Flood: Delta approves drainage for Warri, Effurun

Delta State Government on Friday has approved drainage construction as a measure to control flooding in Warri and Effurun, says Information commissioner, Mr Charles Aniagwu, while speaking to newsmen on the outcome of the state’s Executive Council meeting in Asaba.

He said that the drainage project would cover first and second phases and work would commence in the emerging dry season “without fear of interruption by rain’’.

Aside the drainage project the executive council also approved road construction, linking Ote-Okpu and Owanta, and Aliesimie to Abavo as well as the construction of Mother and Child Advanced Medical Diagnostics Centre in Ika North East Local Government Area. This the government believe will help in reducing mother and child morbidity and promote the wellness of mother and child in the state.

Delta State Government, according to the information commissioner, had approved the construction of a Film Village and Entertainment Park in Ugbolu, near Asaba to boost the entertainment industry in the state as well as create employment for Deltans.
