The Udu Traditional Council, Otor-Udu, Udu neighborhood government region of Delta state has given Nigerian Petroleum Development Company Ltd (NPDC) 14 days final offer over complete disregard in giving social comforts and non work of one indigene since their investigation of Oil and gas in the network more than 30 years prior. Record: Oil The final proposal which was issued by the Sir (Chief) Sam E. Odibo JP, the Otota (Spokesman) of Udu Kingdom, and duplicated the Vice President, MD, NPDC Benin, Asset Manager, NPDC, H. E. Delta State Governor, Udu House of Assembly Member, Chairman Udu LGA, DPO, Ovwian-Aladja and others said inability to satisfy up their needs after the termination of their final proposal, their activity will be shutdown. Uduaghan: 64 festoons for an inexhaustible achiever(Opens in another program tab) The announcement peruses in parts, “It is about 30years since your Company (NPDC) initiated Oil and Gas investigation and abuse in Udu kingdom. To introduce a more clear and increasingly exact point of view, NPDC is directly working 8 oil wells in Emadadja people group, 2 oil wells in Ubogo, 1 in Oghior, 5 in Ukpiovwin, and 3 in Otor-Udu; a sum of 18 oil wells. “Another 2 new oil wells are being bored to bring the complete number of Oil wells to 21. Far beyond these, the equivalent NPDC is working 2 gas wells in Ukpiovwin and 11 gas wells in Otor-Udu; an aggregate of 13 Gas wells. “One of the wells in Ukpiovwin, explicitly Gas well number 12, is the biggest maker of gas in the entire of West Africa.
These Oil and Gas wells referenced above are in Udu kingdom or Udu Local Government Area of Delta State. “The Federal Character Principle was embraced in the mid 1980’s while the Nigerian Local Content Policy pursued about 10 years or 2 later. As you read us, and with the majority of the various Oil and Gas wells, NPDC hasn’t even ONE indigene – (kid or young lady, man or lady) – on its finance. “NPDC has everlastingly thought that it was helpful, and has along these lines kept on citing reasons upon reasons; and had manufactured one reason or the other shackling their hands into inertia and it has turned out to be unimaginable for any foundation, including Udu conventional chamber, to persuade distressed indigenes about this stupendous disregard and disagreeable stance of your organization. “We are illuminating them that the tolerance of Udu kingdom which has kept on being battered and wounded for as long as 30 years has at last been squashed and appeased. In this manner, if inside 14 days, from the date of this notice, NPDC is unfit to indicate both God and man (Udu and the world) a rundown of Udu indigenes in NPDC’s pensionable staff, we will without a doubt stop your activities in every one of the Gas wells and Oil wells in Udu kingdom/networks. “Without purposely welcoming the consideration of NPDC to this gross and authentic Human Resources hardship, they should know, as a mindful organization, their obligations to the networks in their general vicinity of activity.
Throughout the years, there have been a few fizzled endeavors at getting your Establishment to show their normal commitments, either by method for Federal Character or Local Content Policy or both and that’s just the beginning. “Throughout the years, our Oil and Gas are channeled away with no records. For about 10 years now, your proposition to assemble a Flow station in the Abura field in Udu LGA has been at the planning phase organize. To the degree that Udu has barely been known to be Oil creating. “This has had its gradually expanding influences on the kingdom. For example, we have not been given our due at the DESOPADEC on the grounds that the quantum of Oil and Gas Udu produces isn’t known. We request the quick beginning of the development of the Flow station. “We don’t have to exhaust further vitality in explaining other fizzled/dismissed/disregarded social corporate duties. The royal residence has over this period been in its brief site. We trust you can develop a befitting royal residence at Otor-Udu and migrate our ruler to the Udu Traditional Headquarters. “We consequently offer that you take this on soonest as one of your veritable socio-corporate duties to Udu kingdom. It is beyond the realm of imagination that Udu is adequate just to be misused. “God would not despise/rebuff Udu to the degree of not giving us an individual employable even as Head driver, Head security watchman or Chief agent; a learner engineer also. NPDC has been most network hostile.”
