Chairman of the ACF’s board of trustees, Mallam Adamu Fika who led the delegation, urged president Buhari to pursue oil exploration in the North to its logical conclusion.
Fika, reminded the president of the request made by the forum in 2016 for execution of Baro Port, the Mambilla Hydro power, revival of the agricultural sector, road construction and rehabilitation, and oil and gas exploration.
“In 2016, during a visit of the delegation of the forum, led by late Alhaji Yusuf Maitama Sule, Danmasanin Kano, the forum drew your attention to projects of concern to the North and of benefit to Nigeria at large.
“The projects included the Baro Port, the Mambilla Hydro power, self- sufficiency in agricultural produce, road construction and rehabilitation, and above all oil and gas exploration.
“It is pleasing to note that since then, the Baro port has been commissioned, while all other projects have been reactivated and now being implemented.
“We pray that those organs of Government charged with the responsibility for the implementation will double their efforts to ensure that these projects are executed fully to their logical conclusion within reasonable time,” he said.
