Ijaw groups condemn attack on factional APC campaign team

By Emma Amaize

 THE Ijaw People Development Initiative, IPDI, and Ogbe – Ijoh Transformation and Development Ambassadors, OTDA, in Delta State, have criticized the attack on the factional senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Mr Temisan Omatseye, by ex-militants.

Leaders of the two groups, Messrs Austin Ozobo and Godwin Aken, in a statement, however, said the onslaught carried out on Burutu River in the state, had no political undertone, adding that the ex-militants were only looking for personal benefits from politicians in the state.

They warned them not to ridicule the Ijaw ethnic nationality and the ruling party, PDP in the area.

The groups said, “Ijaw should be counted out of the personal position of some ex-militants, because the country belongs to every citizen, and citizens, irrespective of their political party and religions affiliation, should be at liberty to go to hold campaign at anywhere and anytime.”
