The Special Adviser to the Bayelsa State Governor on Political Matters, High Chief Collins Cocodia, has urged the Nigerian government to engage the regions agitating for secession in a round table discussion as it remains the only means of suppressing the calls.
Chief Cocodia also stressed that the arrests would only trigger more agitations from the people, against the idea that it might silence any possible intention of separation nursed by individuals, groups or the regions.
He made the call on a live program, on Glory FM 97.1 in Yenagoa, the state capital, on Thursday, while reacting to the arrest of Nnamdi Kanu, and Sunday Igboho recently, by the Federal Government.
According to him, agitations and quests to secede from the country are legitimate when reasons given are cogent, however, if the government is totally against it, then the best way to address it is to meet with the leaders of the aggrieved groups for dialogue.
“Looking at the situation in the country, are there reasons for agitations, the answer is clearly Yes. Is the federal government working towards reducing the need for agitations, the answer is No. Is the federal character principle adhered to, the answer is No. Are Nigerians more united than before, the answer is No, are farmers comfortable working on their farmers? The answer is No. Now, that is the situation we find ourselves in”
