Nigeria’s Buhari cancels visit to restive, oil-producing Niger Delta

ABUJA – Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has cancelled at the last minute a visit planned for Thursday to the oil-producing Niger Delta that has been rocked by a spate of militant attacks. Vice President Yemi Osinbajo visited the restive region in Buhari’s place to launch a cleanup programme in an area badly hit by oil spills, and said the government was working with community leaders to end militant attacks on oil installations. No reason has been given for Buhari’s cancellation.
