08 August 2012, Sweetcrude, WARRI—THE oil-rich, riverine Ogulagha community in Burutu Local Government Area in Delta State and Shell Petroleum Development Company, SPDC, have commissioned a 1.2 kilometre drainage project to ease flooding in the community.

The two-side drainage on a major road in the community was made possible through the community development scheme fund augmented by SPDC joint partnership and is meant to drain flood waters directly into the sea.

Leader of the implementation team for the project, Dr. Benka Coker, who commended the community executive for the choice of the project, charged them to always maintain it for the benefit of the community.

Earlier, the Chairman of the community, Mr. Francis Bomiebi, who was represented by his deputy, Mr. Tony Temeowei said the era of diverting community funds to personal use was past, adding that there were more beneficial projects lined up for execution by the community.
