Isoko Equity Group Beg President Buhari For Ministerial Slot

WORRIED by marginalisation by successive governments in Nigeria, the people of Isoko, Delta South Senatorial District of Delta State have appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to appoint one of them as a minister in his next cabinet.

The convener of the Isoko Equity Group, Barr Silas Buowe who made the appeal on behalf of the Isoko people told a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday that since 1999 to date, a total of ten ministers had been appointed from Delta State and no one was appointed from the Isoko.

Buowe told newsmen that the people of Isoko are, “Encouraged to seek the intervention of Mr President because we are confident that he is averse to injustice.

He said the people of Isoko believe that by appointing an Isoko man into the federal cabinet, the President will be righting the wrongs of several decades.

More importantly, the convener of Isoko Equity Forum said the Isoko people voted massively for President Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the just concluded general elections.

“We are therefore confident that our plight will be addressed by him,” he said and added that, while many ethnic groups in the oil-producing states in the Niger Delta Region use violence as a tool to command attention, the Isoko people believe in constructive engagement and negotiations.

While it is the President’s prerogative to appoint whoever he deems qualified as his minister, Buowe said the Isoko nation parades some of the most qualified persons and appealed to the President to kindly consider them in making his choice of next cabinet member from Delta State.

Buowe said the Isoko land is the second place where oil was first struck in commercial quantity, at Utere in 1958, in the present Isoko South Local Government Area of Delta state and added also that Isoko is the largest onshore oil producing area in the Niger Delta Area with its ecological problems.

He said the Isoko nation will not resort to violence but will use every legal and legitimate democratic means to get the attention of the present administration to look in the direction of the Isoko nation in the appointment of his ministers.

*The isoko land in Araya town also has a historical significance....The Bible reportedly fell down from the skies many years ago and a man named Adam also reportedly did great things when he was alive........I cant remember the story but hey I am Isoko and it is time for us to unite in one voice...

Can someone send me Barr.Buoye's number?Thank you


  1. What post are you people looking for when you guys did not vote for him

  2. Isoko wado.. lots of people have never heard of isoko before, especially when I tell them I am isoko.. no be small minority we be. They know urhobo though

  3. Buhari nor dey read read or listen to news. It happened in 2015 where Isoko north was the only LGA of south south that he won. But picked Kachikwu from Anioma to represent delta state in his cabinet.

  4. It's Uzere not utere but isoko people at the top don't like helping their fellow isoko that's why most people don't know about us.

    Black man and his shallow mentality. How is this going to move the nation forward. We should grow out of this archaic way of seeing the world. It makes no difference where a minister or government appointee is from. Just get the job done, that’s what’s important.
