Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday said that the Muhammadu Buhari’s administration is promoting a new way of thinking and engagement that will secure the development of the Niger Delta and the entire country.


The new approach, he said, involves an active and effective collaboration between the government, the private sector and the communities.

He also assured that the new approach would ensures that the government finishes whatever is started in the region.

Prof. Osinbajo spoke during a meeting with members of a delegation from Bayelsa State regarding the $3.6B Brass Fertilizer & Petro-Chemical Company that is expected to come on steam soon.

The delegation which included executives of the company was led by Governor Seriake Dickson of Bayelsa State.

In a statement by the Senior Special Assistant on media and publicity, Laolu Akande, Osinbajo lamented that only 12% completion rate was recorded in several of the projects undertaken by the Niger Delta Development Commission in the past years, while the rest were abandoned.

According to him, some of the projects were not designed to succeed, but just for some people to make money.

Stressing that a new way of thinking is emerging, he gave instances of effective collaboration with the private sector, as he recalled the example of the NLNG being effective collaborations.

“The Buhari administration, this government is committed to finishing whatever we start. At the end of the day, we shall ensure that,” he affirmed, adding that the oil-producing communities have tremendous potentials.

While commending the Bayelsa State Governor for his proactive efforts, the Acting President commended the collaboration that is ongoing regarding the Brass company.

He said “This is what we describe as the New Vision: partnership between the Federal Government, the States, the communities and the private sector. This is the new way of thinking that is emerging, the New Vision.”

In his comments, the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu described the idea of the Brass Fertilizer & Petro-Chemical firm as “a game changer that we need to encourage, “

He said that such ideas have the potential to change the economic model in the Niger Delta.

The Acting President also received a delegation from the Seed Entrepreneurs Association of Nigeria, SEEDAN led by its President Mr. Richard Olafare and the Director-General of the National Agricultural Seed Council, Dr. P.O.Ojo.

In his remarks, Prof. Osinbajo assured the delegation that the Federal Government would do much more in the area of Agriculture, stressing that fertilizer and seed inputs are vital for the “agricultural revolution” that the Buhari administration is delivering.

He told members of the association, “your visit and contributions are very important to us. The President has said we must grow what we eat. We must be able to grow everything we eat. This is very important to us, we are very committed to food security. It is important to hear your views as we shape policy.”
