HOSCON uncovers 50 oil wells in 12 Anambra communities
By Nwabueze Okonkwo
ONITSHA—THE Host Communities Producing Oil and Gas, HOSCON, yesterday, said it had discovered no fewer than 50 oil wells in about 12 communities in Anambra state waiting for exploration.
The state chairman of HOSCON, Anthony Chiokwe who disclosed this yesterday during their general meeting at Nsugbe in Oyi Local Government Area, said contrary to the allusions by some people that the oil in the state was not found in commercial quantity, if the 50 oil wells could be harnessed, a lot of revenues would be generated by both the federal and state governments, as well as the host communities.
Chiokwe further disclosed that this number of oil wells “were arrived at following his mandate to all his members to go to their various communities and bring a comprehensive list of oil wells, take photographs of such wells, discuss with various town union leaders and their traditional rulers and find out if they are interested in exploring the oil deposit in their localities.”
He mentioned the six communities where the oil wells have so far been discovered as Ogwu-Ikpelle and Ogwu-Aniocha communities of Ogbaru Local Government Area; Anaku, Umerum and Omor communities in Ayamelum Local Government Area; Aguleri in Anambra East Local Government Area, Abagana in Njikoka Local Government Area and Ifitedunu, Ukpo and Umunnachi in Dunukofia Local Government Area and Okija in Ihiala Local Government Area.
Flanked by other executive members of HOSCON, including the Deputy Chairman, Anene Onyilegbe Gregory; State Woman Leader, Hon. Uju Izuakor and the National Community Liaison Officer, NCLO, representing Anambra state HOSCOM, Mrs. Felicia Nwankwo,, Chiolwe disclosed that Aguleri alone has 26 oil wells, while Ogwu-Ikpelle has as much as 16 oil wells, just like Ogwu-Aniocha has five wells, Anake has nine wells, Umerum, three wells, two wells in Abagana, while Okija and Umunnachi wells were said to have been overflown and are currently spilling.
He explained that most of the oil wells were discovered by Shell Development Corporation in the past years, while Sterling Global Resources, an Indian company is currently exploring one of the 16 oil wells at Ogwu-Ikpelle, just as Orient Petroleum resources is busy exploring some other oil wells in Anambra West, Anambra East and Ayamelum council areas of the state.
In his speech, the Deputy Chairman, Onyilegbe appealed to the state government to urgently set up an Oil Development Commission like in other oil producing states, to enable the federal ministry of petroleum resources pay the federal government approved 13 percent oil derivation fund to the state, for onward transmission to the host communities.
At Omor oil field, the Secretary-General of the town union Joseph Nonyelum confirmed that the oil wells were discovered by Shell many years ago, but now Orient Petroleum Resources are exploring the oil at Omor and Umerum communities.
The National Chairman of, HOSCON, Prince Mike Emuh has during his recent visit to Anambra state where he had a crucial meeting with traditional rulers in the state, disclosed that the federal government had recognized Anambra’s status as an oil producing state, adding that about 10 modular refineries had been approved by the government each to be cited in each of the oil producing states in the country, out of which one of the refineries would be cited in Anambra.
Emuh further told the traditional rulers that the federal government also approved the employment of 10,000 youths to serve as oil surveillance squad from all the oil producing states, out of which 1,000 youths are to be employed in Anambra state, adding that he was in the state to ask the royal fathers to mention a particular place where the modular refinery would be cited in the state and to prepare for the selection of the youths to be employed.
Emuh who is also a member of federal government’s governing council on petroleum, also handed over all the documents containing the approvals from the federal government and a copy of HOSCON’s constitution to the royal fathers.

If only resource control is allowed, No state or region in Nigeria will lack in terms of natural and mineral resource deposit. Restructure this country and watch Nigeria move from Third World country to a developed country.

These people are confirmed liars i wonder why vanguard is bothers with them. Last time they announced federal government confirmed Anambra's oil producing status. The issue of who the oil wells still needs to be resolved by National Boundary Commission. I dont understand what everyone jumping around for.
National chairman of Host Communities Producing Oil and Gas, HOSCON, Prince Mike Emuh who disclosed this yesterday at Anambra State Traditional Rulers’ House, Government House, Awka, while briefing traditional rulers in the state, said the Federal Government had also approved 10 modular refineries in all the 11 oil producing states in the country out of which one of the refineries would be cited in Anambra.

Blue3k:Why are you a pained bigot. If this oil Wells were discovered in the north, would you question the authenticity of the news. For your information, these oil wells are in existence irrespective of the media publicity.

|Re: HOSCON Uncovers 50 Oil Wells In 12 Anambra Communities by Fatherofdragons: 8:23pm On May 02, 2018|
By God's grace, with good governance, the proceeds from this oil will boost the state's IGR, and can be used to fund other sections of the state's economy, thereby creating jobs.

Blue3k:Oboy I have been observing you here, why good news about southeast giving you sleepless night, why do you choose to be a saddest, seriously I don't know what is wrong with you Yorub.as? Bitter set of people, what do you know about Anambra? Why getting worried and disturbed over something that's not in your enclave? You are so daft to make ordinary research, only two wells are in boundaries disputes between Anambra, Enugu and Kogi, more than 99% of the towns they listed has no boundary with both states, if we are being deceive allow us be, you know nothing about Anambra except the ones you read online, focus on your region. Bitter soul, always jumping from Second Niger bridge threads Onitsha port and Anambra oil, they use Anambra swear for you?

This is not news anymore. All of igboland has oil. We are still wise enough not to hope or depend on it. We have to continue to grow our indigenous Manufacturing, Real estate, Educational and Retail dominance while diversifying our homegrown economy.
Let's us all continue to oxygenate our entrepreneurial drive and not lose focus. The post oil era is fast approaching.
One love umunnem.

Look at the way you camped on this particular thread since afternoon pouring out your heart.
The oil is not in your state but you are here crying over what does not concern you. This was how you have been hovering over everything that concerns Anambra. Are you sure you are not mad?

Don't mind that guy! He likes to pretend he's a fair minded and detribalised person, but i've seen through his pretence. He's always posting nonsense on developments in the SE either to mock us or to praise his master Buhari.
This lingering issue of Kogi (forget Enugu, as that is brothers issue that can easily be settled in-house) dragging oil well with Anambra...there's more to it than meets the eye. I've maintained there are people who out of jealousy and hatred for Ndigbo, do not want to see us make huge benefit from our oil deposits. This is why the boundary issue has still not been resolved since about 2012 when it started (how difficult can it be to delineate the boundary between Anambra and Kogi...is it rocket science); this is why they removed the areas with highest concentration of oil and gas in Alaigbo and placed in Rivers state (now you know why Imo and Abia have such pathetic derivation receipts, and why some use it to laugh at us saying that just one of their states produces more than Imo and Abia combined); this is why the federal gov't is yet to gazette the status of Anambra as oil producing (we can't have those 'inyamiris' making so much money can we...that's not in the script); this is why proven reserves of oil and gas in Anambra is ignored by the federal gov't of Buhari (you never hear Maikanti Baru or anyone else say anything about oil and gas in Anambra...meanwhile they're building a gas pipeline all the way to Kano to deliver gas while no mention is made of Anambra) while they spend millions of dollars searching for oil and gas in the desert.
This news report go pain some mofos, hence they'll look for anything negative just to rain on our parade...like the guy you quoted harping on about Buharis' federal gov't still not having officially recognised Anambra as oil producing and reminding us of the boundary tussle with Kogi.
Why wasn't this thread taken to the front page....or did i miss it?

Dumb illiterate typing rubbish. How does it concern you if we choose to believe whatever HOSCON said? Is it your business over what we choose to believe? Please go to psychiatrist hospital and check yourself.
