President MUHAMMADU BUHARI has said his administration was in talks with Niger Delta militants through oil companies and law-enforcement agencies to find a lasting solution to insecurity in the region.
Speaking at a farewell audience with the outgoing Ambassador of Germany to Nigeria, MICHAEL ZINNER, at the State House, President BUHARI said the government was studying the instruments of the Amnesty Programme inherited from the previous administration with a view to carrying out commitments made that were undelivered.
The president used the opportunity to thank the government of Germany for its continuing support to Nigeria in the efforts to tackle insecurity and the on-going rehabilitation and resettlement of displaced citizens in crisis areas in the North-Eastern parts of the country.
President BUHARI also thanked Nigeria’s neighbours for their firm and unflinching support in the war against terror.
The outgoing German Ambassador in his speech noted that bilateral relations between Nigeria and Germany had improved very much in the last 12 months of this administration.
