An Ultra-Modern Market at Ugbuwangue Community with 110 Lock-Up Stalls and 120 Open Market Stalls, constructed by Warri South Local Government Council, was on Tuesday September 3, commissioned in Warri.


In an address before the commissioning, Chairman of Warri South Local Government, Dr. Michael Tidi, noted that the essence of renovating the 110 lock-up stalls handed over to the council by Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission, DESOPADEC, under his leadership and the construction of additional 120 open market stalls, was to change the narrative of Warri from negativity in all sectors to positivity, in line with his administration’s policy of enhancing the socio-economic fortunes of the local government area.

While stressing that the desire to accommodate the traders that had hitherto been in the market without shops, informed expansion in the market, Dr. Tidi expressed optimism that the once moribund Warri Port, will soon experience beehive of economic activities as a result of concession of a section of the port.


He disclosed that in the next few weeks, the second Warri Economic Summit will be staged by the council, to consolidate on the gains of the maiden edition.

The Warri South Local Government Chief Executive, appealed to people of Warri to contribute their quota towards the development of the council area and enjoined indigenes of Ugbuwangue Community as well as the traders to maintain the market and other infrastructural projects executed in the community.
