President Muhammadu Buhari has affirmed the use of dialogue as the means to resolve the security situation in the south-east.

This is according to the Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday, alongside the President’s Chief of Staff, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari.

The minister added that complaints from the National Labour Union (NLC), regarding a breach of agreement had reached the President and they have began plans to halt any further friction in the midst of the fragile situation within Kaduna State.

Meanwhile members of the South East Governors’ Forum have condemned the activities of secessionist groups in the region and other parts of the country.

This was disclosed by the Chairman of the Forum and Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, at the South East governors meeting in Enugu State in a bid to tackle the security challenges and restore peace in the region.

The forum distanced themselves from the agitations of such groups and frowned on the violence that ensued which led to the loss of lives and destruction of properties, whilst pleading with leaders of other regions to protect the Igbos living in their regions.
