Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike yesterday said his government would not tolerate any closure of oil production facilities in the state.

He said under no circumstances should communities  take laws into their hands by preventing oil production companies from working.

Speaking  during  a meeting  with chairmen of Cluster Development Boards in Asari-Toru,  Akuku-Toru and Degema Local Government Areas with oil companies and security agencies yesterday, Wike directed immediate revival of the state steering committee on Cluster Development Boards.

He said: “I will not support any companies not to carry out  their corporate social responsibilities to their host communities.  However, communities  must not take laws into their hands. They must not stop production  by the operating companies.  Such actions will negatively affect the finances of the Federal Government, the state and  the local government areas”.

He said in cases where companies failed to act within the expectations of the communities, his government would mediate through  the steering committee on Cluster Development Boards.
