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.
