Fayose commends Buhari for negotiating with militants

Fayose also called on the Federal Government to show commitment to the dialogue so as to win the militants’ trust.

Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state.

He also told members of the negotiation committee that the responsibility before them is important, and called on them to be sincere.

The Governor described the oil rich Niger Delta as the ‘goose that lays the golden egg,’ adding that it is not wise to sustain a military operation in the region.

Fayose, speaking through his media aide, Lere Olayinka, also said “If our daily crude oil production of 2.2 million barrels per day had been sustained, Nigeria would have been having savings in the Excess Crude Account by now.

“Crude oil bench mark is $38 per barrel while the oil is now being sold at $50 per barrel, meaning that we would have been having $12 per barrel saved in the Excess Crude Account.”
