Nigeria Must Offer Work To Illegal Refiners To Reach Peace

Reuters

PORT HARCOURT, Nigeria, Feb 14 (Reuters) - Nigeria needs to offer work for illegal refiners in the Niger Delta to help achieve peace there, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo said on Tuesday.

"Our approach to that is that we must engage them (illegal refiners) by establishing modular refineries so that they can participate in legal refineries," he said during a visit to Rivers state, part of the Delta region.

"We have recognised that young men must be properly engaged," he said.
