A day after visiting Akwa Ibom state where he issued a directive to international oil companies to relocate to the Niger Delta, acting President Yemi Osinbajo is in Kaduna state on an official visit.
Osinbajo, in company of the ministers of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, as well as Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, touched down at the Kaduna International Airport 12:21pm. He was received by Governor Nasir El-Rufai and immediately proceeded to inspecting the airport which is expected to become busy with the shutting down of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.
He is also expected to inspect Abuja -Rigasa Railway terminal link road to the airport constructed by the state government within one months. While in Akwa Ibom, Osinbajo revealed that the federal government had made provision of N1 billion in the 2017 budget for the development of Ibaka deep seaport in Akwa Ibom.
“I have heard all the requests. We must trust and give this government the patience that is required to put things right. “We are working on modular refineries. Power stations must be established here. We must make our oil producing communities hub of petrochemical and gas industries. “We must attract private investments. The biggest benefit is to attract more private investments to the state,” Osinbajo advised.
