Foremost Niger Delta activist and National President of the Ijaw People’s Development Initiative IPDI, Austin Ozobo, has stated that it will only be fair that the gentleman rotational agreement, if it exists, begins with Delta Ijaws this time.

Ozobo premised his argument on the fact that every other major tribe in the state has tasted the seat of power, except Ijaw.

The activist cum politician maintained that among the three major tribes in Delta State, Urhobo, Delta Ibo, Ijaw and Itsekiri, it is only Ijaw that is yet to produce governor in the state, noting that it will be inimical for anybody to argue the 2023 governorship with the Ijaws in Delta State.

Ozobo added that Urhobo, who had produced several governors both in military and civilian governments in the state should support Ijaw to produce the next governor in the state come 2023.


The Ijaw leader argued that since the purported gentleman rotational agreement had been benefitted by all major tribes, except Ijaw, let Ijaw man have his fair share come 2023.

He said, “Even if it is by Senatorial basis, since the first Osusu began with Delta central, it can’t begin with Delta Central again. Let it begin with Delta South, then it will proceed to Delta Central and Delta North respectively.

“If truly a labourer deserves his wages, let Ijaw man have the wages of his labour for labouring politically over the years.”

The Niger Delta popular advocate reiterated that Urhobo should wait till 2031 to produce the next governor.


He further adduced that except the Ijaws betrayed themselves, it is a divine providence for them to produce the next governor of Delta State come 2023.
