Illegal Refineries Threat To Development - Maku

Illegal Refineries Threat To Development - Maku

Illegal refineries and oil pipeline vandalisation are the greatest threat to the development of the Niger Delta region and Nigeria as a whole, Information Minister Labaran Maku has said.

He said this Saturday in Abuja when he visited the Civil Defence Academy on the third day of the 2012 National Good Governance Tour.

“If these communities do not stop puncturing these pipelines and polluting the environments, it will hinder the development of the region and the nation as a whole,” he said.

He commended the Civil Defence Commandant, Ade Abolurin, for a good performance and advised public office holders to emulate him.
