The  Speaker of the Delta State House of Assembly, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori has appealed to the Osubi Airstrip Workers  to remain calm and peaceful and not to take laws into their hands.

All  is not well with the Osubi Airstrip Workers.

The Speaker while addressing the Osubi Airstrip  Workers  at the Airstrip, expressed concern over the plight of the workers who are being owed  by Shoreline Oil Services Ltd.

“As a member representing this Constituency in the Delta State House of Assembly, I feel your pains on a  daily basis.  It is very painful that this Airstrip we laboured for is not working as expected. I hold this Airstrip very dear to my heart. It is very  painful that the issues affecting  the Osubi Airstrip workers have not been addressed. But  the  peace that you have provided despite the challenges you are facing is commendable, please keep it up. I must also commend you for the respect you gave to me  when I came here last Thursday to appeal to you to continue to carry out all your duties here and you people obeyed me and you have been working as expected. Thank you very much  for the honour”, he said.

He added that; ” Those in Shoreline  have not lived up to expectations and  now they are on their way out. Keep the unity and the peace, do not fight. Follow your process peacefully. I am here again  today to address you  because you people have been very peaceful and so  continue to allow peace to reign. Do not do it in a  violent way and do not take laws into your hands”.

Responding, the  Chairman of the Osubi Airstrip Workers Consultative Council, Comrade Enomate Kingsley, thanked  the Speaker for his interest in their welfare.

He said that; “Your presence here today to address us  has lifted our spirit,  you have boosted our  morale.  We want to thank you for this meeting. We want to assure you that while  waiting for the needful to be done by the management, we  will not take laws into our hands,  we will continue to be respecters of the laws.
