The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has celebrated the recent discovery of crude oil in the state.

The Lagos APC’s comments were contained in a statement issued by Publicity Secretary, Joe Igbokwe.

It reads:

At a time Nigeria is being held hostage, with multi billion worth of our oil and gas facilities being blown up left and right with reckless abandon, turning the whole country into total darkness and causing the country to lose 800,000 barrels of crude oil daily, it is good news to have Lagos, the land of civilization to join the club of oil producing States.

In the fullness of time we know that the wise and civilized Lagosians will never behave primitively like the economic saboteurs from the Niger Delta who militarize their environment, destroy oil and gas installations, put Nigeria in total darkness, destroy their environment, pollute their lands and waters, hurt their 13% derivation, and render their own people jobless.

Lagos economy has been on the rise since 1999, competing effectively with many countries in Africa including Cameroun, Ghana, Senegal, Cote’de voire and with the advent of oil fields in Lagos, we have no doubt that it will grow far bigger than these countries in few years to come.

This monumental achievement in Lagos has left a huge lesson that God has not finished with Nigeria as oil or gold can be found in any part of Nigeria irrespective of tribe, tongue, culture or tradition.

Coming at a time when Lagos has recorded even a surplus in Revenue generation in the first quarter of 2016 , Lagos APC believes that His Excellency Governor Akinwunmi Ambode will leave an indelible mark, the type never seen in the history of Lagos.
