I'm here to make peace - Osinbajo pleads in Uyo

Share it:




In continuation of his consultation with constituents, Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, arrived Uyo, the Akwa Ibom state capital, for a town hall meeting with representatives of oil producing communities and other stakeholders.

Prior to the Akwa Ibom visit, Osinbajo had visited Rivers, Bayelsa, Delta, Abia and Imo states and consulted with the people in a strategic move to galvanise support for government and end the perennial loggerhead between government and some dissenting groups whose actions had impacted negatively on oil production and the nation’s revenue base.

In tasking himself with finding a solution to the nagging problems, Osinbajo said he came as an angel of peace. He told the people that “my particular reason for coming is that we are at the moment consulting with oil producing states of Nigeria. There is a role for the Federal Government to play to ensure justice and equity to oil producing states. We must ensure that oil communities benefit from the oil.”
