Achianga, who stated this in his palace on Wednesday argued that such strategic action was necessary to calm the frayed nerves of local residents and further strengthen Mobil\host communities’ relationship.
The royal father, who also made a case for the relocation of the Jetty from the neighbouring Port Harccourt, Rivers State, noted that with those facilities in the state, ownership by association would be assured as employments, revenue generation and associated business would be facilitated.
To stem incessant environmental degradation and gas flaring, Achianga urged the Federal Government to work towards raising the revenue allocation profile of states for them to have enough resources to tackle the problems.
While commending key development strides in the state and the country, the royal father hailed President Goodluck Jonathan and the outgoing government of Chief Godswill Akpabio, noting that under their leaderships, the country has witnessed socio-economic transformations that would serve as springboard for successive governments to further develop the nation.
Besides, the monarch commended Akpabio for recognition accorded some village heads and urged the administration to also grant recognitions to some omitted villages and clans.
Also worrisome to the monarch was the problem of abandoned projects handled by the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) including the Atabrikang Model School in Ibeno, for which he sought the intervention of government for the contractors to be re-mobilized to sites.
