A fresh approach to resolve the Niger Delta crisis is being planned by the federal government going by the statement of the Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu.
The Minister told journalists on the sideline of the just concluded roadshow in China that the government is planning a three-stage approach to ensure permanent solution to militancy in the Niger Delta.
Dr Kachikwu said that the new approach will include militants, traditional rulers and a permanent Niger Delta Peace Committee, which is expected to bring about long term solution to agitations in the region.
Besides, he says government is planning the use of modern technology to lay oil pipelines so that vandals cannot have easy access to them in the region.
