Chief Emmanuel Inwuayanwu, member of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Tuesday, November 21, called on the federal government to dialogue with the Boko Haram insurgents.
He said this will be a way of addressing the crisis in the northeast.
Inwuayanwu said this when the Muslim Students Association of Nigeria (MSAN) presented him with an award as peace ambassador.
He insisted the Boko Haram are Nigerians who should be brought to the roundtable to discuss the way out.
Going further, he said Boko Haram has killed more Muslims than Christians, so it is not about religion. These people are just enemies of Nigeria.
“I want to congratulate President Muhammadu Buhari for the success his government has recorded against the insurgency in the country. But at this point, the federal government should find out why these people are really fighting because they are Nigerians.
“So, the government should dialogue with them because the dialogue is a way of addressing the problem. These people are Nigerians so get them and talk to them with a view to changing their mindset because you can’t chase them away from Nigeria.”
The PDP chieftain also expressed his support for the Buhari anti-corruption war. He said even though successive administrations fought corruption “but President Buhari made it a major issue because I have seen monumental fraud exposed by this government.
“So, what Buhari needs is support from those working with him, remember that one man cannot run a government,” Nwayanwu stated.
