Osinbajo arrives Akure for National Council on Niger Delta meeting

Osinbajo arrives Akure for National Council on Niger Delta meeting”

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday said the exploration of the bitumen deposit in Ondo State was critical to the development of the state. Numerous countries in Europe have set deadlines for the phasing out of hydrocarbon cars which would make Nigeria crude oil unnecessary for the worldwide markets.

Osinbajo, who restated the commitment of the present administration towards rapid development of the Niger Delta region, added that "for us development of the Niger Delta region is not optional".

"We intend to break away from legacy of broken promises and failed interventions that we inherited when we took over", Osinbajo said.

"It is an important and appropriate request and we will make it a duty". We should use the resources to develop other potential of the region.

He said the blowing up of oil pipelines was no longer fashionable as the rush for crude dwindles across the globe.

He said that the development of the Deep Sea Mining Port would serve as the veritable potential to turn the Niger Delta Region of Ondo State into a hub of investment opportunities.

"It, however, lacks evidence of development depicting its status as the proverbial goose that lays the golden egg".

Mr. Joseph said the accident involved about three vehicles conveying some persons to Igbokoda for the Niger Delta meeting. "Embarking on any white elephant projects can not be in our interest".

The President Muhamamdu Buhari-led federal government has approved of the release of N2 billion for the take-off of the Maritime University in Delta State.

"The legislators in Ondo State should ensure that the issue is an item in the budget".
