Biafra: Fayose reacts to ‘IPOB sponsorship’, warns Buhari, APC

​Ekiti state g​overnor​, ​Ayodele Fayose​, has again denied accusation of sponsoring activities of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)​.

Fayose, who stated that he is not working for the division of Nigeria​, warned President Muhammadu Buhari to stop using force against the agitators.​

​He advised the APC government​n​t ​to dialogue with the group so as to reach a workable resolution.

​Fayose said these in series of tweets via his Twitter handle @GovAyoFayose on Sunday.

He wrote: “I’m not for division of Nigeria. But FG should engage in more of dialogue with agitating groups; use carrot & stick approach instead of guns.

​”​In every family, there are both the good & bad people. Agitation is normal in every society. But the way to go about it is to tread cautiously.

“​@MBuhari should know that this is not 1984 when the President ruled as a military dictator.

“​Using brute force is not democratic. Running a democracy should not be by propaganda. Democracy is not autocracy.

​”​What this government needs to do is to restructure and this matter should not be handled by the APC. It should not be a party affair.

​”​Having said that, I am not promoting IPOB, but Buhari should lead Nigeria with equity and justice.

​”​Let the use of brute force becomes the last option in matters of agitation. Battles can be won without the use of force​.”​

Meanwhile, Emmanuel, the brother of Nnamdi Kanu, has revealed IPOB’s next line of action.
