Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, Minister of Petroleum Resources, and Group Managing Director of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has made the disclosure that job creation will end pipeline vandalism.
“I have appealed to those who are breaking oil pipelines for now, the Niger Delta Avengers and everybody else, and as you know, we are engaging in negotiations for us to find peace this week and be able to enter a truce that stops all the destruction.”
Kachikwu noted that Akwa Ibom would have an oil depot, as his ministry developed a document basically on relationship with oil producing states.
He said: “So we can find a direct link between what we do and the oil that we produce. Then the restiveness will go. More than just the depot, I think Akwa Ibom deserves more.”
Kachikwu further address the results of collateral damage pipeline vandalism by the Niger Delta Avengers. “Ihe array of pipeline bombings by the Nigerian Delta Avengers, NDA, it would take nothing less than 15 to 20 years to get infrastructure in the oil sector working.”
