Fayose speaks on Osinbajo, Nnamdi Kanu, quit notice to Igbos

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, has hailed Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, for his recent intervention in response to the quit notice to Igbos by Arewa youths.
He condemned the ultimatum and urged government to be on its toes to avoid being caught unawares.
Fayose also called for dialogue with the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu to douse the growing ethnic-based tensions in the country.
“As much as secession is not an option, the handlers of our democracy must be equitable, fair and just to everyone”, he said in a chat with newsmen yesterday.
“The Igbo have continued to suffer because of the perceived role of Emeka Ojukwu. If we say past governments didn’t do well what has the present government done differently?
“I agree that secession is not desirable but there must be justice and equity. When people are being killed or vilified, you must expect a reaction. No region should begin to use power to oppress another. If Nigeria is truly one, it will not get to a stage that one region will openly call on another to leave its land.
“The Acting President Yemi Osinbajo is doing his best but that is not enough. We must remember that those who make positive change impossible make violent change inevitable. A situation where a section will be suffering forever because of their role in the civil war is not fair.
“The federal government must purge itself of some responsibilities because the actual development is at grassroots. The states and the local governments are nodal points of developments.
