According to the popular broadcaster, Governor Ifeanyi Okowa had promised to resuscitate the station but till date nothing is working.
While noting that he is not castigating the government or anyone, Omadebor stated that the system is not working.
“Am disillusioned and disappointed at the State owned media. I have concluded arrangements to voluntarily retire because am tired.”
“My conscience is pricking me. I am retiring so that as an outsider, I can criticize very well.”
“I cannot continue to work unproductively. We have to speak up and not pretend over it.”
However, Omadebor said the job of a social critic is risky especially with politicians who bear arms to frustrate their efforts but vowed to lay his life as a “Sacrificial lamb” for the entertainment industry in Delta State.
Omadebor posited that Deltans have lost the oil and the entertainment industry in Warri.
Speaking further, he said that the entertainment industry under the Okowa’s administration is not being supported and promoted, lamenting that the government patronized people from Lagos to the detriment of entertainers in Delta State particularly in Warri.
He however stated that he and some stakeholders and practitioners in the entertainment industry, have forwarded a bill for Act to establish the Delta State Entertainment Development Agency.
According to him, when established, it will be Government apparatus to coordinate the activities of entertainment industry in the state.
“If we have lost the oil, we cannot lost the entertainment industry”
Omadebor stated that Shell Petroleum Development Company,(SPDC) packed out of Warri with about two hundred mini-companies because the people who ought to save the economy pretended and did nothing about it.
He averred that the absence of SPDC led to the drop in the population of Warri, stressing ,”There are vacant apartments in Warri. There is littering population. Warri is no longer an oil city.”
Omadebor however lamented that the entertainment industry which is supposed to save the situation and bring Warri back to its place has been politicized by politicians.
