Officials of the firm had on Saturday, July 22, 2023, conducted Chief Omare and his team round some of the structures posing as obstacles to the project aimed at channelling water to nearby rivers.

Officials from the Delta State Ministry of Lands & Survey will also be on ground to ascertain the authenticity of approval documents of those whose buildings and other structures were built on existing natural water channels.

Chief Omare disclosed to journalists that, bulldozers and other heavy-duty equipment have been mobilised for the demolition exercise which will be devoid of sentiment and political colouration.

“It is not about Frank Omare, it is not about Governor Sheriff Oborevwori, it is about the government of Delta State.

“I stay in Warri, when it rains for 10 minutes most areas are flooded. We must be disciplined. It is not political. I am serving this government not because of anything but let me contribute my quota.”
