Senator Sani on his social media, Friday morning said: “Federal Government talks with the militants in the Niger Delta is a step in the right direction to secure end to the attacks on oil infrastructure in the region; But a deeper and broader talks about the region is what is also needed to address the seeds and the sources of the problem”.
President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday in Abuja confirmed that his administration is talking to Niger Delta militants through oil companies and law-enforcement agencies to find a lasting solution to insecurity in the region.
He said this while receiving Mr. Michael Zinner, the outgoing Ambassador of Germany to Nigeria at the State House.
President Buhari said that 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,” the President said.
“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 affirmed.
