In his words, “This is a great move and a body like this is very important to the Ijaw people. My advice to this body is that it should have a constitution to guide its activities, so that everyone will work according to their functions.”

Furthermore, the monarch also advised the body to imbibe the culture of love for one another and not to discriminate.

I have seen several President General Forums that do things to override their kingdoms and that has led to disputes over a clash of interests and power tussle. This body should not be like that but should love one another and have a good constitution to guide its activities and have a good succession plan to prevent disputes.”

Some of the executives at the meeting include: Hon. Chief Richard Enaredei (JP), PRO; Mr. Zipamor Wilson, Spokesman; Chief Patrick P. Orunagha, Secretary; among others.
