What I’ld Do To Niger Delta Region If I Was President – Atiku


A former vice-president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar on Tuesday revealed what he would do to the Niger Delta region if he was the President.

Atiku while speaking at the launch of a book titled “We Are All Biafrans” written by Chido Onumah in Abuja said:

“I think the Niger Delta should be handled with a stick and carrot approach. In 2007, before I ran for president, I met with various stakeholders on the Niger Delta issue and they came up with a policy.”

He continued: “Part of the recommendations was that the ministry be moved to the Niger Delta and not Abuja. We have had administrations that did not do their homework on the Niger Delta.

“If I had won, I would have sold 10 per cent shares in the NNPC; that will give me 20 billion dollars which would build infrastructure for the Niger delta but we will always end up with accidental leadership.

“Bring peace and development to the Niger Delta then they will stop blowing up pipelines. Then, we will get gas and then power can be stable but until then, we will not get it.”
