Post created on 9:23 am



The president of the Niger Delta Youth Movement, Comrade Joe Jackson has been removed from office as the national president over an alleged abuse of office.

The news of his removal was contained in a statement titled “Notice of removal from office as the national” issued on Sunday in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State by the national Public Relations Officer of the movement, Comrade Boboye Peretu,

The statement stated that the deputy National President Amutadi Uba Tega has been nominated to take over the position in acting capacity of the body.

After the statement, the National President, Comrade Joe Jackson said he was still in charge of the affairs of the movement.

Jackson was removed by the National Executive council meeting after invoking section 11(a) of the constitution during a meeting held in Owerri, the Imo State on Sunday, March 13, 2022.

Some of the reasons why Jackson was removed was his alleged refusal to call for NEC meeting for more than one year in spite of appeals from National Officers to do, and refusing to hand over the official vehicle for more than two years.

He was also alleged to have forged and authored a letter to total E & P Nigeria Limited Trans Amadi Industrial Layout, Port Harcourt, Rivers State purporting that it was the NEC that approved of the composition of Egi Ward/Clan Executive when he knew that it was the duty of the State and Local Government Executive to oversee the activities of a Ward/Clan and others.
