The Federal Government is currently reaching out to some leaders of thought in the South-East to intervene in the growing pro-Biafra protests in that part of the country. President Muhammadu Buhari has also received the assurances of state governors in the geopolitical zone that the issue has being adequately addressed.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, said this in an interview on Saturday.
Adesina was responding to a question on whether the President was considering inviting leaders of the protesters for talks or will use South-East governors and other leaders of thought to reach out to them.
The presidential spokesman said the President was concerned about all parts of the country and would always follow due process and the rule of law in tackling any issue.
He said the protests formed part of the agenda of the last Council of State meeting.
He said during a discussion on the matter, a governor from the region assured council members that the issue was being handled.
Adesina said, “Government is in communication with credible leaders of the South-East on the Biafra issue.
“At the last Council of State meeting, one of the governors from the region assured council members that the issue was being looked into.
“The leaders of thought are working already. The President is concerned about every part of the country, but he will always respect due process and rule of law.”
