Deputy President of the Senate Ovie Omo-Agege has urged  oil companies operating in the Niger Delta region to relocate their headquarters to the region.

Mr Yomi Odunuga, his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity  in astatement on  Saturday in Abuja, said that Omo-Agege made the call in his home–Orogun — in Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta.

Omo-Agege said that  there  was  need for  oil companies that left the  region to return, given the  prevailing peace and accelerating development in the region.

He reiterated his concern about the alleged plot to move  the headquarters of the Nigerian Gas Company Ltd. in Ekpan-Warri to Abuja.

He said that the relocation of the headquarters of oil multinational companies to the Niger Delta would speed up  development of the area, create job opportunities for youths and reinforce the atmosphere of peace in the region.

He said: “I’m sure the message has been sent that they cannot move, they must remain.

Speaking on the cleared ministerial nominees, Omo-Agege, said  that the   43 nominees had passed through security screening before their names were sent to the Senate.

He expressed support for ongoing moves towards total reconciliation within All Progressives Congress.

He acknowledged and thanked the Urhobo who voted for him to become senator for second term.

He also said that President Muhammadu Buhari had been magnanimous to Delta Central by supporting him to become deputy president of the Senate and by appointing Mr Festus Keyamo as a minister designate.(NAN)
