The lawmaker, who personally deployed enough man power and Swamp Boogie Sunday September 8, to commence the exercise at the major water channel in Ekurede-Itsekiri Community, which suffered heavy flooding Friday September 6, vowed that the exercise will not end until all shallow and blocked water channels in Warri, linking major rivers and creeks are opened up.

 

While commending the Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa for responding swiftly to calls put through to him on the flood menace, by detailing the State Commissioner for Environment to Warri to ascertain the situation, Hon. Uroye assured that the wastes evacuated from the water channels, will be removed to prevent a situation where such wastes fall back to the channels.

According to the former Chairman of Warri South Local Government Transition Committee, the next agenda would be working towards shore protection of the water channels and also ensure clearing of the channels annually, to prevent flood from attracting health hazards and dragging reptiles to people’s homes.
