Former Head of State, Yakubu Gowon, has urged the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPoB), Nnamdi Kanu, to dialogue with the Federal Government.
Speaking at a lecture in Plateau State, Gowon advised the IPoB leader to engage the government in talks to address issues affecting the South East, and stop seeking secession.
“My young friend, Nnamdi Kanu, was not born during the civil war, which was declared ‘no victor, no vanquished.’
“It is sad to recall what happened at that time, the best way to seek redress is through dialogue.
“Kanu should pursue a healthy conversation on issues he is not comfortable with as it affects his people; this is the only way we can collaborate effectively and have things resolved amicably,” he said.
