The President also noted that efforts were on course in the Niger Delta to clean up polluted lands, restore hopes of the youth in the region and re-establish livelihoods, as well as strengthen their capacity to guarantee for themselves and for the country a brighter future.

He also said his administration had put machinery in place to end the incessant herdsmen and farmers clashes across the country.

He promised to deal decisively with perpetrators of violence.

He urged stakeholders to resist the temptation of viewing the conflict as either religious or ethnic based.
