The Federal Government has revealed that the Niger Delta militant
groups have not reciprocated the government’s call towards finding
peaceful solution to the crisis in the oil-producing areas of Nigeria.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity,
Garba Shehu was quoted in a statement on Wednesday, November 16 as
making the observation in an interview he granted to a Kano-based radio
station, Express Radio.

According to the statement, “Despite the government’s demonstration
of goodwill by bringing stakeholders to the round table, militant groups
have continued to blow up national economic assets.”

Shehu said the continued destruction of oil installations had frustrated peace talks.

He also appealed to Niger Delta leaders to facilitate the stoppage of violence and economic sabotage in the area.

“We must keep national interest above all else and give priority to eschewing violence and destruction,” he said.
