Ijaw Nation, has become the first ethnic Nationality amongst the scores of tribes that make up the oil and gas-rich Niger Delta region, to sign the Niger Delta Peoples Charter ahead the February 23, 2022 presentation of the Charter to the world.

 

 

 

 

Fresh Angle International can report that the Agadagba X of Gbaraun Kingdom, HRM, King Frank Okiakpe, reportedly signed the Niger Delta Peoples Charter, Thursday November 25 in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, on behalf of Ijaw ethnic nationality.

 

Recall that a Former President of Nigeria Environmental Society, NES and elder statesman, Engr. Olu Andah Wai-Ogosu, appended his signature to the Niger Delta Peoples Charter on behalf of Rivers State, after Prof. Ebiegberi Joe Alagoa, signed the charter as Bayelsa State representative.  

President of Niger Delta Congress, Nubari Sataah, in a statement released Friday November 26, reiterated: “The Niger Delta Peoples Charter, will continue its journey to other Niger Delta States, to collate signatures. It is expected that 70 persons will sign the Charter, including representatives of all ethnic nationalities of the region and Pan Niger Delta groups.

“The Niger Delta Peoples Charter, will be presented to the world on 23rd February 2022, commemorating the 55th anniversary of the declaration of the Niger Delta Republic, by Major Isaac Adaka Boro”. 

 

The urgent need for Nigerian Constitution to be revised as recommended in the National Conferences convened in recent times, is top among five critical demands enshrined in the Niger Delta Peoples Charter.

According to Sataah, other four critical demands enshrined in the Niger Delta Peoples Charter, stated thus: “An immediate assessment of the entire Niger Delta environment be made to determine the scale of devastation, any compensation(s) recommended by the above inquiry (National Conferences) be paid speedily without delay, a complete cleanup of the entire Niger Delta region be carried out without delay and all monies received by the Nigerian government from the exploitation of crude oil and deprived the people of the Niger Delta, under the guise of ‘derivation formula’ be returned to the Niger Delta”.
