Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta has begged for sustainable peace to aid development in Delta state.
“By the grace of God, we will be able to fund our budget in 2018.
“Not many people realise that for many months back, about 65 per cent of oil and gas that would ordinarily have come from this state was not exploited because of the Forcados Trunkline that was shot down.
“But, thank God that since June, 2017, the Trunkline has been operational and we are now benefiting from it. We have now moved to number two in terms of oil production in the country.
“I believe that if we continue to sustain this peace, in the next few years we will begin to reap the fruits of development.
“I want to encourage investors to come back because this area has a good population that can make any company to survive,” he said.
