PORT HARCOURT— Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has expressed the
belief that the disputed oil wells between Rivers and Bayelsa belong to his
state, urging the Surveyor-General of the Federation to resolve the boundary
dispute so the matter can be rested.

Speaking at Government House, Port Harcourt, yesterday, when he played
host to the Forum of Surveyor-General of States, the governor said the sense
of brotherhood between the two states had ensured that the dispute did not
get out of hand.

He said: “I call on the Surveyor-General of the Federation to help in resolving
the dispute between Rivers State and Bayelsa State. We believe that the oil
wells belong to us.

“We are brothers and there is no need for this conflict to linger. Imagine if it
was between two states with no relationship, it would have been worse.”
Earlier, Chairman of the Forum of Surveyors-General of States, Michael
Abiodun, commended the governor for the progress recorded in the state so
far, adding that government “acquired satellite and aerial imagery of the
entire state to enhance development.”

Surveyor-General of the Federation, Ebisintei Awudu, who also spoke, hailed
the development strides in the state, urging the state government to digitise
the Rivers State Surveyor-General’s office to enhance revenue generation.
