Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo will today represent President Muhammadu Buhari in the Niger Delta to flag off the clean up of Ogoniland.

 

President Muhammadu Buhari had  planned  to visit Ogoniland today but government sources have confirmed that he will no longer attend. However no reason was given for the sudden change although this is not the first time the President has cancelled his planned trip.

 

The  oil-producing Niger Delta,  has been hit by a wave of militant attacks, especially the recent upsurge of attacks on critical oil facilities by the new militant group called Niger Delta Avengers.
