Acting president, Yemi Osinbajo is currently meeting with Niger Delta leaders in Bayelsa state.
The meeting seeks to broker peace with militants whose attacks have hammered the country’s crude production.
A peace deal could help revive production, with the government aiming to produce about 2.2 million barrels of oil per day this year.
A senior official said Friday’s visit would continue the vice president’s discussions in Delta state in January, and address Niger Delta stakeholders including the governor, traditional rulers, community leaders and representatives of disaffected youth groups.
The first time Professor Osinbajo held a similar meeting was at Gbaramatu Kingdom in Delta State where he told the people that the Federal Government feels the pain of the Niger Delta Region.
