The Senator representing Kogi East at the National Assembly, Isaac Mohammed Alfa has urged the Federal Government to proclaim Kogi as one of the oil producing States.


Addressing National Assembly Press Corps at the end of his meeting with the Ibaji Oil and Gas Committee on Monday, Senator Alfa said only when Kogi was recognised as Oil Producing State that the mutual suspicion and the tension in the oil area would stop.



He, however, called on the people of Ibaji community to remain law abiding while he pressurised the federal government through the instrumentality of legislative advocacy, to do the needful, in order for peace to return to the oil producing community.


“The essence of the meeting was to first and foremost impress on our people to remain law abiding while I continue to liaise with the Senate and the Federal Government to declare Kogi State ‘an Oil Producing State’”, he said.


Speaking further, Senator Alfa, who was sworn in a month ago, berated the Anambra State Government for laying claim to the Oil Community, adding that the N4bn claimed to have been invested in Ibaji Oil by Anambra was actually a fuss.
