Niger Delta leaders yesterday called on their people to vote out current members representing them in the National Assembly in the 2019 General election.
The leaders described their region’s members in the National Assembly as insensitive, self-serving and incompetent insisting that they have no business in the assembly.
They wondered what the lawmakers especially Senator Ben Bruce representing the Bayelsa East with all his common sense posturing were doing when all items concerning the Niger Delta in the budget were slashed.
One of the leaders and former President of the Ijaw Youths Council (IYC) worldwide, Udengs Eradiri, said there was no common sense in reducing budgetary allocations for critical projects in a region, which produces resources to finance the entire budget.
Eradiri said the actions of the lawmakers were provocative, sad and painful saying that the representatives were the real problems of the Niger Delta.
“If it were my days in IYC, l would arranged to flog them. But Niger Delta people should not allow such persons go back to the National Assembly. We should emphasise on quality of persons representing the region. Niger Delta representatives are a disgrace”.
