The Federal Government has commenced negotiation with militants through oil companies and law-enforcement agencies.
President Muhammadu Buhari who spoke at farewell audience with the outgoing Ambassador of Germany, Mr Michael Zinner on Thursday said the move is aimed finding lasting solution to insecurity in the region.
According to Buhari, Government is studying the instruments of the Amnesty Programme inherited from the previous administration with a view to carrying out commitments made that were undelivered.
He said: “We understand their feelings. We are studying the instruments. We have to secure the environment, otherwise investment will not come. We will do our best for the country.”
On his part, the outgoing Ambassador explained that bilateral relations between Nigeria and Germany “had improved very much in the last 12 months of this administration.”
