News: Northern House of Assembly Speakers  rose  from a forum in Katsina State, with a call on the Federal Government to revisit the issue of oil exploration in northern parts of the country, and commence it this year as earlier planned…

Does it occur to these chaps that with the low price of crude oil that it makes little economic sense to engage in the wild goose chase of oil exploration in the North? Which oil company would risk there hard money in such worthless investment?
