Akeredolu Thanks President Buhari As Bitumen Exploitation Commences In Ondo by OndoFirstBorn(m): 3:38pm On Jul 29
Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN has appreciated President Muhammadu Buhari for the role he played in the actualization of the Bitumen exploitation in the state.

The Governor who took to his twitter account to share the "Journey of Hope" of the Bitumen project said it's understandable that a sustainable project takes time but a promise is a promised that must be fulfilled.

The Governor in another tweet appreciated President Buhari for his commitment to the project through the Presidential Economic Diversification Initiative which was launched in 2017.

In his tweets: "We understand that sustainable development takes time but a promise is a promise. When we say it, we always do it. #DevelopOndo."

"I must also appreciate @MBuhari for his commitment to this project through the Presidential Economic Diversification Initiative which started around the beginning of my administration."

Quite a number of people are on Facebook calling the bitumen project status a ploy to decieve. They ought to know that there is a fundamental difference between what we are seeing here and what we have seen in previous years; this time, *this company has a Mining Lease which is the first one ever granted in Nigeria for Mining Bitumen.*

The Journey of Ondo Bitumen of Hope;

- February 2017 - Expression of Interest from Southwest Bitumen Limited (SWB) to work with Ondo State on Bitumen Exploration

- March 23rd 2017 - Presidency engages states and requests to provide focus industries for diversification

- Nov 7th 2017 - President Buhari shows full commitment to bitumen exploration project in Budget speech.

- August 2020 - SWB invites state to inspect facility and equipment to commence production.

Still a midget when compared with oil and gas infrastructure.

You can do better sir, stop celebrating mediocrity

Some people have been calling me out based on my comment, so I wish to clear the air.

What I meant by midget in comparison with oil and gas infrastructure is exemplified by this picture of a bitumen plant.

I am saying the governor should not be thanking anyone for this, it is purely political and serves no one any good.
See what Akeredolu is celebrating and judge.
If you are satisfied then no issues, but please don’t get personal by insulting me or anyone close to me.

In a federal system of government, states are in competition to have the best infrastructure and best business policy to attract more cash flow.

Each state in Nigeria should be in competition to attract extra money and cooperation from FG and not be against them.

Come to think about it.

I think there is alot of infrastructural development in the Buhari Era compare to others.

Assuming 2015 resession never happened and oil trade above $70/barrel from 2015 to now.

No body body have complained
