WorldStage Newsonline-- Nigeria’s Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo has expressed confidence that the Muhamadu Buhari administration is making progress to resolve the crisis in the Niger Delta.

In media chat on Tuesday after town-hall meeting in Ilaje LGA, Ondo State, the last of the oil producing communities that he had been visiting in the last few months, the VP said the demands by the people were being implemented.

“Every one of them is being implemented and they are being implemented incrementally.  For example we said we were going to open the Maritime University and we are opening in October,” he said.

“We have said we are going to do modular refineries; we have released the guidelines and licenses are being issued. We are engaging with the communities, we are engaging with the state governments.

 “We have talked about getting power to Ilaje Local Government, the contract has been awarded, N600 million has been paid. This is a project that has been abandoned for over 10 years but we are doing it and ensuring that power comes to this Local Government Area and to this community.

 “So, everything is being done, it is incremental but we are taking them step by step. The Ogoni clean up as you know, has already started.”
