Speaking about the Rivers State Crisis, Obarilomate Ollor, a former chairman of the Eleme Local Government, claimed that despite being a minority, the Ijaw group aspires to hold positions of leadership, including governorship.

He stated this ambition is stirring apprehension among the more populous ethnic groups, particularly the Ikwerres, who may consequently lose their confidence in reclaiming governance. He highlighted that If the youth begin to internalize the current sentiments, it could perpetuate divisive attitudes and hinder unity within the state.

He said in an interview with Channels TV, ”In my consultation with one of my colleagues who is also a chairman, he feels disturbed that this crisis might change the political landscape of the state. The Ijaws are the minorities in Rivers State but they want to become governors and leaders.
