Worried by the increasing protest against the planned relocation of the supply base of Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company (SNEPCo) from the Oil and Gas Free Zone, Onne, to Lagos State, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, is set to meet with stakeholders to ensure that the issues are resolved.
A highly-placed source told THISDAY that the governor would in two weeks meet with the top management of Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Limited, Nigerian Ports Authority (NPA), Oil and Gas Free Zones Authority (OGFZA) and other relevant stakeholders over planned relocation of the Supply Base of SNEPCO from the Oil and Gas Free Zone, Onne, Rivers State to Lagos.
The meeting is coming on the heels of an aborted protest by the Rivers State Youth Federation.
The intervention of the Amanyanabo of Okochiri Kingdom in Okirika Local Government Area of Rivers State, King Ateke Tom, and operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) on Wednesday stopped a massive march of a Rivers Youth group at the supply base of Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company (SNEPCo) in the Oil and Gas Free Zone, Onne.
