Senator Theodore Orji has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to avoid trouble and hold dialogue with the leadership of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
“If there are dissenting voices, the president should call them and discuss with them. He should find out the cause of their agitation and work out ways to address their grievances,” the senator representing Abia Central said on Sunday ahead of his 70th birthday celebration today.
“He should see how he can bring them in and fully integrate them into the system. That is what will solve the problem of the country. Call the dissident voices to a conference.
“There is nothing bad in discussing IPOB. If you don’t discuss with them, they will continue to give you trouble.
“We can’t be happy when other regions have six states and we have five. It shows that we are marginalised and cheated. That is what is causing the agitation in the region.
“Some groups are agitating that the zone should be a country on its own. Others are demanding restructuring because it is glaring that the South-East is being marginalised,” he noted.
