Nigeria tasks oil firms to show commitment on gas flaring elimination

Apr 22, 2005 02:00 AM

Oil companies have been charged to show adequate commitment by conforming to the Federal Government's plan of eliminating gas flaring in Nigeria by 2008.
This is part of a 22-point communique adopted at the end of the second consultative forum with captains of oil and gas industry and other stakeholders in Nigeria.

It noted that the underpinning issues for all stakeholders in the Niger Delta is how to tackle the seemingly endemic poverty in the region, adding that statistics from the dateline survey conducted for the Niger Delta Development (NDDC) master plan shows that over 70 % of people live below poverty line.
Poverty in the region stands in contradiction with its abundant resource endowment and demanded for intervention to alleviate poverty through improving agricultural development and productivity in the rural areas.
