Members of the Ijaw Project had gathered in large numbers to honour Chief Soberekon in Port Harcourt and addressing a large crowd of friends and associates of the Kalabari Chief, popularly known as “Soberekon for the masses”, the Director General of Ijaw Project, Somina Wokoma said:

“Respected Chiefs, Elders, Youths, Crusaders, and the good people of Rivers State, today the over thirty-five thousand Crusaders of the Ijaw Project, cutting across the twenty three LGA’s of Rivers State is proud to climb on the ladder provided by our father, Soberekon for Masses to introduce to us, a seasoned politician, a classless philanthropist, a great mogul and an indefatigable crusader of the Ijaw Project – Chief Barrister Dumo Lulu-Briggs, a true son of the soil, a man of the people at every level and starter, a lover of parents, son of the childless elderly and a friend of the down trodden; as the Ijaw Project’s choice for 2019 gubernatorial elections”.

Somina Wokoma said that the Ijaw Project Organization had come “to respect, honor and celebrate a true son of the soil, an astute politician, an Ijaw icon, a father of the masses, a leader per excellence, a mentor, motivator and builder – Alabo Bekinbo Soberekon”.  Concluding that everybody present can attest to it that he is sincerely a father of the masses.

The Director General said that on this auspicious day, Ijaw Project has only one gift to present to Chief Bekinbo Soberekon, which is the emergence of an Ijaw Riverine Governor in Rivers State come 2019 especially one from the Kalabari extraction.

The organization lamented that  since 1999 till date (18years) now, the Riverine people have not been given the opportunity to lead as number one citizen of the State.

Somina Wokoma said that the Ijaw Project is convinced beyond every reasonable doubt that Chief Barrister Dumo Lulu-Briggs is “competent, wise, man enough, talented, matured, capable and qualified by every barometer to govern River State come 2019”

He therefore  called on  Lulu-Briggs to accept the clamour for him to contest the governorship and “liberate Rivers State from the claws of poverty, restore her lost glory, preserve the lives of the hopeless youths who are wasting away by the intake of hard drugs, prostitution, armed robbery, cultism, kidnapping, and gangsterism; and also rescue our middle aged men and women from the corner benches of ogogoro, begging and other self-demining activities by industrializing the State, connect the Riverine Communities to the State capital through bridge building, human capacity development and also engaging in other sustainable developmental activities”.

Ijaw Project Organization said that “it is proud and bold to say that only an Ijaw Riverine governor like Chief Barrister Dumo Lulu-Briggs can bridge and will bridge the gap by completing projects like the Trans-Kalabari road, Bonny/Bodo road, Port Harcourt Monorail project and the shopping complex at GRA junction while initiating other new transformational projects”.
