Delta Govt Imposes Doomsday Fate On Buildings in Natural Drainage; Brace for Flooding

The Delta State Government has issued a stern warning to owners of buildings and structures located on natural drainage and waterways to leave or face the imminent demolition of their properties. No one, regardless of their status, will be exempt from the government’s crackdown.

The objective is to ensure that water flows freely through the correct channels, preventing flooding and its devastating consequences.

Inspection reveals illegal structures

  1. The government’s decision comes as a result of Governor Sheriff Oborevwori’s recent inspection tour of the waterways and drainage systems in Warri and surrounding areas. During the inspection, numerous illegal structures that were obstructing the flow of water were identified.

Fatal consequences of building collapse

  1. In a related incident, a building collapse in Cameroon claimed the lives of twelve people. This tragedy serves as a reminder of the dangers posed by poorly constructed structures.

Final warning issued

  1. The Director to the State Government on Special Duties, Frank Omare, embarked on a sensitisation tour in the Warri South and Uvwie councils. During this tour, Omare delivered a final warning and notification to building owners, urging them to vacate their properties before the imminent demolition exercise planned by the state government.

“Those buildings on the drainage channels that have been identified will be marked for demolition,” said Omare, as buildings situated on waterways were identified and targeted for removal.

Residents hopeful

  1. Many of the affected residents are in agreement with the government’s efforts. They hope that this action will finally resolve the long-standing issue of flooding in the area.

Environmental restoration a priority

  1. Blocked canals overflowing with dumped refuse are an all too familiar sight in the region. The government is determined to address this matter promptly and restore the environmental integrity of every part of the state.

“Once the exercise begins, there will be no sacred cows,” warned Omare, signifying the government’s unwavering resolve to take necessary actions to mitigate the risks associated with flooding and safeguard the environment and the lives of residents.
