MOSIEND Warns Against Attacks On NDDC Boss

The Movement for the Survival of the Izon Ethnic Nationality in the Niger Delta (MOSIEND) has warned against unwarranted attacks on the managing director of the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Dr. Samuel Ogbuku.

The warning followed a recent statement credited to the spokesman of Ijaw Youth Council (IYC), Mr. Bedford Benjamin Berefa, who urged President Bola Tinubu to probe the outcome and expenditures of the NDDC under Ogbuku.

MOSIEND, in a statement signed by its national secretary, Ambassador Amain Cotterel, accused Berefa of sponsorship unfounded allegations of bribery and corruption against the NDDC boss.

The statement said it was very shameful the high rate at which pull-him-down syndrome continues to hinder the growth of the Niger Delta region, calling for all hands to be on deck to end the menace.

The organisation described the statement as “another untamed act by another misguided and uncivilized youth who runs to the media to make cheap defamatory publications against their leaders whenever they are hungry and not attended to personally.”

The statement said: “This is the reason the region is backward in terms of development because, no matter how hard leaders with genuine intentions try to develop the region and empower its people, they will always turn against them in the end – thereby making political office holders to see it as a needless thing to think about their people.

“For the records, Bedford Benjamin Berefa is not the spokesman of the Ijaw Youth Council, neither does any institution of the Ijaw nation know him, as he was never elected at anytime to speak for, or represent the IYC or the Ijaw nation.

“Since Jonathan Lokpobiri and his executive members were elected and endorsed by the whole Ijaw nation as leaders of the IYC, Benjamin Bedford has been moving from one office to another parading himself as spokesman of the council to solicit money from politicians, and anyone who does not welcome him, he launches a media blackmail against them.”
