The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has promised to continue oil exploration at the Kolmani oilfield in Gombe State if elected.
He stated this yesterday at the Pantami Township Stadium in Gombe during a campaign rally.
He said, “A vote for the APC is a vote for progress and prosperity for our dear country. I stand before you, the good people of Gombe State, to promise you that I will continue with the oil drilling and the development of oil discovered in the Kolmani oilfield and other places in the North.”
He also pledged that if elected the federal government would help the state to ensure the actualisation of the ongoing industrial park project.
