In further efforts to address the Niger Delta situation, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, is to visit a number of oil communities in the region.
His visit which is billed to take him across some Niger Delta states begins Monday, January 16, 2017, with a visit to Delta State, after which he is also to visit Bayelsa and Rivers States at a later date to be announced soon.
According to a statement by Laolu Akande, a Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the vice president, at these visits, Osinbajo will lead high-level delegations of the Federal Government that will interact with leaders and representatives of the oil-producing communities.
This, he said is in continuation of ongoing outreach efforts of the Buhari administration towards a long lasting and permanent resolution of the Niger Delta crisis.
“The Buhari presidency is fully committed to having an effective dialogue and positive engagement that will end the crisis in the oil-producing areas, and believes that these visits would further boost the confidence necessary for the attainment of peace and prosperity in the areas and the Nigerian nation in general”, the statement said.
Renewed hostilities in the oil rich Niger Delta area has led to a reduction in the quantity of crude oil coming out of the region, causing a significant reduction to government’s income.
