President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that his administration will rebuild Nigeria, including the Niger Delta region, and he is asking for patience and understanding from Nigerians.
Receiving a delegation of Niger Delta dialogue and contact group, led by Alfred Diette-Spiff, the Amanyanabo of Twon Brass, Bayelsa state, at state house yesterday, Buhari pledged that under his watch, Nigeria would witness judicious utilisation of resources.
“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.”
“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, “he said.
