Niger Delta oil made billionaire, Mohammed Indinmi is reportedly suffering the angst of the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC) Worldwide after he made a donation of 4.2 billion naira to an American University.

The council labelled this act “an irresponsible and a global wastage of Niger Delta resources.”

The spokesperson of IYC worldwide, Eric Omare, in a statement, said, “it is sad and provocative that Mr. Mohammed Indinmi who operates in different parts of the Niger Delta region and has failed woefully in his corporate social responsibility to the host communities could donate such a whopping amount of money to a private institution in far away America whereas the communities and people hosting his company, Oriental Energy wallow in poverty. Mr. Indinmi has no single record of contribution to community development in Nigeria, not even in the terrorist ravaged north east.

“We state that the money Mr. Indinmi wasted in far way America is Niger Delta money and the people of the region must work towards recovery all their resources in the form of oil blocks awarded to people like Indinmi."

IYC called on youths of the Niger Delta region to close ranks and work towards addressing the aged – long injustice of past Nigerian Presidents awarding oil blocks to their friends and relatives while the people of the Niger Delta region wallow in poverty.

Omare hinted that “The forthcoming IYC conference of Niger Delta youths on Thursday, the 26th of May, 2016 in Warri, Delta State provides the opportunity to start the journey. Niger Deltans must reclaim their resources.”
