Uduaghan Reveals Plans For Oil Producing Communities

Ex-Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta State and Delta South Senatorial aspirant under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has revealed his plans for oil producing communities…

“I’ll sponsor bill for 5% community ownership of oil firms. The oil companies might be at your backyard but if you’re unemployable, you leave them no choice but to hire competent hands from other areas.”

“But when you are skilled, even the government would join in your cause because no father wants his son to suffer in the midst of plenty. Our youth must strive to be peaceful and united in their agitation. Peace gives birth to good children any day.”

“By God’s grace, when the people of Delta South give me their senatorial mandate in the next election, I will largely involve our youths in the security of our communities as well as oil installations therein. It would be a win-win for our youths who would be paid for securing a peaceful business environment for investors and companies to operate optimally.”

“This will run concurrently with the five Percent community ownership of industries that I am proposing in our area. As a crisis manager, I know that once communities have a sense of ownership in the operations of companies, they will protect their facilities jealously.”

“Youth leaders in the region must enthrone education in their activities if they wished to be involved in the engine room of governance. The dynamics has tilted away from ‘deve’ and violent arm-twisting of government or oil firms so as to get humongous compensations and contracts to service expensive lifestyles.”

“More educated Niger Delta youths should be at the helm of youth groups as their knowledge come very handy in partnership with developmental initiatives for the economic enhancement of their area. Our youths must also acquire requisite skills that would make them employable oil and gas companies operating in our communities.”
