Vice President YEMI OSINBAJO is unhappy that some youths in the Niger Delta have continued to damage pipelines, oil installations and facilities meant to help the people of the region.
Speaking while receiving a delegation of the Urhobo Leaders of Thought at the Presidential Villa, Professor OSINBAJO lamented that “so much damage is being done noting that governments will come and go, but these damages will ultimately destroy people’s livelihoods, aspirations and their future.
He added and I quote, “Nobody else anywhere in the world will destroy the facilities meant to help them, there is no benefit whatsoever from the destruction,” end of quote.
While maintaining that the BUHARI administration would continue its outreach to leaders and groups in the Niger Delta in seeking peaceful solution to the crisis, Vice President OSINBAJO called for understanding, especially on the part of the leaders of the region stressing that destruction and damage does not lead to anything good.
Welcoming the delegation from the Urhobo Leaders of Thought led by its President, Chief TUESDAY ONOGE and the APC’s Gubernatorial Candidate in the 2015 elections, Olorogun ORTEGA EMERHOR, Professor OSINBAJO commended the leadership and understanding of the Urhobo Leaders of Thought.
Earlier in his comments, Chief ONOGE lamented that if the money sent to the Niger Delta in the last sixteen years were judiciously spent, the people of the region would have benefited.
