On Wednesday the 2019 presidential candidate of the Young Progressive Party (YPP), Prof. Kingsley Moghalu, has urged the Federal Government to dialogue with secessionists like Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)and Sunday Adeyemo also known as Sunday Igboho.

The former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) said such discussion would address the root causes of their agitations and help douse tensions in Nigeria.

Featuring on Channels Television’s breakfast show, Sunrise Daily, Moghalu 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.

“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.

“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?”

Recall that a chieftain of the Igbo apex socio-political organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chuks Ibegbu had urged President Muhammadu Buhari to engage Kanu and other agitators in a roundtable discussion.
