 Igho:

 Thanks.

I await the input of the Ijaw and Itsekiri delegations, if any is  forthcoming.

Bolaji:

You will recall that you wrote down, VERBATIM, the text of the motion to  adjourn. It is our position that any Report you and Philip produce should  include the full text of the Motion to Adjourn. It is not sufficient for you to say that a motion to adjourn was "moved by so-and so and seconded by  so-  and so." We took time to ensure that the motion was read and copied by
you  including the accepted amendment to the motion. It was also agreed at  the conference that the Motion to Adjourn be part of the Report. If you  intend  to discard the full text of the Motion to Adjourn from the Report, then  I suggest that you seriously reconsider such an action. Once again, it is  imperative that the Motion to Adjourn be included VERBATIM in the  Report. It  is an integral part of the Report, and cannot be edited or omitted from  the  Report.

Furthermore, your decision to exclude documents that were sent to you  after  July 24, after you had said they would be included, should also be  reconsidered. The Urhobo documents were forwarded to you and Philip as  part  of our submissions that were demanded at the conference. We copied the  other delegations.
 

THIS IS OUR LAST COMMENT ON THIS ISSUE WHILE AWAITING A COPY OF THE  REPORT.
 

Cheers

Igho Natufe
