Gov of Delta State calls for the review of surveillance contracts



Ifeanyi Okowa, the governor of Delta State, has pushed for a review of surveillance agreements on oil facilities that includes host communities in an effort to reduce the high rate of oil theft in the nation.

Okowa made the statement on Monday in Asaba, the state capital, after hosting a delegation from the Federal Government focused on fighting oil theft, led by Chief Timipre Sylva, the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources.

He asserted that the success of protecting the country’s oil and gas assets will be ensured by assessing oil surveillance contracts based on the performance of the contractors and engagement of host communities.
