The Ijaw Elders Forum, Ijaw Women Connect, Ijaw Professional Association, Ijaw National Council and others made the statement at a joint press briefing in Yenagoa.

Chairman,  Ijaw Professional Association, General Alaowei Toun (rtd), who spoke on behalf of others, urged the stakeholders and leaders of major political parties in the state to allow the people vote for candidates of their choice, because that is the only way the state can experience peace and togetherness.
