International Group slams Ijaw Youths over Nsima Ekere

International Group slams Ijaw Youths over Nsima Ekere

Network Advancement Programme for Poverty and Disease Risk Reduction (NAPPDRR), an international Humanitarian group has condemned in strong terms, what it described as politically master minded insinuations by a faceless, unpatriotic group in state based tabloids, targeted at discrediting the sterling performance of Sir Nsima Ekere as the Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).

This is contained in a release signed by the president of the group, Hon. Al Mustapha Emem Edoho, Secretary, Mr.  Jubril Uwem Edukere and Director of Publicity Enyima Enyima. 

According to the group, the call for Ekere’s resignation is retrogressive and politically masterminded by coward politicians who are intimidated by Ekere’s rising profile.

 “Youths and development organisations across the Niger Delta Region are very satisfied with the records of achievement of Sir Nsima Ekere. Ordinarily, we would not have loved to respond to the panting or a nameless, faceless and non-existent group, but to put records straight, we are compelled to disabuse the minds of Akwa Ibom people that the group does not exist and the cheap blackmail had no signature. 

The Ijaw youths we know are bold enough to mention their names if they had any issues with the NDDC”.

The group called on the leadership of Nigerian Union of Journalists, Akwa Ibom State to look inwards towards taming Quackery in other to redeem the almost lost image of the pen profession in the state. Again, they implored the state government to desist from sponsoring malicious and unwarranted attacks on the personality of the Managing Director of the NDDC, describing the trend as unfortunate, counterproductive, and inimical to the growth of democracy in the state.

Finally, they commended Obong Nsima Ekere for his fruitful foreign trips, which, according to them, will attract foreign investments and development consultants to assist in developing the Niger Delta region.
