Host Communities Of Nigeria Producing Oil And Gas
Some communities hosting oil and gas in Rivers have written a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari demanding that the 13% derivation accruing to them should henceforth be paid to them directly rather than to the state government.
With the discovery of hydrocarbon deposits in the Kolmani River II well in the Upper Gongola Basin section of Benue Trough can be a plus to the Nigerian economy, Mele Kyari, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation boss, has said.
He also said that revenues, job employments, tax applicable to the states and other benefits that could be used to assuage those affected by these practices are rather hosted in cities far from their exploitation.

President Muhammadu Buhari has assented to the bill amending the Deep Offshore and Inland Basin Production Sharing Contract (DOIBPSCA) act.
