President Buhari says his administration is talking to Niger Delta militants in order to end the constant attacks on the country’s oil installations which is affecting Nigeria’s oil production.
Speaking at a farewell audience with Michael Zinner, the outgoing Ambassador of Germany to Nigeria at the State House Abuja yesterday, President Buhari said that his administration through oil companies and law-enforcement agencies is finding a lasting solution to insecurity in the region.
He further said that his government is studying the instruments of the Amnesty Programme inherited from the previous administration with a view to carrying out commitments made that were undelivered.
“We understand their feelings. We are studying the instruments. We have to secure the environment, otherwise investment will not come. We will do our best for the country,” he said.
The President used the opportunity to thank the government of Germany for its continuing support to Nigeria in the efforts to tackle insecurity and the on-going rehabilitation and resettlement of displaced citizens in crisis areas in the North-Eastern parts of the country.
