We Demand 10 Per Cent As Host Community Fund – South-South Govs

The governors of the South-South States have demanded an increase from 2.5 percent to 10 percent as Host Community Trust Fund in the Petroleum Industry Bill

Chairman of the South-South Governors Forum and Governor of Delta State, Ifeanyi Okowa, stated this at the end of the forum’s meeting at the Government House, Port Harcourt on Monday night.

He also appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure that the fund for the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) be put in an escrow account pending the constitution of the commission’s board.
