Be United To Achieve Success, Ijaw Leaders Told
When people are united, they would work together and achieve success faster in the pursuit of their goals.
This assertion was made by some leaders in the Niger Delta region who called for unity among the Ijaw people.
This call was made during the celebration of oil and gas discovery day which serves as a reminder of the discovery of crude oil in the Niger Delta, particularly in Oloibiri, Ogbia local government area of Bayelsa state.
The leaders say disunity would not allow the people to speak with one voice to fight for their rights as a people.
They appealed to the men, women and youths to always use peaceful methods in solving conflicts for the common good of the region.
However, they expressed hope that the federal government would put more efforts in handling the issues of the region to make the people have a sense of belonging as a part of the country that produces the major source of income of the country.
