Following President Muhammadu Buhari’s order, the exploration of crude oil has officially started in the north-east of Nigeria.
Senator Abdullahi Maikano shared the photos of the beginning of the search on his Facebook account.
Nigerians in their reactions to the news commend their leader President Buhari and the incumbent government.
