Ex-President Olusegun O basajo has advised President Muhammadu Buhari to meet with the Indigenous People of Biafra’s )IPOB)leader, Nnamdi Kanu before the ongoing crises gets out of hand.
While talking with Newsweek, Obasanjo, who when he was President met with te Niger Delta militant leaders in 2006 to stop attacks on oil installations, said,’’I don’t see anything wrong in that(Buhari meeting with Kanu). ‘’ I would not object to that; if anything I would encourage it.
‘’I would want to meet Kanu myself and talk to people like him, people of his age, and ask : ‘’What are your worries? ‘’ Not only from the South-East but from all parts of the country’’
Obasanjo said the Army’s ‘heavy boot’ response to pro-Biafra sentiment is not the solution’’ and that the secession bid by IPOB is not the way forward either..
