Nigeria’s oil and gas industry has lost huge investments due to the non-passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB), Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State has said.

Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, has condemned the statement made by the Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, following Southern governors’ call for restructuring and fiscal federalism.

The Senate President had after observing the Eid prayers at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, Thursday, faulted the Southern Governors’ resolutions, asking them to first start the restructuring in their respective states.


Okowa who spoke at the empowerment scheme of the minority leader of the House, Hon. Ndudi Elumelu, on Saturday in Asaba, Delta State said it was utterly wrong to vilify the southern governors.

The governor insisted that Nigerians must gather at a table to discuss for the good and future of the country.
