President Muhammadu Buhari said on Friday that Nigeria’s resources will be utilised for the benefit of all citizens, with a strong focus on infrastructure.
“We will not abuse the trust. What belongs to Nigeria stays in Nigeria and will be utilised by Nigerians.’’
Mr President stated this when a delegation of Ogoni leaders from the Supreme Council of Ogoni Traditional Rulers and elected leaders of MOSOP visited him at the State House, Abuja.
He said the challenge of infrastructure in Ogoni-land would have been long resolved with more focus and commitment to improving the lives of the people, instead of the award and re-awarding of contracts without implementation.
He, however, urged the leaders to prevail on their youths and sensitize their communities more on the benefits of the clean-up process, especially with the involvement of the international community.
“Certainly I am aware of the challenges in Ogoni-land. But I want to appeal to you as institutionalized leaders to speak more to the youths. With patience, we will prevail together in restoring the environment, especially with involvement of the international community.’’
