The Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige has disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari affirmed that dialogue is the way to go to resolve the security situation in the south-east.
Ngige made this call on Sunday, June 20, after a meeting with the President alongside the President’s Chief Of Staff, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari.
Addressing state house correspondents after the meeting, Senator Ngige said the President has also enabled series of dialogues to be held with leaders in the region.
He added that discussions at the meeting equally encapsulated what the south-east is demanding from the Federal Government as well as what the government plans to do for the region to assuage the feelings of the people.
Ngige further disclosed that complaints from the national labour union regarding a breach of an agreement had reached the President; and they have begun plans to halt any further friction in the midst of the fragile situation within Kaduna State.
Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Abdulrasheed Bawa, has revealed that the leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu is under investigation.
The EFCC made this assertion on Sunday, June 20, via a statement; while cautioning that the findings could take a long time.
Bawa said, “You asked me a question earlier about arresting people before the EFCC investigation; and now you are saying why didn’t we arrest Tinubu? Why didn’t you just say ‘arrest him?’
“Investigation is ongoing. When you are investigating matters like this, they don’t end in a day. Thousands of investigations are going on, on a daily basis.
“You understand? You know you are from the media. After you will say we are doing media trial.”
