‘Few hours after i emerged as the 7th Executive President of Ijaw Youth Council, (IYC) world Wide, I pay a very necessary “THANK YOU” visit to a very dogged and not relinquished defendant of the oppressed and agitator for the common wealth of the people, Ahlaji Mujahid Asari Dokubo, The Chief Host of the Unity Convention, The Lion of Africa and The Ambassadors of Peace, High Chief Tom Ateke (CON) and one of the most finest and articulate former President of Council, Hon. (Chief) Dr. Chris Ekiyor at their portharcourt residence.
I am indeed grateful and very honored as Ijaw people mandated me to take council to the nest level’.
