The Ijaw Youth Council IYC has called on youths in the Niger Delta especially the beneficiaries of the presidential amnesty programme to shelve their plan to block the East West road in protest over their unpaid stipends.
 
President of the youth council worldwide Udengs Eradiri said the amnesty programme is in the process of winding up, therefore the office would not be able to meet up with the payment of the stipends to everybody.
 
He called  on the beneficiaries to maximize what they had benefited from the programme to sustain themselves in the future.
