Community engagement must be holistic and must not be restricted to a few self-seeking and self-appointed leaders who continue to extort the oil companies without the monies trickling down to the ordinary people in the respective communities”, said Dr Azudialu-Obiejesi.

Dr. Ernest Azudialu-Obiejesi also called for operators and other stakeholders in the Oil and Gas sector to adopt and sign the Global Memorandum of Understanding (GMoU) with host communities as a way of improving the social and infrastructural projects in the community.
