Osinbajo gives updates on what FG is doing on promises made to Niger Delta





The Nigerian Government has declared that it is making progress in the Niger Delta region.

Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, made the disclosure while addressing journalists after a town-hall meeting in Ilaje Local Government Area of Ondo State.
Osinbajo also disclosed that the government is making “incremental” efforts towards meeting all promises made to all oil producing states.
According to Osinbajo, “As you know, this is the last of the oil producing communities that I have been visiting in the last few months.
“Igbokoda in Ilaje Local Government, the oil producing community in this state have also, naturally, demanded a visit, so we are completing the round of visits to the oil producing communities with this particular visit, so it is one of the consultations with the oil producing communities.
“Every one of them is being implemented and they are being implemented incrementally. For example we said we were going to open the Maritime University and we are opening in October.
“We have said we are going to do modular refineries; we have released the guidelines and licenses are being issued. We are engaging with the communities, we are engaging with the state governments.
“We have talked about getting power to Ilaje Local Government, the contract has been awarded, N600 million has been paid. This is a project that has been abandoned for over 10 years but we are doing it and ensuring that power comes to this Local Government Area and to this community.

“So, everything is being done, it is incremental but we are taking them step by step. The Ogoni clean up as you know, has already started.”
