AKSG SUES FOR PEACE, HARMONY BETWEEN COMPANIES AND HOST COMMUNITIES

Governor Udom Emmanuel has appealed to host communities of industries operating in the state to create a peaceful and enabling environment for the companies to carry out their businesses and break even for the overall interest and development of the state.
Governor Emmanuel made the appeal recently during his inspection tour of the operational base of Amalgamated Oil Company Nigeria Limited located at Mbokpu Uko Akai in Urue Offong Oruko Local Government Area of the State.
The Governor maintained that enabling environment must be created to give way for investors to explore the abundant resources available in the State adding that existing Companies would attract other subsidiary companies which would generate more jobs, create wealth and contribute to the development of the state.
He explained that his administration is poised to generate wealth by attracting investors who would engage the people meaningfully rather than sharing money to a few individuals and groups under the guise of empowerment.
The State Chief Executive therefore urged youths of the area to use the platform of dialogue through the Local Government Councils and relevant government departments to channel their grievances and be guided by Memorandum of Understanding signed with the companies.
An elder statesman and former Deputy Governor of the State, Chief Etim Okpoyo, who was on hand to receive the Governor and his entourage expressed appreciation to Governor Emmanuel for his vision of industrializing the State attesting that Urue Offong Oruko Community is a great beneficiary of the industrialization programme of his administration.
He expressed optimism that Amalgamated Oil Company Nigeria Limited would usher in development to the host community in view of the ever increasing demand for gas and other Petro – chemicals which the company intends to produce.
Chief Okpoyo who noted that the Mbokpu Uko Akai Community appreciate the birth of the Oil and Gas Company in their domain, assured that the host Communities would Cooperate with the company for it to achieve its smooth operations.
The Project Manager Mr. Praveen Kuma said that the company would soon commence drilling of Oil and Gas resources and used the occasion to thank the State Government for providing quality infrastructure for the takeoff of the project.
Mr. Kuma hinted that the company is working assiduously to put in place site infrastructures which are spring boards to the operations of other phases of Oil and Gas explorations and particularly sued for cooperation from the host community to enable the company realized it mission assuring of mutual benefits between the State, company and the host community.
