THE Chairman Kokodiagbene Community of Gbaramatu Kingdom,  Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta State, Comrade Sheriff Mulade has said that crude oil exploration and exploitation has become a curse to the region.
Mulade made t‎he assertion on Thursday in Kokodiagbene during the commissioning of the N30million Council built community hall.
According to him, “We thank you for this great project, it is the first of government intervention in our community.
“Crude oil has become more of a curse to the Niger Delta region as it’s exploitation has led to poverty and despoliation of the environment, the communities suffer while the wealth is diverted to other regions. 
“We ask for more attention in the area of school library, market and school. We also thank High Chief Government Ekpemupolo for his contribution to Gbaramatu development.”
On his part, Mr. George Ekpemupolo, Chairman, Warri South West Area reinstated the call for councils autonomy to enable them deliver quick and effective development to their constituents.
Ekpemupolo made the call while commissioning the N30 milli‎on community hall built by him.
Ekpemupolo call on public officers to adopt prudent management of funds, insisting that lack of proper financial propriety is the bane of under development in the country.  
He revealed that despite the drop in allocations his council has been able to pay salaries and carry on projects financing.
It could be recalled that during the recent strike by council workers across Delta State, Warri South West didn’t join as their salaries were promptly paid.
