Mele Kyari: pushes for 2.5 percent to oil communities in PIB

Mele Kolo Kyari, the NNPC boss may have incurred the wrath of oil communities by asking the National Assembly to peg at 2.5 percent oil profit payable to host communities, according to the Petroleum Industry Bill.

While the House of Representatives in the version of the bill passed provides 5 percent to the communities, the Senate put it at 3 percent.

Both chambers are scheduled to meet this week to harmonise the two bills before it is passed for President Buhari’s signature.

But Kyari at a forum in Abuja on Monday, urged the National Assembly to lower the share of oil producing communities to 2.5 percent.

“It was a very, very considered proposal from the executive that we should make it 2.5%,” Kyari told an oil summit in Abuja, adding that it makes business sense and would be “sufficient to deliver value to these communities”.

He warned that too large a stake would drive big oil companies out of Nigeria, leaving a gap that local producers would struggle to fill.

“We are at the verge of losing them. That is the truth,” he said of the oil majors.

Senator Sabi Abdullahi, speaking on behalf of the Senate president, said the two chambers would agree on a finalised package before recess this month.

“It is not possible for us to abandon this before we go on vacation,” Abdullahi said.

But Kyari spoke on a day that the umbrella political group for the oil producing region of Niger Delta, PANDEF, demanded 10 percent.

Chief Edwin Clark, leader of the group, whose speech was delivered in Abuja, described the PIB, satanic, unjust and embarrassing to Niger Delta.

He said it has dashed the hope of the people of the Niger Delta region.

Clark said the provision that allocated a huge 30% of profits for further frontier oil exploration in the north was a source of concern.

He said it is an absurd provision especially in a fast changing world as investment shifts away from fossil fuel.

Clark declared that the region has had enough of the post-colonial oppression and will be resisting it.

He said the bill does not reflect the long clamour by the people of the region for equity, fairness and justice.

He warned that Niger Delta will take their destinies in their hands and deny International Oil Companies (IOCs) entry into the region should the National Assembly fail to reverse the passed bill.

“Given the depth of ingratitude expressed and delivered after decades of exploitation and neglect of the region, the entire people of the Niger Delta region, for and on behalf of the host communities, vehemently reject the following aspects of the bill: the 3% and 5% of Operating Expenditure granted to the Host Communities; the fraudulent and provocative 30% provision for the Frontier Exploration Fund.

“And now demand: the PIB must be reversed, reviewed and amended to ensure that the Oil-Bearing Communities must now receive not less than 10% of Operating Cost.

“If this is not done, the Niger Delta people may be forced to take their destiny into their own hands and all IOCs may find themselves denied access to their oil activities in such communities.”

Governors of Southern states at a Forum in Lagos on Monday supported 5 percent share for oil communities.

“The Forum rejects the proposed 3% and support the 5% share of the oil revenue to the host community as recommended by the House of Representatives;

“The forum also rejects the proposed 30% share of profit for the exploration of oil and gas in the basins”, Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of oil producing Ondo state said.

Oil is becoming obsolete... Let it dry now, it's source of Nigeria's problems.

Anyways wether we like it or not climate change will destroy those who fail to adapt.

The world is giving us too much but we're not happy due to Gridness, we're destroying the earth. Industrial revolution bring us nothing but misery.

You will not see or hear the loquacious imps from the oil producing states in the south speak out against the injustice that is about to be meted out to their communities. Where are the 'pregnant' Wike and the fat Asari now that the terrorists from the north are about to shortchange them. They only find their voices when it comes to IPOB matter. Now we know who the real slaves are

What will make oil producing communities take 2.5% while the parasites take huge 30% cuts? This is part of biased system we are still talking about that the president and northern elites are using to split the country.

The 30% to the north should worry everyone, both southerners and northerners.

Why ?

It is being earmarked for a failed cause, decades of forced oil exploration in the north has not yielded positive result, this money is being planned to pay northern politicians and their contractor collaborators to fraudulently search something that will not be found. They will simply share the money among themselves. The north and other parts of the country has more pressing problems that can be solved with this money.

2. This is money that ordinarily should have gone to the federation account and be shared to all states and local governments in the country, if the 30% payout is not stopped every state will lose this hugh money to a few northern politicians and their contractor collaborators.

3. 30% to the north and 3% to the host communities is insulting to the host communities, how do you think the host communities will respond to the insult on the long run, this will not encourage a peaceful oil exploration activity.

4. They are planning a legal stealing of the oil wealth of the south and the revenue from the industrial activities in the south. Since they are targeting nnpc funds, even profits from petrol importation and consumption in the south will now be forwarded to the north.

5. This is Abacha's PTF version 2. Remove oil subsidy, channel the profits of the oil mostly consumed in the south to the north.

Oil is a curse. If not for oil, north won't be holding others back into their parasitic relationship.

Now, that they know the country might split and the food basket taken away from their mouths, they are now desperate to make oil happens in their own lands by all means.

Because they know the facts, not all these empty shouting by Clark & Co, 3% is not enough, they want 10 percent for doing nothing?, Dangote is opening a refinery in Lagos State, Useless southern states jointly, or severely can’t even open one petrol Chemical refinery despite their comparative advantage, yet they are shouting Federal Government?

Any attempt to increase the percentage for host communities will lead to an increase in their 30%.

Every oil producing state has three Senators and many House of Representatives members. This is the best time for them to stand up and speak and defend the interest of their communities.

Do you need stone free rice or any food stuff from Benue State?
