President Muhammadu Buhari has once again given the militant groups in the Niger Delta region, olive branch to embrace dialogue or face the music.
The President said this yesterday when he hosted the United States Secretary of State, John Kerry in State House, Abuja.

Recall that the President had in the past said the militants would be treated like Boko Haram.
He said: “We will insist on the standards we’re establishing. We are laying down administrative and financial instructions in the public service that must be obeyed. Any breach will no longer be acceptable.
“We will retrain our staff, so that they understand the new orientation. And those who run foul of these rules will be prosecuted, no matter who is involved. But we will be fair, just and act according to the rule of law.
Anyone perceived corrupt is innocent till we can prove it. We will work very hard to establish documentation for successful prosecution, and those in positions of trust will sit up,” he said.
