Nigeria: Bayelsa, Navy to Partner Against Oil Theft

BY CHRIS EZE

Yenagoa — Bayelsa State Governor Seriake Dickson says his administration would partner with the Nigerian Navy to check oil theft and illegal refineries in the state.

He gave the assurance in Yenagoa yesterday during the 2013 Nigerian Navy ceremonial sunset held at the Central Naval Command.

Represented by his Deputy, retired Rear Admiral John Jonah, the governor described the Navy as the main economic access base of the nation, but regretted that illegal bunkering and crude oil refineries had crippled the economy as well as devastated the ecosystem in the Niger Delta region.
