Douglas Moses and Ijaw Youth Council Woman leader, Diebiri Clan Western Zone, Comrade Esther Douglas, were among prominent indigenes of Diebiri Clan that called for the appointment of Diebiri indigene as DESOPADEC Commissioner.

The Ebenanowei of Diebiri Clan, Engr. James Orubu, averred that they will continue the protest until their demand is addressed.
