Buhari also said the government has been negotiating to end militant attacks on oil and gas facilities in the Niger Delta, the country's oil hub, but would not be intimidated by armed groups.

Buhari also reiterated the government wanted to repair the country's four refineries to end costly fuel imports.
He said the naira exchange rate to the dollar would stabilise, after dropping to record lows due to a "
" shortage of hard currency amid low oil prices. He did not elaborate.
