OML54: Host communities accuse NDPR of operating non-functional MoU
Ekpeye Oil, Gas and Pipelines Host Families Association, says the Memorandum of Understanding, signed between Niger Delta Petroleum Resources, NDPR and the host communities of Ogbelle, Obumeze and Oshibokor, is not functional.
Chairman of the Association, Chidi Dogini, who disclosed this, accused the oil firm of deploying what he described as “divide and rule tactics” in order to carry out their operations in Ahoada East LGA of Rivers State.
Dogini urged the oil firm to make public the signed MoU for proper monitoring and implementation, for the purpose of bringing the desired development to the host families, communities and Ekpeye ethnic nationality at large, in line with their yearning and aspiration.
He urged NDPR to adhere to the Local Content Act for a lasting peace, regretting that the corporate social responsibility of all the oil firms operating in the area, was marred with irregularities and disregard to the host families and communities.
