The Senator representing Kaduna Central, Shehu Sani has advised the Federal Government not to use force in addressing the Biafran agitation.
Sani said this on Sunday while speaking with newsmen in Kano.
The Senator said dialogue and utmost care should be employed in addressing the renewed agitation.
“Although after the civil war, we created institutions to foster unity and create sense of belonging, we failed as a nation to entrench the spirit of oneness and togetherness in the minds of the people.
“And that is the reason why a nation united by force is vulnerable and a nation united by justice is impregnable,” Sani said.
He added that the people behind the Biafran agitation “are a new generation of young men and women, who have not experienced war and have not suffered from the war and have not seen the consequences of wars.”
He urged the FG to engage all parts of Nigeria politically, economically, socially and culturally.
