Breaking News: Buhari’s Trip To Ogoni Cancelled

By Ikenga Chronicles June 2, 2016

The much publicized trip of Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari to Ogoniland, in the oil-rich Niger Delta region of Nigeria has been cancelled. If the president had gone to Ogoni, it would have been his first trip to the Niger Delta region since he became president. This much publicized trip has however been cancelled due to “assassination threats on the president”.

The cancellation of the trip comes at the back of the Federal Government’s decision to deploy war ships and jet fighters to the Delta creeks, in a move reminiscent of a declaration of war on the inhabitants of that area.

Few Niger Deltans who spoke to Ikenga Chronicles opined that the cancellation goes to show that the president does not care about the region, and perceive the so called flag off of the clean-up as a charade meant to score political points, while the actual clean-up will not be effected.

It will be recalled that there is no provision in the 2016 budget, for the clean-up.
