Chief Bode George has advised the government of President Muhammadu Buhari to handle pro-Biafran agitators with caution. While warning that Nigeria cannot survive another civil war, the politician said the government must not use force in dealing with the situation.
Chief Bode George also begged the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to stop their protests. He further added that secession was not the answer to the problems of Nigeria, urging Igbo leaders and the group to hold talks with the government.
“I want to plead with the Biafran protesters to be patient and I urge them to tread softly. No nation goes to civil war twice and survives. We are still meandering to build nationhood”.
“Let us build this nation together. We must ensure that everyone has a sense of belonging. Sharing of resources and appointments should not be a winner-takes-all affair. Let us debate and deliberate over our affairs. Dismembering the system through protests and agitations is not the solution,” said Chief Bode George
