Give peace a chance, NMU is for all, Gbaramatu chairmen tell Itsekiris.

Chairmen of Gbaramatu communities, Delta State, have appealed to their Itsekiri neighbours to embrace peace and work towards the successful take off of the Nigeria Maritime University, NMU, Okerenkoko, saying that the institution is not for the Ijaws alone but for all.

Speaking on behalf of his colleagues on Wednesday, Chairman of Kokodiagbene community, Comrade Sheriff Mulade harped on the need to sustain the prevailing peace between the Ijaws and Itsekiris.

Said he, “The Nigeria Maritime University, Okerenkoko is a Federal Institution and so it should not be seen as an Ijaw Institution. We should all come together and work towards the take off of the University for our own good.”

 While stating that it was needless to create a chaotic atmosphere to prevent the smooth take off of academic activities in the Nigeria Maritime University, Comrade Mulade implored the Itsekiris to advise those he described as enemies of progress in the area, to desist.

He urged Itsekiri people to be wary of enemies of progress in the area and shun the temptation of being used to breach the peace as that would be counter productive, stressing that NMU was established to usher in accelerated development in the Niger Delta Region.

Comrade Mulade strongly appealed to the Itsekiris to embrace peace and work together with their Ijaw neighbours to protect the Nigeria Maritime University, Okerenkoko for all Nigerians.

“All hands must be on deck to ensure early and smooth take off of the University” he added.

He warned politicians to stop instigating ethnic war and allow the people to live together in peace for the overall development of the area.

He further charged disgruntled politicians to allow the people to live in peace and stop deceiving the people in order to cause disaffection among Ijaw and Itsekiri neighbours.
