25 June 2016, Warri – Militant group, Niger Delta Avengers, on Saturday, asked President Muhammadu Buhari to visit the Niger Delta region to see for himself what the people are passing through despite the huge revenue from the region.
In a statement signed by the spokesman of the militant group, Moduch Agbinibo, lamented the under development of the region.
The statement pointed out that President Buhari needs to visit some of the host communities of some oil multinational firms to have a firsthand judgment of what the people of the region have been subjected to for years.
According to the group, “The Nigeria President Buhari should visit Ugborodo, host to Chevron crude oil Export terminal/EGTL gas plant, Ogulagha, host to Shell Forcados Crude Oil Export terminal/tank farm, Bonny Island, host to Shell Bonny Crude Oil Export terminal/NLNG gas terminal, Brass host to Agip/ENI export terminal and Ibeno, host to ExxonMobil Qua Iboe crude export terminal.
“These are just the export terminals not talking about the numerous oil and gas flow stations and the oil Wells that crisscrossed the length and breadth of the Niger Delta.”
“Mr President come and see for yourself what the host communities are going through in the hands of Nigeria government and the multinationals,” the statement further added.
