THE ROLE OF MONARCHS IN OCEAN GOVERNANCE IN THE NIGER DELTA REGION

The Marine Environment Conservation group in Nigeria called Mission for Rescue of Nigeria Sociocultural Environment appeals to Excellency, Chief Barr. Nyesom Ezenwo Wike CON, DSSR, Life Bencher, immediate past Executive Governor of Rivers State, very indefatigable people’s leader and Friend of the progressives and now again, the choice of the MIRENSEN to crown his the “CCWT 1St Universal Life Patron” of Coastal Communities Work Team Nigeria. The appointment is attracted by the appointee’s consensus approval by the people of the entire Niger Delta region to officially recognize HE Chief Wike for his countless achievements amongst very prominent records the reconstruction of the Aquaculture economy infrastructure (rehabilitation work to world-class) the Nembe Waterside known as FENI POLO in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria.

The legacy of development activities epitomized by the just ousted Governor is our impetus to quickly draft the champion to pilot the navigation of the Coastal Communities Work Team Ship set for official inauguration as an integral part of the recommended National Taskforce on Marine Litter and Plastic by the Nigeria Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) since in 2020.

The leadership of the MIRENSEN CCWTNigeria network is satisfied with the performance of Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike CON, DSSR, LIFE Bencher and has therefore singled him out to reward him with the prestigious international MESC collaboration Award 2023 for best performed Rivers State Governor existed. The performance of the administrator who is also a High Chief in the Rumuepirikom ancient kingdom, the Okokochi K’idoma, is not only to be celebrated here in Nigeria but beyond the coast of Africa and shall be conferred with higher mantle “Abaji Peripelebo 1 of Niger Delta region and the CCWTN 1st LIFE PATRON “Commander of the Ocean Territory” for the satisfactory Valued service for good governance rated by the International community. Also to be awarded is a great Man, the people’s general and philanthropist, now the brand new Chairman of the Rivers State Council of Traditional Rulers, His Royal Majesty, King Sir, Ohna Sergeant Chidi Awuse Nne Nwe Emohua XIII (OLO VI), Emohua, Rivers State for his dogged support to reclaim both land and sea from the threatening single-use plastic menace in Rivers State.

In view of rating successful Aquaculture Environment Development (AED), in Rivers State, we had called for nominations from the public to Award the governor to fit in for the Office of the ” 1St Universal Life Patron of the Coastal Communities Work Team Nigeria” an equivalent to the honorary title awarded only on the late Queen of England, Elizabeth II,  for her despicable flare against Marine Environment Development Initiative hence the strongest support base for the MIRENSEN CCWTNigeria actively putting up a fight against ML + P before 2050 SDG target. With the kind of Chief Barr. Wike as our Life Patron, we shall beat our chest enjoined sister Africa outfits networking the Coastal Communities and volunteers willing to end Ocean Pollution via land-based, fishing, and seaside picnic sources by 2050.

It is right to state here that the Mission and Vision of the MIRENSEN is to coordinate sister bodies in major signatories countries to the MARPOL Conventions, having laid the foundation with successive Chieftains of the Nigeria maritime agency and users of the marine infrastructure responsible for the management of the marine environment, but has failed to implement various Acts and Legislations compelling it to stimulate a National Taskforce on Marine Litter and Plastic as the fastest conduit to win the war against ML + P, before 2050 SDGs target’

“We, therefore, appeal to His Excellency, Chief Barr. Nyesom Ezenwo Wike CON, DSSR, LIFE Bencher extended that wonderful touch to build the MIRENSEN Coastal Communities Work Team (CCWTNigeria) than usual media touch which made all things he touches to perfection.

The MIRENSEN CCWTN was born out of the flare to tackle the growing public menace of “marine litter and plastic”. paramilitary NGO for Ocean environment conservation, preservation, and protection was first officially invited to co-initiate the National Taskforce on Marine Litter and Plastic (NTF – ML + P) to share our expertise and wealth of experience to tackle the threats of the subject and return hope to aquaculture in Nigeria.

“Well the idea was succumbed to as a very brilliant contribution, therefore it’s foundation development, an initiative of a Taskforce to conclusively comprise the coastal communities youth, women groups who are into aquaculture but to exist as volunteer service. That the NTF – ML + P serves as the enforcement outfit whereas, in the same manner, the agency NIMASA had engaged boat operators as Marine Marshals to eradicate river – with a focus to complement NIMASA tackle marine environmental pollution, ut which is yet to be seen.

It is no news again that we are desperately worried over the high rates of aqua – life on extinction. And from the human perspective, an estimated 90 percent of plastics that are produced annually around the world, which find their way into oceans and rivers as wastes and litter, end up as food for sea animals. By implication, these animals, when consumed by humans, constitute health danger as well.

In Nigeria, about 80 percent of marine litter originates from land-based sources (industrial waste), we shall try to minimize this.

We like to siege the opportunity to commend one of our own and very Distinguished traditional monarchs, a great philanthropist, a pillar of Marine and Land sports in Nigeria to accept to come to our rescue. This Mission wouldn’t have come through but for the understanding ability of His Royal Majesty, King Ateke Michael Tom JP, Amayanabo of Ancient Okochiri Kingdom, SEKURU 1 of Niger Delta region. And because the type of royal Father, Uncle, brother, and friend is not common to come by on the earth planet, and he is one who loves and promotes aquaculture, which also has been champion, we are satisfied therefore to bestow on His ROYAL Majesty, Office of the Commander of the Ocean “CCWTN Great Grand Patron Africa”; a title to lead all other titles to WIN the WAR against marine economy deficits before 2050. This answers the call to the Traditional Monarch for his role in marine environment reclamation, conservation, preservation, and protection
