“The military has partnered Delta State government for the resultant peaceful oil production environment with improved economic intake. There is a need for greater security collaboration as an achievement of our goals is dependent on security, which is why we set up several institutional structures, including Advocacy Committee Against Vandalism of Oil and Gas Facilities. Our partnership with the Presidential Initiative on Niger Delta resulted in increased oil production.

Your Excellency, we have so much in common because as one who studied peace and conflict resolution at the University of Ibadan, you are given to the pursuit of peace. I assure you, Your Excellency, that the Nigerian Army will work within the Constitution to provide the needed security in the country. The support of the Delta State Government, which has been unconditional, is a morale booster,” Buratai said.
