Osogbo — The Ijaw people of Warri-North Local Government Area of Delta State have called on President Goodluck Jonathan to come to their aide and rescue them from what they described as marginalisation and discrimination.
In a statement by the Egbemas for Positive Change (EPC), the group alleged that since the creation of Warri-North Local Government Area in 1991, comprising of the Ijaws (Egbemas) and the Itsekiris with the headquarters at Koko, only the Itsekiris have been appointed into political offices.
In a statement signed by president of the Egbemas for Positive Change, Mr. Ebimene Fetimi,
secretary, Mr. Smart Yortor and Public Relations Officer, Mr. Major Atigbi, the group said, "The Itsekiris are the ones occupying all the positions. It is also on record that the Ijaws (Egbemas) are more than the Itsekiris in population, yet we are not represented."
