Buhari’s committed to N/Delta development, says Olu of Warri

Olu of Warri, Godfery Ikenwoli Emiko has said that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is serious and committed to the development of Niger Delta region.

He made the remark while speaking with State House correspondents after paying a courtesy visit on Acting President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He was in the Villa to express gratitude to the government on the proposed modular refineries and the commencement of academic activities at the Maritime University.

He said: “The federal government is doing everything possible, yes, they have been promising but this time around we are seeing signs of seriousness. For instance the Export Processing Zone, EPZ project started by Jonathan, he did the ground breaking but since then, nothing happened. But since the recent visits of the Vice President, we have seen seriousness.

“For sometime now there has been peace in the Niger-Delta area because the people have seen seriousness in the government. So if the government keeps up the pace, there will be more peace it will be better for everybody. More oil will be produced and there will be more money, development will come to the Niger-Delta area. We will support them in achieving that,” he said.
