In 2016 President Buhari directed the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to commence exploration of crude-oil in the north-eastern part of Nigeria. Buhari led administration had intensified efforts in search of oil everywhere, other than the Niger Delta that large quantities of crude oil could be found along the Chad, Cameroon, Anambra and Benue basins. Then some Nigerians mocked Buhari that he wouldn’t likely to find anything but WATER that it’s a waste of resources, there is no distant future in petroleum.
Today, President Buhari will flag off drilling of crude oil at the Kolmani River- II well, a site between Gombe and Bauchi States. The drilling of the Kolmani River-II well, falls into two deliverables contained in Dr Baru’s 12 Business Focus Areas (BUFA) which are; to increase crude oil and gas reserves and production as well as intensify the search for petroleum resources in the nation’s inland basins.
This is a welcome development, even if the world switched to an energy source independent of petroleum, the fact is that petroleum is an integral part of modern life in terms of the things it is used to make beyond gasoline and other fuels. Such as plastics, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics use various aspects of petroleum as foundations in chemical reactions et
