President Muhammadu Buhari has restated the determination of his

administration to restore the country to the “good old days of

accountability”.
Speaking at a meeting Tuesday with the Director, Global Upstream of Shell

Oil Company at the State House, Abuja, President Buhari said he will leave

a legacy of improved infrastructure, particularly in the power sector, and

also ensure better security in the Niger Delta.
“It is only by doing this that investor morale and confidence will return,

and the economy will be positioned on the path of growth,” the President

said.
President Buhari, who commended Shell for their faith in the economy and

staying power, gave assurances on some issues of concern raised by the

company.
On the protracted issue of cash calls, the President assured that the

Federal Executive Council will soon consider a proposal for the easing of

unpaid arrears owed by the government.
President Buhari said that the security of oil infrastructure will

continue to be prioritized side-by-side with dialogue with the

stakeholder-communities in the Niger Delta.
He, however, urged oil companies to take more responsibility in the

protection of oil installations to complement the efforts of Nigerian Navy

in the region.
In his remarks, the Shell Director, Mr. Andrew Brown, informed the

President of the resumption of oil exportation through the Forcados

terminal following its restoration.
He called for continued protection by the Nigerian Navy in view of

repeated threats of attack by militants.
Brown commended the anti-corruption posture of the Buhari administration

as well as the efforts to streamline and stabilize the economy for long

term projects, saying all the efforts will go a long way to reinforce

Shell investment plans in Nigeria.
