The Ijaw National Congress, INC, has described the late King and former member of the Council of Ijaw Traditional Rulers and Elders – CITRE as a RARE GEM and an inspiration to countless many.

President of INC Worldwide, Prof. Benjamin Ogale Okaba, who was represented by the Chairman of Eastern Zone of INC, His Royal Majesty, King NLA Iraron, Ede Obolo II, who led the five-man delegation on the condolence visit to the residence of Prince Tonye Princewill, lauded him for setting up a high powered PAN IJAW Central Burial Committee to oversee the burial arrangements of the late Kalabari-Ijaw Monarch.

The delegation however frowned at the non-inclusion of INC WORLDWIDE in the burial committee and expressed readiness to participate with the inclusion of some INC members in the burial committee by the Prince.

He further informed the Prince that his father, the late King was not just a father but a pioneer pillar of INC and a father to many Ijaw sons and daughters; and that it is the responsibility of IJAW NATIONAL CONGRESS INC, WORLDWIDE to fully participate in the burial process of the Ijaw Monarch.
