    Why FG should declare Kogi oil producing state

    Lawmakers in kogi, north central Nigeria have given reasons why the state should be declared as oil producing state federal government.
    According to the lawmakers, crude oil in commercial quantity was recently discovered in Echeno and Udeke, all in Ibaji local government area of Kogi.
    John Abah, a lawmaker representing Ibaji constituency in the state adopted the motion appealing to the state government to expedite action in ensuring the declaration of Kogi by the FG as an oil-producing one.
    The motion read in part:
    “Late Prince Audu Abubakar, the former governor of Kogi, July 18, 2001, conveyed a letter to the group managing director of NNPC, notifying the corporation of discovery of crude oil in Ibaji LGA.
    “He also requested NNPC to carry out a thorough investigation to determine the extent of the deposit.
    "Even though the preliminary investigation carried out by NNPC was not published, it is no longer in doubt that there is oil deposit in Ibaji Local Government Area. “Orient Petroleum Resources Limited even made three offers to Kogi State government.”
