The Federal Government has been commended on the designation of Anambra State as an oil producing state by the Greater Umuleri Liberation Forum, GULF.
The president’s action was described as timely and capable of elevating the state as the “job basket” of the East as it would provide jobs to the people of Anambra Valley and the entire state.
GULF’s coordinator, Comrade Onyebuchi Diboh (aka Biafra Diboh), urged Governor Peter Obi and OPR to ensure that “Local Content Law”, as promulgated by the Federal Government, is implemented in all its job distribution, contracts, scholarship and bursary awards.
“We particularly commend the effort of Mr. Peter Obi-led government of Anambra State in realizing this pace-setting project that would be beneficial to the people in particular and Nigeria in general. We also appeal to the OPR to always negotiate with the host communities in its land acquisition”, he said.
