Dialogue with militants: You are ridiculing us, IYC tells Buhari



The Ijaw Youth Council (IYC), has described as ridiculous the Federal Government claim of dialogue with Niger Delta militants.

In a statement by its spokesperson, Mr. Eric Omare, IYC said, “It is highly ridiculous and laughable for President Muhammadu Buhari to say that his government is negotiating with Niger Delta militants through oil companies and law enforcement agencies during the farewell audience with Mr. Michael Zinner, the outgoing Ambassador to Germany on Thursday.

“The Ijaw Youth Council worldwide says that President Buhari and the Federal Government of Nigeria should stop deceiving Nigerians and the international community about talks with Niger Delta militants on how to stop attacks on oil facilities in the Niger Delta region.”
