Call Burutu chairman to order, Group urges Clark, Orubebe

By Emma Amaize
WARRI — A group, Patriotic Movement of Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State, has called on Ijaw national leader, Chief Edwin Clark, Minister of State for Niger-Delta, Elder Godsay Orubebe and other Ijaw leaders  to call to order chairman of Burutu Local Government Council.

The group, in a statement signed by its president, Comrade Napoleon Kenere-kedi, and six others, also drew the attention of ex-militant leader, Chief Government Ekpemukpolo, member of Delta State House of Assembly, representing the area, Solomon Funkeke-me, House of Representa-tives member, Tamarautare Brisbe, Engineer Frank Enekorogha, P. Y. Biakpara, Asupa Forteta and Braduce Angozi, to the purported mal-administration of the council by the chairman.

According to the group, “it is with tears and deep sorrow we are calling on the state government and leaders from Burutu Local Government to intervene immediately without delay.

“Since the inception of Frank Zuokumor, the executive chairman of Burutu council, what had almost seemed to be a brighter future for everyone, both old and young, has suddenly turned into a dark world.”

The group claimed that the chairman stayed more outside the local government area, adding that his absence has affected the local government economically and otherwise, especially in terms of development.

“Burutu as the headquar-ters has not experienced any form of development, from a local government that can be rated among the first four richest local governments in the state.”

The only form of development the people of Burutu have experienced or achieved is a road construction, which has turned a road of destruction, because after destroying the former road, the council chairman has refused to do something about it for six to seven months running,” the group lamented.
