Tinubu: If Elected, I Will ‘Recharge’ Lake Chad

Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, has promised to’recharge’ Lake Chad if elected president in 2023.

Tinubu made the commitment on Tuesday at the start of commercial crude oil and gas production at the Kolmani Integrated Development Project.

When discussing food scarcity and terrorism, Tinubu said, “Every time we address the lack of food and the issues of terrorism, you will bring up Lake Chad.”

“Let me assure you, if I am elected the president, I will ‘recharge’ Lake Chad.”

Speaking about the oil drill production which was the first in the North, the former Lagos State governor stated that the inauguration was a “renewed hope” for the country.

He further linked the event to his manifesto titled ‘A Renewed Hope’.

Tinubu said, “While we were debating, I insisted that our title for the manifesto will be ‘a renewed hope’, not knowing that today will happen. And today, it is happening. It is a renewed hope for Nigeria.”

Located along the fields of Gombe and Bauchi, the Kolmani project, with Oil Prospecting Licence 809 and 810, lies in the Gongola Basin of the Upper Benue Trough, straddling the two Northern states.

The field, according to its promoters, is to start producing about 50,000 barrels of crude oil per day and holds over one billion barrels of crude oil reserves, shooting up Nigeria’s oil reserves to over 38 billion barrels.
