By Onomiguren Agbamu

The Commissioner for Oil and Gas, Chief Vincent Oyibode, has charged host communities to maintain peace and live in unity for peace, and enhance sustainable development in the state.

Oyibode gave the charge, on Tuesday, during a meeting with Heritage Energy Operational Services Limited (HESOL) and some host communities in Isoko South and Isoko North Local Government Areas in Asaba.

While settling the over 10 years lingering disputes between the communities, he advised the communities to embrace peace and live as brothers, adding that we must work together as community to enhance development in our various communities.

The Commissioner assured host communities and companies operating in the state that the government would continue to create an enabling and peaceful environment for businesses to thrive with a view to ensuring a stronger and peaceful Delta to boost the economic life of Deltans.

Oyibode urged the company to maintain cordial relationships with their host communities and comply with their Corporate Social Responsibility obligations (CSR) for the development of their host communities.

Host communities present at the meeting commended the government for its effort to resolve the disputes between them and assured the commissioner that they would maintain peace and unity as neighbours to avoid communal crisis.

Communities that were present at the meeting included Otor-Owhe, Olomoro and Uzere.

In a communiqué signed by both communities and the company at the end of the meeting, it was established that Otor-Owhe is the host community of Well 9 in OML 30 while Olomoro is an impacted community.

Indigenes of both communities were filled with joy as it was resolved peacefully.
