The Special Adviser to the President on Niger-Delta matters and Coordinator of the Amnesty programme, Retired Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh, disclosed that the Federal Government and ex-militants have resolved to end the ongoing pipeline vandalism in the Niger Delta region.

Boroh made this disclosure at the end of a meeting he convened in Benin on Saturday night. He told newsmen that the pipeline vandalism in the Niger-Delta was reducing the economic fortune of the country and inflicting pains on Nigerians. ‎

According to VANGUARD, Boroh urged the agitators to dialogue with the relevant authorities over their grievances and shun destruction of oil installations.‎ He assured that plans were in the pipeline to provide the ex-militants with welfare and a housing scheme in addition to the existing programme and projects.‎

In his words; “The common factor is security challenges we are facing in our areas, in our region that is affecting the economy of the country.

Personally it makes me feel bad that we don’t know how to solve our problem.‎ To you my comrades, it is our responsibility to make sure that insecurity in our environment is well sorted out. Please let us do everything we can to make sure that doesn’t occur again.”‎

Boroh, who was optimistic about the success of the meeting, said: “We have all resolved that we will put our heads and hands and all in all together to prevent the re-occurrence of this type of thing.”‎ He assured oil firms in the country that the Federal Government is dedicated to end the problems associated with bombing. “Collectively we (Federal Government and ex-militants) have agreed to work as a team to prevent re-occurrence".

Recall that at about 2:15am on Saturday the Niger Delta Avengers blew up Nembe 1, 2 and 3 Brass to Bonny Trunk Line belonging to Agip and Shell.
