On his part, Ijaw leader and Regent of Ogbe-Ijoh Kingdom, Warri South-West of Delta, Chief Samson Mamamu, said the confab erred in not recommending a new state for the Ijaw people.

Chief Mamamu, a three-time chairman, Western Zone, of the Ijaw National Congress, INC, who addressed newsmen in Warri, said: “I do not doubt the integrity of the confab and the ability of its members, but it is strange that they are talking of 18 additional states and no consideration is being made for Ijaws. Toru-Ebe, which comprises Ijaws of Delta, Edo and Ondo States was proposed 18 years ago.”
