Northern governors welcome dialogue with Boko Haram

The Northern States Governors Forum (NSGF) has applauded federal government’s acceptance of the offer of negotiation by Islamic sect; Boko Haram, hoping that the initiative will bring in peace, security and tranquility in the country after years of bloodshed.

A statement by the forum made available to Channels Television in Minna, the Niger state capital, stated that “dialogue rather than use of force, would help find a lasting solution to the worsening insecurity of lives and property in the country.”

The 19 northern governors also condemned Friday’s attacks in Maiduguri, Borno State in which a civil war veteran and former member of the Supreme Military Council, General Mamman Shuwa was gunned down.

According to the governors, this is one attack too many, as they urged all terrorists across the country to immediately stop their attacks.

The statement also expressed the forum’s condolences to the families of General Shuwa as well as families of 40 other people that were reportedly killed in similar attack saying, “no grievance can justify such dastardly acts against innocent people.”

    While my belief is total that this Country would one day become great again, I atimes wonder if that belief is not just wishful thinking. We seem to have lost it! Elected State governors applauding the Federal Government for accepting to dialogue with terrorists? Baffling ! Which Country in the world has ever done that? What moral lessons are we teaching the younger generations? Is the government indirectly telling us they are surrendering to the superiority of the “sect” over it’s own security operatives? God help us!
    This is the only Country where thieves are applauded and given honorary positions in the guise of helping to catch other thieves.
    Mark my words, this is just the beginning as the Government is clearly showing how vulnerable it’s security apparatus is by this action. Trust me, another group will soon emerge!!! The government should get ready for another dialogue. We are waiting and watching!!!

    Honestly, i am tired of reading some fork tale here. This people should go home and put their house in order for God’s sake. Why not the 19northern Governors negotiate with their children( Boko Haram) and give us the feed back. You can only send a condolence message when you are effected. Nonsense leaders……..Boko will visit all of you one by one>>>,<<<< This is just the beginning
