His words: “Even when we disagree, we must, we must do so in the overrall interest of our people. Whether we agree or disagree, it should be in such a way that will advance our common good.”

“The Ijaw nation is bigger than any one of us. We will, therefore, not allow anybody’s parochial ego to destroy an organization our fore-fathers put together over the years.”

“We have a lot of challenges now. Our people are pursued left, right and centre everywhere. It is only when we work together that we can protect our future.
