Nigeria: Increase in Oil Production Will Provide Jobs - Comrade Ezimah

The Niger Delta Solidarity Forum has heaped encomiums on Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, for the increase in oil production from 800,000 barrel per day to 2.6 million barrel per day.

Spokesman of the forum, Comrade Julius Ezimah, who spoke to newsmen in Abuja about the minister's concerted efforts, said the increase is capable of moving the nation forward.

He also noted that the generation of 5000 mega watts of electricity is the first of its kind in Nigeria, adding that this will enable youths to be gainfully employed and reduce insecurity across the nation.

He further added that the petroleum industry Bill is a paramount issue which needed a quick passage by the National Assembly which will lead to full reform in the oil and gas sector in Nigeria he said.
