President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been told to focus more on the Abuja powerful oil cartel if he wants to stop oil theft in the Niger Delta region.
Rivers State Governor Fubara also faulted FG’s ceding of contracts for security/Surveillance of oil pipelines in the hands of an individual or a few persons, asserting that the development won’t help the fight against oil theft.
“Security of pipelines should not be placed in the hands of one man or a few individuals. You can’t say for instance that somebody from Kalabari should be asked to determine and control what is happening in Ogba-Egbema.
“It’s not possible, not workable. Or somebody from Ogba-Egbema should take charge in Ogoni. You can understand there is no way it would work. You need to come down to bring on board all these host communities heads or leaders.”
