THE Egbema Survival Movement (ESM) in Warri North Local Government Council of Delta State has called on the federal and state governments to urgently address the issues of neglect and marginalisation visited on their communities.

They also called on Shell Petroleum Development Company and Chevron Nigeria Limited to wake up to their social responsibilities to Egbema communities, saying that their oil exploration and exploitation activities in the area is impacting negatively on them.
In a press statement signed by Mr. Ebiginde Izon-Kenewonumo, President, Mr. David Egbema-Ebi, Secretary and Victor Ditimi, Operations Director and made available to Vanguard in Warri, yesterday, the Egbema Survival Movement listed their predicament to include the dredging of the Olodua creek, construction of the Ogbudugbudu/Ofunama/Udo road and provision of potable drinking water.

Other areas of marginalisation according to them are political imbalance, unemployment, environmental pollution and degradation even as they called for accountability by the Warri North Council authority.
