Why Buhari should dialogue with pro-Biafra agitators, by Nwodo
Former Enugu state governor Dr Okwesilieze Nwodo in a chat with The Guardian at the weekend expressed the optimism that President Muhammadu Buhari would dialogue with pro-Biafra protesters.
The ex governor, who spoke after he was conferred with an honorary Doctor of Science degree by the Michael Okpara University of Agriculture Umudike, Abia State during the school’s seventh convocation ceremony, noted that with the tremendous goodwill president Buhari garnered through massive votes at the polls, he was optimistic that he would fulfill his electoral pledges to the people.
He, however, asked Nigerians to exercise patience with him as formulation and execution of policies by government takes time to yield results, especially during this era of dwindling revenue.
On what he thinks of the pro-Biafra protests/agitations and how to address them, he said: “The agitators have a grievance, but my advice to them is not to be violent. My advice to the Federal Government is for it to listen to their grievances and explore dialogue with them.
