Buhari pledges support for development of Niger Delta, signs University of Petroleum Resources Bill

President Muhammadu Buhari Tuesday in Abuja pledged continued support for the socio-economic development of the Niger Delta region.

Giving the assurance at a brief ceremony in the State House to sign the bill establishing the University of Petroleum Resources, Effurun, Delta State, into law, the President said “this administration is fully committed to supporting the Niger Delta in its endeavours to achieve socio-economic development.”

He appealed to all communities in the region to strive for peace through dialogue in resolving all conflicts not only among them, but also with business entities and the authorities.

With the signing of the bill into law, the path has been cleared for the establishment of the specialised university in the Niger Delta, charged with training and research in petroleum technologies.

  1. Nothing for this govt to sign.Its been signed by previous govt, nothing happened. The foundation stone is over grown by bush. Will never believe untill i see workers working . I know how this will end. Govt will go on another trip and forget what it signed. This is why the nigerian people rate this govt unreliable. Even wonder if the president is mentally sound. The president need to take pry 4 exam test.
