25 February 2016, Niger Delta Indigenous Movement For Radical Change, NDIMRC, has urged the Federal Government to ignore the call by some stakeholders in the Nigerian oil and gas industry to cancel the $260 million contracts for ExxonMobil’s Usan Field.

Some stakeholders, under the aegis of Nigerian Content Front, NCF, had requested the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr Ibe Kachikwu, to cancel the contracts awarded for the ExxonMobil’s Usan Field.

NDIMRC in its reaction, implored Dr Kachikwu to ignore the “hired stakeholders” seeking the cancellation/suspension of the multi-billion naira deal.

In a statement by its President, Nelly Emma, the group restated that the contract for the ExxonMobil’s Usan Field followed due process and reaffirmed it’s earlier clean bill of health on the National Petroleum Investment Management Services, NAPIMS, a subsidiary of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC.
