He said: “We commend you on the remarkable success you have recorded since your appointment and urge you to continue. We also want you to intervene in the issue of illegal oil bunkering.”
Dikio promised to intensify awareness on bunkering, describing it as a detrimental contributor to the health of the people.
He asked persons involved in bunkering to redirect their energy into palm oil business.
He said: “Rather than engage in kpofire business which endangers the health of the people in the region and in addition destroy our environment and ecosystem, it is better to go into palm oil production.
“That is a very lucrative business. A ton of palm oil currently above $5,000 which is a lot more than a ton of crude oil can fetch.”
