The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has promised to continue oil search in all frontier basins in the country and particularly recharge the Lake Chad if given the mandate in 2023.

He said he would intensify oil search on Borno basin, Sokoto, Bida, Anambra and other basins in the interest of the nation.

He spoke on Tuesday at the ground-breaking ceremony for oil drilling at Kalmani Area of Gongola Basin now located between Bauchi and Gombe States.

Presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari, the ceremony was the first oil drilling project in the north.

Tinubu commended Buhari for what he called historic achievement, saying he had always believed every part of the country is richly blessed and should be supported to fully develop their potential and contribute to national prosperity.

A statement from Tinubu’s Media Office, signed by Tunde Rahman quoted the APC’s candidate as saying, “The effort to find hydrocarbon deposits in our frontier basins has now paid off. 

“The successful delivery of this project will elevate energy security for the country, promote economic growth and prosperity for all our people.”
