President Muhammadu Buhari says his administration would rebuild Nigeria, including the Niger Delta region, and therefore solicits patience and understanding from the citizenry.
Receiving a delegation of Niger Delta Dialogue and Contact Group, led by His Royal Highness, King Alfred Diette-Spiff, the Amanyanabo of Twon Brass, Bayelsa State, at State House, Abuja on Thursday, President Buhari pledged that under his watch Nigeria will witness judicious utilization of resources.
The President said the gazette on the Niger Delta amnesty programme by the Umaru Yar’Adua’s administration is being studied; with a view to determining what had been fulfilled, promising that whatever is left would equally be addressed.
He sympathized with investors who borrowed lots of money to invest in the Niger Delta region and have not recouped their investments due to insecurity.
President Buhari used the occasion of his audience with the Group to reiterate his appeal to those who perpetuate violence, to embrace peace and give government a chance.
The leader of the Group, King Alfred Diette-Spiff, said the group was made of peace builders, dedicated to peace and stability in the region.
