Jigawa State Governor, Mohammed Badaru Abubakar has said the exploration of crude oil in the State would commence during the Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration.
The Governor stated this on Wednesday evening while addressing the All Progressives Congress supporters after presenting flags to the party’s candidates in Jigawa North West.
He stated this while reacting to the exploration of oil in between Bauchi and Gombe States.
It was reported that President Muhammad Buhari had on Tuesday flagged off oil exploration in the two States.
Over one billion barrels of crude oil reserves and 500 billion standard cubic feet of gas exist in Kolmani River Oil and Gas Field.
According to him, Jigawa State is also blessed with an abundance of oil which would be explored during the Tinubu administration.
“By the grace of God, Jigawa oil will also be explored during the tenure of Tinubu for the benefit of the country and the State,” he said.
