Former Abia State governor and present Senate Chief Whip, Orji Uzor Kalu, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to change his approach towards the southeast.
Speaking at an interactive session with journalists at the National Assembly on Wednesday, Kalu urged Buhari to pacify people of the region.
While lamenting the increase of insecurity in the southeast, the former governor stated that peaceful will not be restored politically.
He called for the establishment of a committee to interact with the aggrieved and find a lasting solution.
The former Governor of Abia State said: “My position has always been that Buhari is the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and he is a father. As a father, the President should look passionately towards that Southeast.
“There is nothing special about people not being listened to. Buhari is the president of Nigeria. The problem can be solved not by political means and the South East governors should do more than they require. I was a governor and not just a senator. Governors should interact more with the people, as it’s not just the work of the President.”
Speaking further, he stated that governor should not pass all the responsibility to President Buhari as they can plan a vital role in restoring peace to the troubled region.
He stated that governors must show commitment and should not abdicate from doing all they could to ensure peace.
Orji Uzor Kalu said: “Our governors should do more, the President being the father of the nation. They might have some good children, some bad children. In the kingdom of a.King, you may have all kinds of people, so I want the President to look passionately into that area.
“Let him look back as a father of the nation and see how he can set up a small Committee and pacify the area, because this country needs unity more than anything that we needed.”
