Let the use of brute force be the last option in matters of agitation. Battles can be won without the use of force. Having said that, I am not promoting Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB, but Buhari should lead Nigeria with equity and justice.
In every family, there are both the good and bad people. Agitation is normal in every society, but the way to go about it is to tread cautiously. I’m not for a division of Nigeria. But the Federal Government should engage in more of dialogue with agitating groups; use a carrot and stick approach instead of guns.
Fayose went on to say that restructuring is what the Nigeria needs now. He also stated that he has good intentions for Nigeria and his intention is not to divide the country Nigeria.
He further said that restructuring is not only what the opposition party, All Progressive Congress APC should handle alone. He further asked the opposition party APC to include members of the opposition party in the restructuring committee for Governor Nasir el-Rufai.
Ayodele Fayose also said:
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. Using brute force is not democratic. Running a democracy should not be by propaganda. Democracy is not autocracy.
