The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians, he has been in touch with Niger Delta militants through oil companies and law enforcement agencies so as to find a lasting solution to the insecurity challenge faced in the oil-rich region. He made this known at a farewell audience with Michael Zinner, who is the outgoing Ambassador of Germany to Nigeria at the State House in Abuja today, Thursday, July 21.
“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,” the President said.
Buhari used the opportunity to thank the German government for its continuing support to Nigeria in our battle against insecurity and the on-going rehabilitation and resettlement of displaced citizens in areas faced with violence in the North-East.
