They used the medium to thank President Muhammadu Buhari for nominating Chief Timipre Sylva who happened to be the only Ijaw Minister designate, urging him to give him a ministerial portfolio that would truly reflect the sacrifices of the Ijaw people in the survival of the nation.

The IYC President informed his Zonal Chairmen that in no distant time he would call for an enlarged exco meeting to discuss critical issues on the management and project implementation of the Niger Delta Interventionist agencies especially the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
