Niger Delta elites are behind the ongoing crisis in the Niger Delta, Mr. Usani Usani Uguru, minister for Niger Delta has alleged.
“The crisis is traceable to the elite from the region and other sections of the country,” he said in a recent interview with newsmen. “They are doing that for various reasons which are not connected to the Niger Delta improvement.”
He however said hands are on deck to take care of the situation.
“I am bold to let you know that some elite in the country want to take advantage of this to get recognition; that is why the issue of militancy has continued. The approaches we are adopting to end the crisis are strategic.
He however refused to give details on what’s being done to arrest the situation.
