The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, has pledged to negotiate with all agitators in the Southeast amid Biafra agitation led by Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB.
Tinubu said the negotiation with all agitators would ensure peace in the Southeast if elected president in 2023.
He made the pledge during Thursday’s APC presidential and governorship campaign rally in Ebonyi State.
Tinubu insisted that negotiation was the best way for people to get their demands and complaints rather than resorting to violence.
He also promised to invest in education if elected president.
“Education is the greatest weapon against poverty. We are going to get our children’s education. We will reform the education sector.
“We want peace l, we will talk to all agitators. You can’t get your wishes by conflict but by sitting round the table to complain,” he said.
Lately, Kanu has been at the forefront of agitating for the actualization of Biafra.
Despite being locked up, IPOB has continued the pursuit of actualizing Biafra.
