THE Coordinator of Ijaw Monitoring Group, IMG, Comrade Joseph Evah, has described the JAMB report showing Bayelsa and Rivers states as the states with the highest incidence of exam malpractices as indication of danger signals ahead in the region.
The Niger Delta activist made the remark while receiving the National President of Niger Delta Student Government, Comrade Genesis Idikibiebuma and his executives at the Niger Delta Hall of fame in Lagos. He said that in a normal situation, the commissioners of education in the two states ought to resign from office with immediate effect, adding that the people of Niger Delta were still waiting for apology from the governors of the affected states and what they were doing to prevent such occurrence in future.
â€œThe JAMB report shows that all the Niger Delta states are educationally weak and there is no zeal to lay solid foundation for our children to make the best results in WAEC and JAMB.
“I want you student leaders to know that my generation has failed. You are to fight hard to save the future generation. Remember that almost all our politicians are not interested in development but to hold on to power as an hobby,â€ he said.
The former publicity secretary of Ijaw National Congress, INC, urged the student leaders to mobilize their fellow students to create awareness and challenge oil companies and politicians to do what was right with the resources in the region.
Responding, Comrade Idikibiebuma recounted the events that led to the formation of the umbrella body of all Niger Delta students by the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, and that the body could not make the desired progress unless the Niger Delta activist gives them the necessary support.â€
