Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo has revealed that the need to resolve issues affecting the Niger Delta was the reason behind his visit to the region.
After meeting with members of the Pan-Niger Delta Forum, PANDEF, in Abuja on Friday to discuss the way forward on how to create a friendly environment within the region, Osinbajo stated that the interest of the people remains a major concern for the President Muhammadu Buhari led administration and there was a need for them to exercise patience.
“Personally, I believe the issues of the Niger Delta must be addressed. When I undertook the visit to the Niger Delta region, my sole intention for participating in this process is that we need forthrightness and a hands-on approach. There is no week that has passed that I‘ve not held one meeting or the other on the Niger Delta issue. I’ve spent quality time looking at how we can implement this (new vision).
It can’t be done overnight. We are also looking at the integrity of the process so we can meet our targets. We are not out of line. Everything is on course the way we set it out. We have got to do it right.”
