Members of the committee include: Chief Joshua Fumudoh (Chairman of the Committee), Prof. Dagogo Fubara (Vice), Amber. Goodknows Igali (Sec), Prof. Nimi Briggs, Arch. E.I. Etteh, Chief Nimi Adoki, Mrs Rafi Suowari, High Chief F. J. Williams and Austin Dressman.
The group thanked the Governor for taking the bull by the horn when he commissioned the committee which, it said, did a wonderful job of bringing the dissenting factions together.
National Vice Chairman,South-South Zone, Barr. Perekeme Ayiba said Wednesday in NPA Waterside, Warri, that the efforts at reconciliation has bought together the oneness of the Ijaw people, reiterating that what the Fumudoh committee has done is a highly commendable feat.
The SAVE IJAW group salutes all stakeholders for respecting the recommendation of the committee and called on the newly inaugurated Executive led by Barrister Oweilami Kemetubo to play by rules of the game.
It urged them to carry everyone along in the struggle for the betterment of the Ijaw Nation.
“The time has come for all Ijaws no matter the location or political inclination to come together and work for resource control and self determination of the Ijaw Nation,” the Vice Chairman said.
He also charged the new Exco to eschew parochial interest, greed and work for the harmony and peace of the Ijaw nation.
