The Publisher/Editor-In-Chief of DailyWatch Online Newspaper, Mr. Cletus Opukeme has urged the leadership of the eight (8th) Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) Worldwide and the Ijaw Nation to hire a media expert to handle their media works behind the scene for them if they’re incompetent to deal on national issues with no selfish interests especially as its concerns the looting at the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC)..
Mr. Opukeme gave the advice in a statement he signed and made available to newsmen in Warri.
Opukeme who was reacting to a purported comments made by the IYC President, Comrade Peter Timothy said, “I am pretty sure there are several capable hands in the current IYC Executives which I suggest, such hands should be consulted on issues that have to do with the public for protection of the sacred image of the famous Ijaw youths organization.
Opukeme had noted that, the IYC President, Timothy had in a statement described and condemned the Niger Delta people who came to throw more insights in the NDDC financial malfeasance just as he called same a “media trial,
According to Opukeme, “I will only support IYC with a clear vision and with interest for Niger Delta Region. If not the media revelations who would have known the massive looting in NDDC?
“Is Mr. Peter Timothy speaking for himself or for the entire Ijaw youths? The 8th IYC National council should put their house in order before coming to the public as action by the President or National Spokesman in the public is binding the entire executives.”
