Three weeks after ordering NNPC officials to go and search for oil in the Northern region, President Buhari has again directed NNPC to begin the search for crude oil and gas from the Benue Trough.

This was disclosed by the Group Managing Director of the oil corporation, Maikanti Baru, when he received a delegation from the Benue State Government at the corporation’s headquarters in Abuja yesterday August 16th. The Benue Trough is a major geological formation underlying a large part of Nigeria, and extending about 1,000 kilometer north-east from the Bight of Benin to Lake Chad.
