Our administration is committed to finishing whatever we start, says Osinbajo
Our administration is committed to finishing whatever we start, says Osinbajo

The federal government is promoting a new way of thinking and engagement that would secure the development of the Niger Delta and the entire country, Acting President Yemi Osinbajo said.

He made this known on Tuesday in a meeting with a delegation from Bayelsa, led by Governor Seriake Dickson.

He told the delegation, which included Executives of the 3.6 billion dollar Brass Fertilizer and Petro-Chemical Company expected to come on stream soon, that the new approach, called the New Vision, involved active and effective collaboration between government, the private sector and communities.

Osinbajo explained that “this approach will ensure that we finish whatever we start.”

He pointed to effective collaboration with the private sector and cited the NLNG as one instance of such effective collaborations.

He said the new approach was adopted “because only 12 per cent completion rate was recorded in many projects undertaken by Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs in the past years, with the rest abandoned.

“The Buhari administration is committed to finishing whatever we start.”

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

He added that “such ideas have the potential to change the economic model in the Niger Delta.”
