Niger Delta stakeholders on Tuesday, November 1, presented 16 requests to President Muhammadu Buhari in a bid to bring lasting peace to the violence-ridden region.

According to Punch, the Niger Delta leaders demanded the allocation of oil blocks and awards of contracts to indigenes of the region.

They also want a review of the amnesty programme, de-militarisation of communities in the region and relocation of operational headquarters of oil companies to the region, among others.
