The governor of an oil and agricultural producing state in Nigeria Ifeanyi Okowa has blasted the Federal Government for allowing Zamfara to manage its mineral deposits while restricting oil-producing states in the southern part of the country from controlling theirs.

“We cannot apply laws in such a manner that it becomes discriminatory because you cannot mine solid minerals somewhere in Zamfara and you can’t allow Niger Delta to manage their oil,” The Delta governor said.

“The South-South governors have been in the forefront for the devolution of power to states and local governments, Restructuring, resource control and security of the country, especially in the Niger Delta will be a major topic of discussion at the presidential parley coming up in Port Harcourt” Mr Okowa added.
