MR. Ebikeme Clark, aspirant for House of Representatives and son of Chief Edwin Clark, South-South leader, weekend, put smiles on the faces of the internally displaced persons of Ayakoromor, following a clash between Joint Task Force, JTF, and renegade militant, John Togo at the Ogbe-Ijoh, Delta State refugee camp, as he gave food items and cash gifts worth million of naira, when he joined them in Christmas celebration.
Clark also gave food items worth several million of naira to members of his constituency covering the 11 wards in the spirit of Christmas.
Clark flanked by supporters while making the presentation, called on the Federal Government to call the JTF to order and make haste to rehabilitate the displaced persons.
“I came here to celebrate Christmas with you. I know this is not where you are supposed to be staying to celebrate but God knows why. I am aware that NEMA and many others have come to give you food. We want the JTF to be proficient and to defend innocent persons and not to cause destruction and hardship.”
“It cost so much to build a house in the riverine community, the Federal Government should make haste and not play politics with resettling these people. It should not be like Odi and Gbaramatu, which still remain in ruin after promises of rebuilding it,” he added.
Clark advised John Togo to embrace peace by accepting the amnesty of the Federal Government.
