BUSINESS POLITICS
Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose has once again called on the federal government to handle the agitation of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) with caution and allow leaders of the Southeast region to apply political solutions as against the use of force, which has created tension in Abia State and the entire Southeast since the military embarked on its Operation Python Dance II.
Special Assistant to the governor on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, said in a statement on Saturday, that Governor Fayose also called the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu and his followers to desist from any act capable of threatening the peaceful co-existence of Nigerians and allow dialogue to resolve their agitations.
The governor said the federal government should be reminded of how late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua handled the Niger-Delta militancy with dialogue and consultations, adding that the same approach should be used to address IPOB agitations and those of others rather than military option.
The governor said; “For whatever reasons, the federal government should avoid being seen as becoming trigger happy because in every union, there will always be agitations and leaders must listen to such
