Biafra: What Buhari should do to address IPOB agitation – Tofa
Presidential Candidate of the National Republican Convention (NRC) in the annulled June 12, 1993, election, Bashir Tofa, has asked the President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently convene a national peace conference to tackle the agitations of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
According to him, the peace conference would articulate permanent solutions to the on-going crisis rocking the nation.
In a statement yesterday, Tofa said: “the peace conference would particularly address the agitations of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) which has led to an invasion of the South-east by the military and has led to violence.
”Let’s hope this is acceptable to the Presidency and the right and genuine people not bigots or popularity seekers will be called to think through it so that a permanent solution to the on-going crisis would be established.
”May the Almighty God help this country and bless her with a lasting peace. He gave us everything, but we have been, and remain, ungrateful to Him and utterly selfish,” he added.
Some members of IPOB, during the week, clashed repeatedly with soldiers as the military commenced preparations for exercise Egwu Eke II (Python Dance ll) which officially commenced on Friday.
Injured persons have also been recorded by both the security agencies and the pro-Biafan group leading to calls by some Nigerians for the federal government to halt the exercise.
The Army has said the exercise will continue and was meant to check criminality in the region.
