‘Those Of You Who Have Friends Among The Militants Should Help Me Beg Them’, Buhari Tells APC Leaders

 
Buhari-696x509President Muhammadu Buhari has asked leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to help him plead with rampaging militants in the oil-rich Niger Delta.
Buhari was speaking on Friday, at the breaking of Ramadan fast with the APC leadership at the presidential villa in Abuja.
Lamenting the effect of attacks on oil installations, the president said the country does not need such a distraction at this point in time.
He said the militants were in possession of sophisticated equipment, adding that unlike the Boko Haram sect which has one faction, the militants are in so many groups, suggesting that government has been having challenges relating with them.
“I honestly don’t know how many factions the militants are in the Niger Delta compared to the north-east where you have the Boko Haram,” he said.
“The technology being deployed by the militants to destroy oil installations is high-tech, the way they can go on high sea and international waters and target oil installations is a national problem. It is affecting development.
“No insurance company will want to insure installations that will end up being blown up and no banks will want to finance such installations.
“Those of you who have friends among the leadership or even the militants themselves should plead with them in the name of God ‎Almighty to take it easy.
“We are in a very difficult time, so we have to organise ourselves. Anybody that says he has any other country than Nigeria should go out and see.”
