Biafra: Obasanjo Tells Buhari What To Do With Nnamdi Kanu by emymeeky: 7:57am On Sep 16, 2017
Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo has said President Muhammadu Buhari must meet with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, before the ongoing crisis gets out of hand.

Talking to Newsweek, Obasanjo, who as president met with Niger Delta militant leaders in 2006 to stop attacks on oil installations, said: “I don’t see anything wrong in that [Buhari meeting with Kanu]. I would not object to that; if anything, I would encourage it.

“I would want to meet Kanu myself and talk to people like him, people of his age, [and ask:] ‘What are your worries?’ Not only from the southeast but from all parts of Nigeria.”

He said the Army’s “heavy boot” response to pro-Biafra sentiment is “not the solution” and added that the secession craved by IPOB, is not the way forward either.

“We need to satisfy the youth in job creation, in wealth creation, in giving them a better, fulfilled life, in giving them hope for the future. There’s no easy way out,” Obasanjo added.

I wonder how OBJ would've handled this issue. Would he, in the first place, have allowed Kanu to be granted bail? He said he met with Niger/Delta militants. What was achieved through the meeting? Was it not the Yar'Adua administration that reached a peaceful resolution with them?
I respect you so much, OBJ, especially your objectivity and strong resolution. But whenever I remember Odi, I remember you gat no chill. Let people with diplomatic ways of reasoning advice PMB. Not you, sir.
