PORT HARCOURT: The apex Ijaw body, Ijaw National Congress, INC, has warned the Federal Government against going into negotiations with ad-hoc groups angling for relevance in the Niger Delta region, describing them as self serving.

President of INC, Chief Charles Harry, who spoke in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, noted that the groups were merely on a self serving mission, stressing that they were inimical to the common good of the region.

He said that the government will only give room for more groups to spring up if it opened negotiations with those already struggling for attention, adding, “We are averse to the bickering/influence peddling that has led to the formation of several ad-hoc bodies by Chief Edwin Clark, HRH, Alfred Diete Spiff, Rotimi Amaechi and others, which we believe are self serving and inimical to the interests of the region.”
