According to the President of the Ijaw Republican Assembly-Patriotic Front CHARLES HARRY so many Ijaw indigenes like the founder of the Silverbird Group BEN MURRAY BRUCE have done so much for the society.
At the event, the Niger Delta leaders heightened their call for the restructuring of Nigeria as President Muhammadu Buhari prepares for his second term.
The agitation for resource control took the centre stage at the award night which brought together elder state men and women across the ijaw nation.
Former Military Governor of Rivers State now the Amayanabo of Twon-Brass Alfred Diete Spiff and other ijaw leaders believe that the restructuring of the country will enable the Niger Delta people achieve their full potential through the control of their resources.
Apart from resource control, the soot in the atmosphere in the Niger Delta is another nagging problem discussed by the Ijaw leaders.
The quest for hard work and commitment to the Ijaw course remains the main reason for hosting the awards.
