The meeting had in attendance various stakeholders from the zones, including national assembly members. The SMBLF said the “appropriate” person will be recommended to the people after the leaders engage the various presidential candidates. NUPRC had said it was targeting June for marginal field awardees to begin the field development plan (FDP).

Advertisement “Let me begin by congratulating and commending Yewande Adebowale for emerging as one of the top four winners at the Commonwealth youth competition at the Kigali Startup Festival 2022 at the Commonwealth Youth Forum. “SMBLF firmly reiterates its stance on the principle of zoning and power rotation between the North and the South, as the fulcrum on which the Nigerian Federation has, since independence, been premised,” the communique reads. Advertisement completed the first successful bid programme after 18 years. According to the group, it will in “due course, engage with the appropriate Presidential candidates and afterwards decide on which of the candidates to recommend to the peoples of Southern Nigeria, the Middle Belt region and indeed, all Nigerians of goodwill, for consideration at the polls in 2023”. “The Tuckahoe police department regrets to inform members of the community that Ejeviome Otobo was located yesterday afternoon and is deceased,” the statement read.

Advertisement On the state of the nation, the forum said the failure of the federal government to live up to its constitutional responsibility of protecting lives and properties, is an invitation for residents to take up arms and defend themselves. Komolafe said the event would also witness the unveiling of the implementation template for the Host Communities Development Trust Fund for the commencement of the provisions under section 235 of the Petroleum Industry Act (PIA).” Advertisement The president commended the level of professionalism of Nigerians living in Rwanda and the amiable nature of their interactions with each other. “That the state of insecurity in the country is worsening by the day, with devastating impacts on the welfare and livelihood of ordinary Nigerians, thus, calls on the Federal Government to take urgent steps to stem the tide and assuage the suffering of Nigerians,” the document reads. “Warns that the ambiguity of the Federal Government and the failure of the security agencies to decisively deal with these situations, buttress concerns that officials of the Federal Government and security agents are complicit in the security anomalies in the country; “Warns that the continuous abdication of the Government’s primary and abiding constitutional responsibility of safeguarding the lives and properties of its citizens, is an irresistible signal to Nigerians to exercise their inalienable rights of self-defence, by all means, in deviance of extant laws, which have not deterred terrorists the use of weapons even superior to those of the security agencies. The NUPRC CEO emphasised that it would provide an enabling environment for sustainable development of the country’s hydrocarbon resources.” Advertisement The forum added that the security situation in the country calls for the implementation of state police, and that the national assembly and the federal government should immediately begin the “requisite legislative instrument in this regard rather than indulging in meaningless lamentations”. People would read and know Nigeria by your actions and activities,” he said. Signatories to the communique are Edwin Clark, SMBLF/PANDEF leader; Ayo Adebanjo, leader of Afenifere; Pogu Bitrus, president-general, Middle Belt Forum, and Okey Emuchay, secretary-general, Ohaneze Ndigbo Worldwide. He said the commission had informed all participants in the 2020 marginal field bid round programme about its conclusion in line with the PIA 2021. At the Global Governance Institute in Brussels, Belgium, he held the position of non-resident senior fellow in Peacebuilding and Global Economic Policy up until his passing.
