The Executive Chairman of Warri-South Local Government Area of Delta State, Honourable Dr Michael Tidi in his firm resolve to boost Agro-economic growth in the coastal communities of Warri South, on Friday 8th November 2019, donated six fishing boats with engines as well as fishing nets, to six Co-operative Societies in the local government area.

Dr Michael Tidi, in a statement released on Friday by his media aide, while making the presentation of the boats and accessories, explained that the essence was to boost Agro-economic activities of the beneficiaries, particularly in fishing and other related economic activities.

The chairman who expressed optimism that the initiative had enabled his administration to create jobs with its positive multiplier effects on the economy of Warri, tasked the benefitting co-operative societies to make optimal use of the fishing boats and nets, as well as ensure their maintenance,

“so that the benevolence of this administration could be replicated for other Co-operative Societies or bodies”.

The lawmaker representing Warri South Constituency 1 in Delta State House of Assembly, Dr Augustine Uroye, described the gesture as the first of other economically beneficial programmes in the offing.

Dr Uroye assured that he will continue to partner Warri South Local Government Council in the task of creating wealth and building capacity of his constituents.

The Olu of Warri, Ogiame Ikenwoli, in a message through the Palace Administrator, Chief Clement Maleghemi, advised the beneficiaries to protect the fishing boats and ensure productivity.

A member of Delta State Advisory Council, Chief Roland Oritsejafor and Leader of Warri South Legislative Arm, Hon. Jude Igherebuo were among personalities that spoke at the well-attended ceremony.
