To give fresh confidence to the efforts of the federal government in finding a lasting solution to the Niger Delta vandalism, all is set for a comprehensive tour of Niger Delta creeks and major communities by the Vice president, Prof. Osinbajo to get first hand details of situations in the areas.

This will be possible today if there is no last minute change of plan due to a possible new security report.

The tour is expected to begin today from Delta State whereas at a later date, Bayelsa and Rivers States will follow.

Senior Special Assistant on Media & Publicity, Laolu Akande explained in a statement that “At these visits, 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”.

According to him, “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”.
