The Kunukunu-ama Community Youth President in Gbaramatu Kingdom, Warri South West Local Government Area of Delta State, Comr. Bernard Penawei has told beneficiaries of Ocean Marine Solutions Limited (OMS) not to meddle into their matter with Capt. Hosa Okunbor, CEO of the security firm handling OML 30.
The youth president drop the hint recently via a statement issued to newsmen in Warri, a copy of which was sent to The Liberator Newspaper.
Comr. Okikiri stated that their brothers must not dabble into such matter as the Sub-community and Central Youths Leadership agitations to the Chairman/CEO of Ocean Marine Solutions Limited, Captain Hosa Okunbor of their rightful employment slots.
President Penawei stated that the group, Central Youth Body in Warri, Excravos, Burutu and Forcados have no issue with Engr. Dickson Ogugu and Chief Mose Bebenimibo but noted that they must not meddle into their struggle to benefit from the system.
He also stated that Dickson Ogugu and others are contractors under Captain Hosa Okunbor’s Ocean Marine Solutions Limited (OMS) hence their attacks on the group.
The statement noted that it had no issue with Ogugu or any Izon and Itsekiri persons that had contract or employment slots in Ocean Marine Solutions Limited, but they felt disappointed that Dickson Ogugu, Chief Mose and others could come out open to in trying to constitute a clog in their quest to benefit from the said arrangement.
When contacted, Hon. Bullet Otuaro, leader of the Central Youth Body on the issue, he said “we are very surprised that Dickson Ogugu, Chief Mose and others took upon themselves to defend what Ocean Marine Solutions Limited has been carrying out against our people, especially on a matter that short-changes the employment slots of the youths in the area.
“All we are asking for is peace, justice and equity, and that means, Ocean Marine Solutions Limited Chairman (Captain Hosa) should call the Central Youth Body for a round table meeting and give us our rightful employment slots.”
Okirika concluded that the Central and the sub-community Youth Body had vowed not to relent until Captain Hosa Okunbor does the rightful Youths engagement.
