Kingsley Moghalu a former presidential candidate, while speaking on Channels TV has advised the Buhari led government to dialogue with Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu.
NEWS MAIL NG reports that Kingsley Moghalu said he believes that addressing the root causes will help in calming the tension in the country.
Kingsley Moghalu, a former Deputy Central Bank Governor said :
“I think that the government should be able to invite, whether it is IPOB or Sunday Igboho, all the secessionists; invite them to the table.”
He admitted that it is wrong to tag them as terrorist without even hearing them out.
“They are essentially political agitators. You can call them terrorists. That is your own prerogative but we know what terrorism means in reality. Boko Haram are terrorists. We know that.
“When people begin political agitations and we very easily throw terrorism at them just because they are mouthing off and speaking in a language that nobody likes or insulting their fellow citizens. That is their way of handling this type of thing.
“Can we address the agitations? Don’t be afraid to address the core reasons behind the agitation because they are crying out for justice. They feel marginalised. What is wrong with addressing those issues?”
