HOSCON: FG to pay gas flare penalty to N’Delta communities

National Chairman Host communities of Nigeria, HOSCON, Dr Mike Emuh has inaugurated the Delta Ijaw working committee of the body with an appeal to the Federal Government (FG) to pay 13% derivation fund to host communities.

Speaking at the ceremony in Warri, Delta state, Dr Emuh said the FG had approved some money from gas flare penalties to be paid to the Gas Flare Trust fund for host communities,  urging that the money be paid before the end of the first quarter of 2020.

He commended the Ijaw nation for their dogged fight for development of Niger Delta region, adding that the 41 man executive of    Ijaw central working committee of HOSCON with Rev Ebide Obigha as Chairman, Chief Larry .O., Vice Chairman and Mr Jackson Timiyan as Secretary, should work with the national leadership to continue to attract development to the region.

He said the FG had seen reasons with  the agitation by HOSCON for gas flare money to be paid to oil communities, adding that HOSCON  will also sustain its agitation for 13% derivation fund currently paid to state governments of the Niger Delta region to be paid to oil communities.
He further lauded the Ijaw, saying they should be united to achieve greater success with the body. Chairman of the newly inaugurated body, Rev Obigha in his speech, said the body would work closely with the national leadership of HOSCON to bring development to Ijaw communities.
