A group, United Niger Delta Energy Development Security Strategy (UNDEDSS), has said President Muhammadu Buhari knows what to do to end the crisis in the Niger Delta region. 

According to the group, the president has allowed his administration to be beset with too many petty rivalries, which has affected his decisions, The Nation reports.


A group, United Niger Delta Energy Development Security Strategy has said President Buhari knows what to do to end the crisis in Niger Delta.




 In a statement in Warri, Delta state, by its General Secretary Tony Uranta, UNDEDSS said it was assisting the federal government to draw up a proposal that should be help to end the crisis in Niger Delta


The statement read: “President Buhari knows what exactly he needs to do to end the crisis today, if he so desires. He probably has not because he has allowed his administration to be beset with too many petty rivalries, too many individuals jockeying for putative relevance and too many party chieftains from Niger Delta who don’t have the interests of the region at heart. 


“We worked with other well-meaning Niger Delta indigenes, interfaced with patriotic members of the President’s inner cabinet and intelligence chieftains on the proposal, which has been submitted to the president.


 “Armed agitators in the creeks, the international community, including the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States of America (USA) as well as other interested Nigerians, like Nobel Laureate Professor Wole Soyinka, are privy to the proposal.


 “The proposal is hinged on four vital prerequisites: the affirmation by Mr. President that there is no change in policy on the need to begin the matriculation of students this year in the National Maritime University at Okerenkoko, Delta State; the rebirth of the Niger Delta Council, with its five relevant sub-committees of the late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua’s 2009 template; the guarantee of safe passage for delegates to any dialogue location, after all armed parties publicly agree to a 60-day Armistice to be proposed by the federal government and the attendance of foreign observers, including diplomats from the European Union (EU), UK and USA, to be invited by the government to any such dialogue.”


 UNDEDSS had last month proffer a list of solutions to the crisis plaguing the Niger Delta region. 


According to the group, the crisis in the Niger Delta could be brought to a quick resolution, the moment President Muhammadu Buhari personally chair the dialogue team and also appoint credible Special Adviser from the region. 


The group in its statement also urged the federal government to re-establish the Niger Delta Committee/Council that operated five sub-Committees with the aim of addressing arms agitation in the region. 


Militants in the Niger Delta region especially the Niger Delta Avengers have been blowing up pipelines in the region and have vowed to continue with this destruction until zero oil is produced in the region.
