Notable leaders in the South-South geo-political zone have hit back at the Ovie of Idjerhe Kingdom, Obukowho Monday Whiskey, describing his comments on the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio as reckless, stressing that Ovie of Idjerhe Kingdom, Obukowho Monday Whiskey is alone,’’ they claimed.
The leaders also described the Delta monarch in unprintable words.
A statement by the Chairman of South-South Front (SSF), Chief John Harry, not only described Whiskey’s outburst as misleading but commended Akpabio for steering the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs to greater heights.
The statement emphasized objectivity, constructive discussion, competence, devotion and thorough reform.
They praised Akpabio for his commitment to greater development and adherence to the principles of transparency.
The leaders said, “the NDDC forensic report marks a vitally important step forward for the Niger Delta region. The statement also underscored intelligent leadership, appreciation and respect.
”Sen. Akpabio is a quintessential politician. He has done well,’’ the statement said. The leaders therefore called on stakeholders in the country not to be influenced by hate sponsors.
