President Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday, reaffirmed his intention to rebuild Nigeria, including the volatile Niger Delta region that have been marked by several acts of violence and instability.
Speaking at the reception of delegates of Niger Delta Dialogue led by the Amanyanabo of Twon Brass, Bayelsa state, Alfred Diette-Spiff, at the state house, Abuja, the President vowed that Nigeria would utilise her resources appropriately.
He noted that his administration was studying the gazette on Niger Delta amnesty programme used by the former administration of Umaru Yar’Adua.
“We intend to rebuild this country, so that our children and grandchildren will have a good place they can call their own.
A lot of damage has been done, so I want you to tell the people to be patient,” he said.
“When you get together with other leaders, please pacify the people. We will utilise the resources of Nigeria with integrity and rebuild the country.”
Speaking on the Niger Delta amnesty, the President said,
“I want to get as much intelligence as possible on the situation in the Niger Delta.
I have encouraged law enforcement agencies to contact leaders like you in order to have enough information to deal with the issues once and for all.”
Buhari sympathised with investors who had borrowed money to invest in the Niger Delta region and have been unable to make profits from their investment due to militancy.
He further charged the group to appeal to the militants to embrace peace and and allow government do its work.
