The United States of America (USA) has called on the Federal Government to dialogue with militants in the Niger Delta
region.
This is coming after the British government’s call on the government to call the Niger Delta Avengers to the talking table.
The US mission in Nigeria also said it supports any step that will lead to resolution of the crisis in the oil rich region.
A statement issued by the US embassy in Abuja on Tuesday, June 7, 2016, said
“We encourage all parties to resolve their disputes through peaceful means and emphasise that human rights of all Nigerians must be protected.
“We continue to call on all Nigerians to persevere in efforts to achieve common goals: to end violence and curb the activities of criminal elements; to establish conditions and mechanisms for profound, positive, and lasting changes in the region; and to provide economic opportunity and needed services for residents of the Niger Delta.”
The Niger Delta Avengers have attacked offshore infrastructure belonging to oil majors » Shell, ENI and Chevron, vowing to reduce output to zero in what is typically Africa’s largest oil exporter.
