PostSubject: Breaking: Buhari cancels visit to Ogoni land- Government Source   2016-06-02, 13:04

President Muhammadu Buhari has canceled at the last minute a
visit planned for Thursday to the oil-producing Niger Delta, which
has been hit by a wave of militant attacks, a government source
said.
Vice President Yemi
Osinbajo will instead visit
the restive southern region
to launch a cleanup
program of the Ogoniland,
an area badly hit by oil
spills, the source said,
without giving a reason for
Buhari's cancellation,
reports Reuters.
Buhari had already skipped
a visit to the commercial
capital Lagos in the south
last month at the last
minute.
Posters with his picture had
been already hung up to
welcome the president
before his spokesman cited "scheduling" difficulties.
It would have been the first visit of the former military ruler to the
Delta since taking office in May last year. Critics have accused
Buhari, a Muslim from the north, of ignoring the predominately
Christian south.
The southern Delta swamps have been hit by a series of militant
attacks on oil and gas pipelines which have brought Nigeria's oil
output to a 20-year low.
Hours after the announcement of Buhari's visit to the swamps on
Tuesday the Niger Delta Avengers militant group, which has
claimed several attacks on Chevron and Royal Dutch Shell
facilities, issued a warning to oil firms that their "facilities and
personnel will bear the brunt of our fury".
The Avengers have accused Buhari of ignoring local problems.
Buhari said on Sunday the government would hold talks with
leaders in Nigeria's main oil-producing region to address their
grievances, in a bid to stop a surge in pipeline attacks.
Residents in the swamp areas have for years complained about oil
industry pollution and about economic marginalization by the
government.
Local officials and Western allies such as Britain have told Buhari
that moving army reinforcements to the Delta region would not be
enough to stop the attacks and that the population's grievances
should be dealt with.

I think the reality is that people do not understand why these militants are doing what they're doing so they think they just want to assassinate a government official.
If you understand that these miscreants are a response to the anti-corruption war spearheaded by the President and that they're sponsored by those already being prosecuted and those expecting their turn at EFCC custody and subsequently the court, it will become clear why the President chose not to go and why the Vice President making the trip is not a show of lack of concern for his safety. It is the President that is the crux of the threat and it was frustrating wisdom that he saw beyond his ego and chose not to go because if he went and there was as much as the sound of a knock out, or even a careless throw off a stone, the reaction of the army may not have been pretty.
I prefer we clean oil spill from Ogoni not a mixture of spilled oil and human blood.
