Ogun courts UK, S’Africa, NNPC to revive Olokola seaport


Ogun State government says it is working in partnershi­p with the United Kingdom, the South African government and the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporatio­n (NNPC) to revive the Olokola Liquefied Natural Gas (OKLNG) project and ensure that the state has a seaport soon.

Governor Dapo Abiodun said this on Tuesday while presenting the APC flags to the chairmansh­ip candidates for the July 24 local government elections in the state.

He said the partnershi­p would also help in creating a Forest Reserve in Ijebu East Local Government Area.

“That was where we were meant to have the OKLNG and the Olokola Port.

“This administra­tion will be working assiduousl­y with the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporatio­n (NNPC), not just to revive the project, but to ensure that the dream of having a port in Ogun State is realised in the life of this administra­tion,” he stated.
