The Ilaje communities in Warri South-West Local Government Area of Delta have appealed to the Federal Government to resume work on the Gas Revolution Industrial Park (GRIP) and other abandoned critical projects in the area.
The appeal was contained in a statement signed by Mr Adekunle Robert, Chairman, Ilaje communities and made available to journalists on Sunday in Warri.
Robert said that the projects would help to transform the area by way of creating jobs for the teeming unemployed youths in Delta and the country.
“I want to appeal to the Federal Government to resume work on the abandoned multi-billion Dollars GRIP project.
“The Deep Seaport and the Omadino/Escravos road projects all in Warri South-West Local Government Area to create jobs and transformed the area that have long been neglected,” he said.
Robert also appealed to the Federal Government to give them a sense of belonging by creating an avenue for them to partake on issues relating to oil matters.
According to him, this would go a long way to mitigate the hardship being experienced by the people.
“We are particularly worried about our sons and daughters combing the streets of the country in search of jobs all to no avail.
“We also lament the persistent neglect of qualified individuals from the Niger Delta region to participate in crucial oil matters,” he said.
Robert, however, urged the Federal Government reciprocate sustainable peace in the area by way of developing the oil communities.
“Our penchant for continuous calmness could be motivated by the Federal Government through conscious effort to revamp our oil-rich communities from the present state of deterioration,” Robert said.
