The minister of state for petroleum, Ibe Kachikwu has revealed that President Buhari has not allocated any oil bloc since he came into office.

Kachikwu said “Since we came into office, the government has not allocated any oil bloc.   “The president has said that he will need to correct the mess created by the past administrations before we begin to think of giving out such advantages.

“The president has emphasised to us, the ministers that there should be no unjustifiable favour and any action we take we must be able to defend it.

“When the time for the oil bloc allocation comes, it will follow very clear due process.”

The minister said this at the Town Hall meeting organised by the Federal Government for people in the South-South region.

Kachikwu also said he is also in support of giving back to the Niger-Delta region that produces the crude oil that generates income for the nation.

The minister promised that individuals with skill and finance will be considered when the Federal Government wants to allocate the oil blocs.

He also said he has reached out to the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA) asking them to lay down their arms.
