While reacting to the above assertions, the “Forum of Patriotic Deltans led by Mr. James Okoro Obukowho while backing Comrade Sheriff Mulade’s calls, described Fred Latimore’s statement as political, biase and of the interest few and a mere window dressing exercise , noting that in the spirit of equity and farness, the Ijaw nation has not done wrong by demanding an upgrade of it’s institutions by the Okowa’s administration.
The group has said in a statement that they are in supporting of the advised given by Chief Mulade’s for the Delta State Government to upgrade certain schools and institutions in Ijaw and Itsekiri nations to Universities.
