Nigeria’s Attorney-General of the federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami (SAN), gave an insight that the Federal Government may consider all kinds of Solutions, including a political, in a way to settle the crisis pertaining to separatist agitations in Nigeria.
This was revealed in an interview with Journalists in Abuja yesterday, Wednesday, it was base on the pardon granted to Boko Haram insurgents while leaders of the other separatist movement are facing Court trials.
“Although such consideration was not yet on the table, the government would not mind taking a shot at it”. Says AGF Malami when journalists asked him if Federal Government was not disposed to a political solution to the separatist agitations of the Yoruba Nationalist, Sunday Igboho and the leader of Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) Nnamdi Kanu.
“As far as security situation is concerned and as far as governance and this administration is concerned, you cannot rule out all possibilities. But then there has to be an approach for government to consider.” Says Malami
AGF Malami said there can’t be consideration for reconciliation without an approach to it.
He further highlighted by saying “We will look into it (approach) for the purpose of looking at its weight, the authenticity of it, the good faith associated with it and then bring about the considerable factors relating to the negotiations or otherwise.”
He stated that there has to be an approach and a counter consideration to the reconciliation.
