Deputy Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Mr Friday Osanebi, has called on Host Communities of Nigeria Producing Oil and Gas, HOSTCOM, Ndokwa nation, to support the overall development of the area and stop limiting their agitations and requests to Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission, DESOPADEC.
Osanebi gave the charge in his office in Asaba, when he received the leadership of HOSTCOM, Ndokwa nation, on a solidarity visit. He bemoaned the uncoordinated approach of leaders and groups of Ndokwa extraction to its development stride, calling for more synergy for the purpose of using HOSTCOM to broaden their horizon and see beyond DESOPADEC.
He noted that there were other companies and groups that are into oil and gas in Ndokwa nation that have not affected the area positively.
He reiterated the need for a unified youth body for Ndokwa youths, noting that he won’t bow to pressure from any quarter to share the money meant for community youths for surveillance with non- community youth groups.
