Lagos - Ijaw leader and coordinator of Ijaw Monitoring Group -IMG, Comrade Joseph Evah has commended the Chairman of Presidential Amnesty Programme, Hon Kingsley Kuku for encouraging former agitators in the Niger delta to donate a total of N52.7 million to flood victims in the region.
In a statement signed in Lagos, Evah said the gesture was a good lesson for present and future leaders of the Niger delta.
He recalled the IMG had earlier initiated the same method of the youths donating parts of their Amnesty allowance for the development of the region and for the support of the needy in the region.
"We thank Kuku for helping to train the youths today to share what they have with others. If we don't want to produce another set of wicked generation of leaders that will continue to draw Niger Delta backward in the next 100 years, we must remove the evil spirit of winner takes it all mentality from our children."
He urged all Niger Deltan to emulate Kuku and come up with ideas and programmes to assist victims of the ravaging flood in the region.
