This is to notify all IYC members and Ijaw people that on the 31st of March 2017, Hon Justice Ogola presided over a matter involving Eric Omare President IYC and 10 others Vs Ebi Warebigha and others. Hon Justice Ogola in that sitting directed Counsel to the Respondents Koyode Esq. to undertake to advice and ask his Clients to maintain the status-quo by preserving the Res (which means asking his clients not to do any election pending the hearing and determination of the Preliminary Objection raised by the Counsel to the Respondents represented by Ebi Warebigha as to the Jurisdiction of the Court to entertain the suit).

Counsel to the respondents in an open Court undertook to hand down the position of the Court to his Clients and further promised the Court to hold him responsible if the Respondents fails to obey the directives of the Court before the 13th day of April, 2017.

The matter was accordingly adjourned to the 13th day of April, 2017 for the hearing and determination of the Preliminary Objection and the Motion on Notice in the Matter.

The proceedings of the Court shall be released on Monday for evidential purpose.

We therefore call on all Ijaw sons and daughters to please abide by the directive of the Court and allow a peaceful resolution of all grievances.
