Mulade Urges Oborewori To Prioritise Development In Delta




By Stephen Asaba-ase


A leading Niger Delta peace and environmental rights activist and National Coordinator of the Centre for Peace and Environmental Justice (CEPEJ), Comrade Mulade Sheriff, has called on the Delta State Governor, Sheriff Oborevwori, to prioritise sustainable infrastructural and Human capital developments and investment in the oil-rich state due to its abundant resources.

Chief Mulade, also known as the Ibe-serimowei of Gbaramatu Kingdom in Warri South-west LGA of Delta State, conveyed this message in a statement over the weekend. He urged political appointees to offer constructive and community-centric counsel to aid the governor’s success. Mulade appealed to all political appointees to view their roles as opportunities to serve the people of Delta State rather than advancing personal agendas.


He expressed confidence that Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori would fulfill his campaign promises if his advisors demonstrated innovative thinking to drive meaningful socio-economic progress in the state. The activist encouraged political appointees to prioritize the interests of Delta State and its citizens over political affiliations, stressing the need for advice that transcends mere political gains.


Furthermore, Mulade advised them to emulate successful models from places like Dubai, the UK, and the USA, to transform Delta State into a global investment hub.

He expressed disappointment over Delta State’s absence from the top 10 states in Nigeria’s 2023 Ease of Doing Business report and its ranking as the second most indebted state, despite receiving the highest allocation in the federation. Mulade underscored the urgency for development commensurate with the state’s financial resources.
