Sylva, Akpabio and Amaechi as former governors who understand the rudiments of public governance are square pegs in a square holes.
Aimilarly, Festus Keyamo, who has attained the zenith of the revered legal profession is the best man for the job. We thank Mr. President for seeing these our illustrious sons worthy to serve in his cabinet.
As the father of the nation whose onerous duty is to unite every section of the country, we implore President Buhari to look into the Ijaw nation and appoint more credible hands to serve in the various capacities.
Considering our economic contributions to the nation’s coffer, one ministerial position is not enough for us. After all, that is even our constitutional right.
As for our son, we charge him to run an inclusive government beyond party lines for the purpose of uniting the Ijaw nation on one hand and being the bridge between the Niger Delta people and the federal government so as to sustain the existing peace in the region on the other hand.
Chief Timipre should use this appointment to bridge the gap of distrust among Ijaw people in the Niger Delta. He is the only eye of the Ijaw man in this Buhari’s government.
IYC pledges to synergize with him in order to promote social harmony among the Ijaw people as well as attracting development to our communities.
It is, therefore, our earnest call on Chief Timipre Sylva to use his new office to make friends among his Ijaw people.
The interest of the Ijaw nation should be his watchword as IYC will always stand by him to support his programmes and policies in his ministry.
Once again congratulation to a worthy son of Ijaw nation.
Pereotubo R. Oweilaemi, Esq.,
President, IYC worldwide
