According to the INC image- maker, Ijaw did not shelve their pursuit of the governorship seat at any time as speculated in some areas.

He described claims that Ijaw had agreed to wait till 2031 to produce the next governor of Delta State as laughable, unimaginable, unthinkable, untrue, evil and as mere political gimmicks.

“Ijaws have never shelved our governorship ambition and we never will. We have never had that conversation and neither will we consider such.

“It is laughable for anybody to say such on behalf of Ijaws. We are in this for the fight to finish.

“We will continue to lobby the other ethnic nationalities to support our cause. By the grace of God, victory is sure, as Ijaws will produce the next governor come 2023,” he said.
