Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose has said although he does not promote the Independent People of Biafra, President Muhammadu Buhari was going about tackling the agitation of IPOB in a wrong manner.

In a series of posts on social media networking site, Twitter, Fayose said Buhari should lead Nigeria in an equitable manner.

He tweeted, “Let the use of brute force be the last option in matters of agitation. Battles can be won without the use of force. Having said that, I am not promoting IPOB, but Buhari should lead Nigeria with equity and justice.

“In every family there are both the good and bad people. Agitation is normal in every society but the way to go about it is to tread cautiously. I’m not for division of Nigeria. But the Federal Government should engage in more of dialogue with agitating groups; use carrot and stick approach instead of guns.”

He added, “What this government needs to do is to restructure and this matter should not be handled by the APC. It should not be a party affair. Using brute force is not democratic. Running a democracy should not be by propaganda. Democracy is not autocracy.”
