“We are a state government and we are representing our people. We will not stand watching while our people suffer. In this regards, we will file complaint against the GPOC if they don’t take care of their reckless activities in the Unity oilfields,” Lam said.

He blamed the national ministry of petroleum for accepting Oil Company which he said lacks international standards in the oil exploration.
