By Ebi Perekeme

Selected Ijaw and Itsekiri Stakeholders of Delta State December 10, 2020) held one-day dialogue on Peaceful Coexistence for Sustainable Livelihood at Charles David Lot Hotel in Warri.

The dialogue session was facilitated by the Warri Multi-Stakeholder Platform for Peaceful Coexistence of Ijaws and Itsekiris (Warri MSP) and supported by the Partnership Initiative for Niger Delta (PIND).

In a press communique issued after the meeting reads; “That Ijaws and Itsekiris shall henceforth organize more Dialogue Sessions in order to ensure better understanding and relationship between the ethnic groups.

“That Ijaws and Itsekiris shall henceforth join together to engage governments at all levels to ensure development of the two ethnic groups in particular and Delta state in general.

“The two ethnic groups urged governments at all levels to develop policy and legal framework for the establishment, development and management of markets to forestall the kind of misunderstanding that has trailed the issue in the state and elsewhere.

“That both in the defunct MDGs and the present SDG, partnership is recognized as key to sustainable development, therefore Ijaws and Itsekiris shall henceforth partner in order to develop their areas.

“That since development cannot happen in an atmosphere of rancor that the two ethnic groups shall ensure peaceful coexistence at all times for the development of Delta State and Nigeria.

“That they shall reach out to other stakeholders from the other ethnic groups to ensure peaceful coexistence for sustainable livelihood.

“They commended the cooperation between the two ethnic groups especially during the peak of the pandemic and urged everyone to remain vigilant until the last is seen of COVID-19.

“That all Deltans shall cooperate with the State Government and ensure the peaceful and conclusive conduct of the forthcoming local government elections in the state.
