In his words: “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.
