We support Buhari’s use of military to checkmate IPOB – 36 states Speakers | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Speakers of the 36 states have passed a motion supporting President Muhammadu Buhari’s use of security agencies to checkmate activities of Biafra agitators.

In a special session that took place at the Imo state House of Assembly, the Majority leader, Lugard Osuji, presented the motion which was sponsored by all the 36 Speakers of the state Houses of Assembly.

The House adopted the motion and passed a resolution which reads as follows:

“The President is urged to direct all security agencies to monitor the activities of the groups and ensure that perpetrators of violence and breach of peace are promptly and decisively dealt with in accordance with the law of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“The violent approach adopted by the members of the various ethnic, political and religious groups whose actions are threatening the unity and territorial integrity of Nigeria is hereby condemned.

“Any ethnic group or persons that have complaints or grievances should channel such complaints or grievances through their elected representatives at the Federal or state levels.

“All ethnic, political and religious groups, herdsmen, farmers, aggrieved ethnic groups and agitators are urged to stop all hostilities and any act that is capable of triggering crisis.”

However, the Ondo State Speaker, Bamidele Oleyelogun, expressed a contrary view when he requested that the reasons for the various agitations should be looked into;

He said: “Why don’t we ask why those people agitating are doing so? We must know their reasons, especially now that we are talking about power devolution.”
