BAYELSA STATE:
Gov. Douye Diri’s administration has on Thursday, August 27 re-echoed its commitment to a peaceful atmosphere for oil and gas exploration.

Commisioner for Mineral Resources, Dr Ibere Jones, made the remarks while charging community leaders to foster peace and create a conducive working environment.

The new Commisioner made the call at the inauguration of the 25 member Dodo River Community Rural Development Association in Yenagoa. Communities that made up the Association are hosts to Chevron Nigeria Limited which funds development projects in the area under the Global Memorandum of Understanding (GMoU). The communities are Amatu 1, Amatu 2, Bilabiri 1, Bilabiri 2, and Bisangbene in Ekeremor local government area of the State.

The commissioner said, “The administration of Gov Douye Diri is very keen on maintaining peace for economic activities to thrive and it is a prerequisite for the realisation of its prosperity agenda and without peace there cannot be progress and prosperity. So the government sees peace as a fundamental basis for everything we do and the governor is very careful and passionate in providing a peaceful environment for businesses to thrive and attract more investment to the state,”

Jones who inaugurated the new leadership of the association at the Dodo River Communities secretariat, located at Kpansia area of Yenagoa, Bayelsa capital, urged the new leadership to justify the confidence reposed on them by their communities by running an open door and corruption- free administration that will be accountable to the people, adding that judicious application of development funds be expended prudently.

Mr Francis Amamogiran, Chairman of Dodo River Communities Rural Development Association speaking to newsmen after the inauguration noted that, “So far, the GMoU is the only process that has provided answer to development, transparency, accountability and lasting peace in the Niger Delta. I commend Chevron for the landmark history it has made in the Niger Delta with the introduction of the noble idea of the GMoU”.

“What is more remarkable is the commitment of officials of Chevron to the implementation of the terms of the GMoU to the letter, we applaud the leadership provided by the Public Government and Public Affairs team at Chevron in fostering the development of our area.
