Omadino Communities give Buhari nine days to address 10-point demand or face shutdown of Oil and Gas industry
President Muhammadu Buhari

The wave of ultimatum issued to the Federal Government by Oil Producing Communities in Warri South, Warri South-West and Warri North Local Government Areas in Delta State, over perceived marginalization escalated Tuesday June 30, following a nine-day ultimatum handed down by the Federated Omadino Communities to the Buhari administration, to address a ten-point demand effective Tuesday 30 or face complete shutdown of operations in Oil and Gas sector.

 

 

The Omadino Federated Communities, which comprise of Ode-Omadino, Esungbo, Egwa tie, Egwa kporo, Aghigho, Ogheye-Akpata, Ubaeyin, Eyin-ogbe, Ubakporo, Oteghele, Ukpokiti, Uba- Okorotie, Okerenghigho, Uba-kokodie and Ugbokoko in Warri South, Warri South-West and Warri North, in a petition addressed to President Buhari, accused the administration of gross marginalization of its people.

                                                                                                                                  

 

The petition which was signed by Roland Oti Yomere,

Chief Priest of Omadino & Spokesman for Omadino Federated Communities and Tsaye Mene, outlined the areas of marginalization requiring President Buhar’s urgent attention to include; halting the current process of bids for the 57 Marginal Fields and come up with new modalities, where competent companies owned by Omadino Indigenes as well as other Itsekiri sons and daughters, would be given "right of first refusal”.

 

The oil-rich Itsekiri communities, also demand: “Proper renaming of the Nigerian Maritime University to 'Okerenghigho' as opposed to the corrupted name 'Okerenkoko' to reflect the Supreme Court judgement in accordance to the rule of law and properly compensate our people”.

           

While calling on President Buhari to order immediate resumption of work at the Multi-Billion Dollar Gas Revolution Industrial Park Project, GRIP and Deep Sea Port in Warri South- West Local Government Area of Delta State, the petitioners also asked the Federal Government to direct the relevant MDAs/IOCs to embark on large scale shore protection/sand-filling projects in all Omadino Federated Communities and other Itsekiri riverine/oil producing communities.

 

The need to immediately Institute process for the facilitation of the abandoned age-long Omadino - Escravos (Ugborodo) Road, electrification of the Federated Omadino Communities and other Itsekiri riverine communities, employment of Omadino and other eminently qualified Itsekiri graduates and technicians to reflect the Local Content Act in NNPC, NPDC, NGC and the IOCs, Immediate relocation of the Corporate Offices of the IOCs to Omadino lands as well as restart of the abandoned Sapele - Ughuoton - Omadino Bye Pass Road, are some of the other demands put forward to the Federal Government.
