Buhari Signs Petroleum Resources University Bill


President Muhammadu Buhari has pledged continued support for the socio-economic development of the Niger Delta region.
The President gave the assurance at a brief ceremony in the State House to sign the bill establishing the University of Petroleum Resources, Effurun, Delta State, into law.
“This administration is fully committed to supporting the Niger Delta in its endeavours to achieve socio-economic development,” he said on Tuesday in Abuja.
President Buhari, however, appealed to all communities in the region to strive for peace through dialogue in resolving all conflicts not only among them but also with business entities and the authorities.
With the signing of the bill into law, the path has been cleared for the establishment of the specialised university in the Niger Delta, charged with training and research in petroleum technologies.

This information was contained in a statement issued by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Garba Shehu.
