Rebuilding Niger Delta is my Priority – Buhari Pleads with Amanyanabo

by on July 1, 2016
 

President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to use the country’s resources judiciously to de­velop the nation and rebuild the volatile Niger Delta re­gion, based on the policies initiated by the late Presi­dent Umaru Musa Yar’Adua.
Buhari spoke on Thurs­day when a delegation of Ni­ger Delta Dialogue and Con­tact Group, led by His Royal Highness, King Alfred Di­ette-Spiff, the Amanyanabo of Twon Brass, Bayelsa State, visited him at the Presiden­tial Villa, Abuja.
The President therefore solicited the patience and understanding of Nigerians to achieve the goal.
His words: “We intend to rebuild this country so that our children and grandchil­dren will have a good place they can call their own. A lot of damage has been done, so I want you to tell the people to be patient.
“When you get together with other leaders, please pacify the people. We will utilise the resources of Ni­geria with integrity and rebuild the country”.
The President said the ga­zette on the Niger Delta Am­nesty Programme issued by the Yar’Adua administra­tion was being studied with a view to determining what had been achieved and prom­ised that whatever was un­done would be addressed.
Buhari continued: “I want to get as much intelligence as possible on the situation in the Niger Delta. I have en­couraged law enforcement agencies to contact lead­ers like you in order to have enough information to deal with the issues once and for all.”
The President sympa­thised with investors who borrowed lots of money to invest in the Niger Delta re­gion and have not recouped their investments due to in­security in the area.
He reiterated his appeal to those who perpetrate vio­lence to embrace peace and give his administration a chance.
In his remarks, Diette-Spiff said the group was made up of eminent Nigerians who are dedicated to peace and stability in the region.
