Some protesters who claimed to be from ‘host communities’ Delta Ports of the Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA) in Warri, early this week disrupted port activities in protest against the posture of a terminal operator.
The protest which was led by one Emiko Oghomienor and another Ijaw youth leader, led to stoppage of port operations for about several hours and caused heavy traffic logjam that took the combined efforts of military men and police officers to bring under control.
The protesters told the management of the port led, by the Port Manager; Mr. Obumneme Onuenyenwu, that they took to the peaceful protest against the operator, as all avenue explored to resolve their grievances with the company fell on deaf ears.
They alleged that out of about 18 companies engaged in different activities in the port, only the operator has refused to dialogue and sign any M.o.U with them after so many years of operations.
They alleged non-employment of qualified host community indigenes, non- award of contracts to indigenous and competent contractors, non-patronage of indigenous haulage trucks owners, while persons from outside the host communities are employed and engaged to lord it over them against the local content policy of the federal Government.
