Multi-million projects to northern states meant to promote unity, NNPC explains

The President/Founder of Belemaoil Producing Ltd. (BPL) Mr. Jack-Rich Tein, Jr., has explained that the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation/BPL Joint Venture delivered projects to communities in the Northern part of the country in the interest of the unity of the country.

BPL last week commissioned multi-million naira Water and Road Projects executed under the NNPC/Belemaoil JV in Katsina, Bauchi, Gombe and Sokoto, as part of its efforts to bring succour to the people of Niger Delta region and Nigeria at large.

This was disclosed yesterday in Port Harcourt in a statement by the Manager External Relations, Samuel Abel-Jumbo.

Tein said the projects were means of promoting oneness and unity in Nigeria and to better the lots of the people and give them a better lease of life.

He said: “This gathering here today is as a result of our desire to share fellowship, to share oneness. Nigeria is one indivisible country that is centred on love irrespective of the political insinuations, affiliations and we must as a matter of fact build bridges that unite us.

“We are here to demonstrate oneness, we are here to demonstrate love. You, here in the north and myself from the Niger Delta, are one. Every country, the U.S., UK, Europe, they all have their challenges but when you have a challenge what you do with that challenge draws you to solution.

“When my friend, Umar Kumo (PA on Special Duties to SGF) mentioned this project to me, he said, ‘my community travels about 10-12 kilometres in search of water and I promised them that because NNPC loves community development, I will initiate the project and see how we can embark on them. We are happy that this project is successful.”

He, however, thanked the NNPC and President Muhammadu Buhari for supporting the project and for granting the company the operating  license of the OML-55, which has given the company opportunity to better the lots of many across the country.

In his speech, the Group Managing Director of NNPC, represented by Mrs. Tolulope Derin-Adefuwa, called on the people to make good use of the projects. He said NNPC embarks on community development projects through its partnerships for grassroots development.

I don't know if this is a typographic error because none of the benefiting states are in the Niger delta region.
Methinks that the project should not be presented in these terms because it is insulting to the peoples of Niger delta.

If it is a Federal government project, then it should be presented as such. If it is an NNPC project, fine too, afterall NNPC can execute projects in any part of Nigeria.

NNPC has no business claiming to "unite Nigerians" because parastatals are not qualified to define or even appreciate factors that affect Nigeria's unity. Their charge is to make money for the country (at least that is the idea).

As things stand today in Nigeria, the country is at its closest point to disintegration because about 50 -80 million (likely more if you add some Northern youths) Nigerians want an opportunity at self determination.
No amount of "indivisibility" scam would ever change any of these facts on ground.

We have a resolutely ethnic and sectional federal government in place, and until that changes in MAJOR and IRREVERSIBLE ways, Nigeria is headed towards disintegration.

As Igbo say, "omeghi na izu omee na onwa" -if it doesn't happen soon it will happen later.

This project has been tribalized and it doesn't  look good for Nigeria's unity.

This shii must be a typo
