‘Niger Delta Militants Are Not Ready To Talk’ – Buhari
The Federal Government has revealed that the Niger Delta militant groups have not reciprocated the government’s call towards finding peaceful solution to the crisis in the oil-producing areas of Nigeria.
According to the statement, “Despite the government’s demonstration of goodwill by bringing stakeholders to the round table, militant groups have continued to blow up national economic assets.”
Shehu said the continued destruction of oil installations had frustrated peace talks.
He also appealed to Niger Delta leaders to facilitate the stoppage of violence and economic sabotage in the area.
“We must keep national interest above all else and give priority to eschewing violence and destruction,” he said.
