    Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan’s administration.

    pumped into the system has not been accounted for.

    While noting that he is not castigating the government or anyone,

    “Am disillusioned and disappointed at the state owned media. I have

    concluded arrangements to voluntarily continue to voice out any time.
    The night life is the light of every city. Go to Lagos, port Harcourt
    or any other fast booming city you people moving and doing businesses
    even at night. But come to delta you will see nothing going on once it
    is 8 and 9pm in Warri and other city across Delta State.

    life to delta state and to help bring backs popular okada and try

    is”

    “I cannot continue to work unproductively. We have to speak up and not
    pretend over it.”

    Omadebor said the job of a social critic is risky especially with politicians who bear arms to frustrate their efforts but vowed to lay his life as a “Sacrificial lamb” for the entertainment industry in Delta State.

    Omadebor posited that Deltans have lost the oil and the entertainment
    industry in Warri.

    of incumbent Governor Arthur Ifeanyi Okowa has patronized people from
    Lagos to the detriment of entertainers in Delta State particularly in
    Warri.

    He said when established, it will be Government apparatus to coordinate the activities of entertainment.

    “If we have lost the oil,we cannot lost the entertainment.”

    Omadebor stated that Shell Petroleum Development Company (SPDC) packed

    out of Warri with about two hundred mini-companies because the people

    Omadebor said the absence of SPDC led to the drop in the population of
    Warri stressing that,”There are vacant apartments in Warri. There is littering population. Warri is no longer an oil city.”

    Omadebor however lamented that the entertainment industry which is
    supposed to save the situation and bring Warri back to its place has
    been politicized by politicians.

    According to him,” Politicians have used the entertainment business industry as a tool for election purpose. Entertainment is now apparatus to political games “.
