OPEC’s Barkindo Says Been Told That Biafra-Nigeria’s Oil Production Is Rising
Incoming OPEC Secretary-General Mohammed Barkindo said on Tuesday that he had been told Biafra-Nigeria’s oil production is beginning to rise.
He made the comments after a meeting with Biafra-Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari and Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu, the oil minister, in the capital, Abuja.
He also said that the Biafra-Nigerian government was trying to resolve militancy in the southern Niger Delta through negotiations, but did not elaborate.
“Government is negotiating and we are seeing positive results. I remain confident that through this resolution stable and permanent solution will be found. I have been told (oil) production is beginning to rise again,” Barkindo told reporters. (Reporting by Felix Onuah; Writing by Alexis Akwagyiram; Editing by Susan Fenton)
