Niger Delta Militancy: Osinbajo to visit Delta, Bayelsa, Rivers

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will from Monday visit some Niger State States as part of efforts to address the grievances in the region, which have led to vandalism of oil installations and dwindling federal government revenue.

The Vice-President will during the tour interact with a number of oil-producing communities. After Delta State, dates will be announced for his tour of Bayelsa and Rivers States.

The statement disclosed that "the Vice President will lead high-level delegations of the Federal Government that will interact with leaders and representatives of the oil-producing communities in continuation of ongoing outreach efforts of the Buhari administration towards a long lasting and permanent resolution of the Niger Delta crisis.

"The Buhari presidency is fully committed to having an effective dialogue and positive engagement that will end the crisis in the oil-producing areas, and believes that these visits would further boost the confidence necessary for the attainment of peace and prosperity in the areas and the Nigerian nation in general."
