The attention of the Ijaw National Congress (INC) has been drawn to a press war after interviews granted by our foremost Ijaw leader and Chairman Board of Trustees of INC, Chief Dr. Sen. E. K. Clark touched on the Honourable Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Elder Godsday Orubebe.
Congress is dismayed that Elder Godsday Orubebe contemplated and even carried out attacks in newspapers on the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Congress, a highly respected leader and 86 years old statesman for reasons we are so far unable to fathom. What a naked dance of Elder Orubebe!!!. Therefore, we advise the Honourable Minister to concentrate on his ministerial work to uplift the country and the Niger Delta in particular which our people have so much expectations.
Congress therefore wish to advise Elder Godsday Orubebe, his political associates and followers to pursue their political ambition with decorum, peacefully and without acrimony; and desist from any further attacks on the person of Chief E. K. Clark so as not to cause crises and dissentions in the Ijaw Nation.
Congress seizes this opportunity to once again urge all political office holders particularly at the national level to concentrate on their jobs and bring democracy dividends to the people. We urge Elder Godsday Orubebe to use the same national press to immediately render unreserved apology to the revered papa Edwin Kiagbodo Clark and further call his surrogates to order. This should be done without pre-conditions demanded on the elder Statesman.
