The National President of ACWCN, Delta State-born Comrade Bawo Nicholas Ighomi, in a chat with newsmen, after the inauguration, explained: “The aims and objective of the association, is to protect, represent and defend the interest of the people of coastal and waterways communities.

“Today is the inauguration of National and State Executive Councils. After today, they will go back and inaugurate members of their local government executives.

 

“The message to all the members, is that they now have a voice and a bridge to be represented in every part of the country. Before now, the government didn’t have a bridge to access people of the coastal communities, but now the coastal communities, have people representing them. They are the bridge through which the government can get to the waterways”.
