Daewoo gives June deadline to Quit N’Delta as Bayelsa wants decision reconsidered

Daewoo Engineering and Construction Company, one of the firms operating in the volatile Niger Delta region has given deadline of June to quit the region. But, the Bayelsa State Government is pleading with the company to reconsider its decision.

Daewoo cited severe “constraints and challenges” as reasons for wanting to leave the state. It says if nothing was done about the situation, the management would be left with no choice than to shut down operations.

But the government which made a passionate appeal on Wednesday through its state Partnership Agency, called on the management of the construction firm to approach its help desk for a resolution to its problems instead of planning to leave.

It noted that this would enable the government appraise their challenges and proffer solutions that would improve the company’s operations.

Director-General of the Agency, Mr. Stanley Braboke, who visited the State Project Manager of Daewoo Operations in Yenagoa, Mr Nak Choi, told the management that security had greatly improved in the state.

“The agency is delivering on its mandate to build peace around operational areas occupied by oil multinationals, construction firms and in the various communities in the state.

“We do not want communities, oil multinationals and construction companies to be at loggerheads with communities or be exposed to hazardous militancy in the state,” Braboke assured.

He said if the company has germane issues, the agency would act appropriately and urgently refer such matters to Governor Seriake Dickson for immediate action.
