Osinbajo begins Niger Delta peace tour

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will be visiting a number of oil communities across some Niger Delta States starting on Monday.

He will visit Delta, Bayelsa and Rivers State.

His office said the visits are in “further demonstration of President Muhammadu Buhari’s readiness and determination to comprehensively address the Niger Delta situation”

At these visits, Mr. Osinbajo will lead high-level delegations of the Federal Government that will interact with leaders and representatives of the oil-producing communities in continuation of ongoing outreach efforts of the Buhari administration towards a long lasting and permanent resolution of the Niger Delta crisis, a statement signed by the vice president’s spokesperson, Laolu Akande, said.

Attacks by militant groups in the oil rich region have seen oil production significantly reduced since 2016.

Peace initiatives of the government failed to end the attacks on pipelines and oil and gas platforms.

“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 vice president’s office said.

        • Otile

  • OCCUPY Niger Delta

    People should gather and throw rotten Tomaoes, dead fish from polluted streams and rivers, and other dead land and aquatic animals and everything and anything that stinks at Mr Osinbanjo.If you must throw anything that has life at him, let it be a live serpent.

    He is a party to crime and therefore as culpable and the Bingo. After 1 yr, 8 months not even a litre of water body has been cleaned whereas, we are told that billions had been stolen by the Secretary of State just for GRASS CUTTING…and what else, Billions of Dollars released for Abuja Airport renovation. But the Maritime University in Delta state must wait. There is no money.

    Arise my people!!! Occupy the streets. Spit at the sight of this evil man. The Niger Delta Avengers and reformed MEND are our only hope. They must intensify efforts to sabotage the economy until we get our sovereign state. Secession!

    This is an excellent political move. The politicians, chiefs and elders of Niger delta have misled their subjects. They receive royalties from oil companies and subventions from federal government all to no avail. It is an opportunity for the Vice President to find out who is in charge in the region. There is so much mistrust between different communities and between the elders and the youth. I wish the vice President safe and fruitful outcome.
