Nigeria’s president Mohammadu Buhari has pleaded with the Niger Delta Militants to take it easy with the destruction of the pipelines which is a strong source of National income for the country.
The president was surprised with the high level of technology deployed by the militants making a plea to them to take it easy as the government strives to make things better.While using the name of God to plead with the militants, Buhari also called on Nigerians especially friends and family of the militants to plead with them.
“I honestly don’t know how many factions of the militants there are in the Niger Delta compared to the north east where you have only the Boko Haram.The technology being deployed by the militants to destroy oil installations is high tech, the way they can go on high sea and international waters and target oil installations is a national problem. It is affecting development.”
“No insurance company will want to insure installations that will end up being blown up and no banks will want to finance such installations.Those of you who have friends among the leadership or even the militants themselves should plead with them in the name of God Almighty to take it easy.
“We need to stablise to create employment, we need to stabilise the economy, I agonise over these things. We are in a very difficult time, so we have to organise ourselves. Anybody that says he has any other country than Nigeria should go out and see.”
