The President responded to requests from Ogoni leaders, including the resuscitation of oil and gas production in Ogoniland, which comprises Eleme, Khana, Gokana, and Tai Local Government Areas of Rivers State. He emphasized the need to heal the wounds of the past, prepare for the future, and uplift the livelihoods of the people in a free Nigeria.



President Tinubu also commended the former Governor of Rivers State and Minister of the FCT for hus dedication to alleviating the plight of the Ogoni people. He expressed his commitment to deepening collaboration with Ogoni leaders to create mutually beneficial economic opportunities for Ogoniland and Nigeria at large.



The Ogoni people are prepared for the commencement of oil and gas production in Ogoniland, with the potential unbundling of OML 11, which will contribute $5 billion per annum to Nigeria's GDP. The people-driven vision of the Ogoni Economic Rebirth Project aims to revitalize the economic nerves of the land and bring prosperity to the region.
