RELOCATE ALL OIL FIRMS TO NIGER DELTA- OMO-AGEGE

Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege has urged oil companies to relocate their headquarters to the Niger Delta region.

A statement by his special adviser on media and pulicity, Yomi Odunuga, over the weekend, said Mr Omo-Agege made the call at his home-Orogun- in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State.

Omo-Agege noted that there was need for oil companies that left the region to return, considering the prevailing peace and speedy development in the region.

He reinforced his concern about the alleged plot to move the headquarters of the Nigerian Gas Company Ltd (NGC) in Ekpan-Warri to Abuja.

He said that the relocation of the headquarters of multinational oil companies to the Niger Delta would speed up development of the area, create job opportunities for youths and strengthen the atmosphere of peace in the region.

“I’m sure the message has been sent that they cannot move, they must remain, Omo-Agege said.
