Marginal Fields: Accept FG’s dialogue window, Otuaro advises oil-producing communities 

Deacon Kingsley Otuaro, Deputy Governor of Delta State, has begged oil-producing communities in Delta State to accept the Federal Government dialogue window over their demands for marginal fields in the region, amongst other concerns.

This is coming against the backdrop of insistence by some oil communities among the Urhobo, Isoko, Ijaw and Itsekiri to go ahead with earlier threats to shutdown oil operations in Delta State following the expiration of their ultimatum.

Otuaro while speaking to newsmen in the state on Monday, said: “I informed oil-bearing communities penultimate week that the Federal Government has reached out to the Delta State government, which had engaged the Federal Government on several of the issues raised by the communities.

“I wish to reiterate my appeal for peace in wait for the Federal Government which we are confident is tidying up the table for dialogue. We will reach out to the communities. We all know that the issues can only be resolved on the table of dialogue.

“I believe that constructive engagement of the FG in dialogue is preferable to violence which is very likely to put our defenceless people on collision path with security agencies and deplete already achieved gains from dialogue process.

“I like to emphasize that the issues of Marginal Oil Fields, Gas Revolution Industrial Park, GRIP and Gbaramatu Deep Sea Port, GDSP, both components of the Escravos Export Processing Zones, EPZ project, Omadino-Escravos and Ogheye-Koko road projects, Modular Floating Dockyard, etc are genuine demands that are of mutual benefit to FG and the communities.

“We need not taint these demands through violent approach as same can be achieved through the window of dialogue opened by the Federal Government.”
