Activities commemorating the 2013 Major Isaac Adaka Boro Day
celebrations came to a climax yesterday in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State with
Governor Seriake Dickson conferring an honorary citizenship of the
State on African American human rights activist, Reverend Jesse
Jackson.
Governor Dickson also gave Reverend Jackson an Ijaw name,
“Izontariowei” meaning he who loves Izon people.
He said the honour done the two-time United States presidential
aspirant was in recognition of his contributions to the promotion of
civil liberties.
Governor Dickson, who expressed appreciation to Reverend Jackson,
guest speakers and all those who graced the occasion from far and
near, thanked them for identifying with the Ijaw Nation.
Commenting on the life and times of Major Isaac Adaka Boro, first
civilian Governor of the state, Chief Alamieyeseigha recalled his days
with the late hero.
He noted that, if Boro were alive today, he would have acted for the
common good of the people.
In his remarks former Governor of the old Rivers State, King Alfred
Diete-Spiff stated that, the ideals Boro lived and died for would be
pursued because he paid the supreme prize for the Ijaws to have some
level of recognition in the country.
King Diete-Spiff also suggested that Oloibiri, where Boro was born,
should be the name of the next state if states were to be created.
The President of the Odua Peoples’ Congress, OPC, Dr. Fredrick Faseun
described Isaac Boro as a worthy hero of the Niger Delta and the
country and that the Ijaws have demonstrated how to resist oppression.
The OPC leader who said the congress shares in the pain of the people
of the Niger Delta occasioned by the activities of crude oil
exploration and exploitation, called for the passage of the Petroleum
Industry Bill (PIB).
He stressed that in addition to President Goodluck Jonathan having the
constitutional right to go for a second term in office, it was time
for the country to give back to the Niger Delta for their
contributions to the economic survival of Nigeria.
Highpoint of the event was the presentation of plaques containing the
crest of the Ijaw nation by the Governor to Reverend Jackson, former
Presidential Adviser on National Assembly Matters, Alhaji Tanko
Yakassai, President of the Odua Peoples’ Congress, Dr. Fredrick
Fasheun, among others.
