Governors Consider Negotiating With Bandits, Criminals




The Nigeria Governors’ Forum might be considering dialogue with bandits and other criminals following the high spate of kidnapping and crimes in the country.

This indication was given in Niger State by Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State who doubles the chairman of the NGF.

Fayemi who led some members of the forum on a solidarity visit to the Niger governor, Sani Bello, in Minna, the state capital, disclosed that there is a need to explore other avenues even if it means engaging in dialogue.

He said: “We also need to explore other avenues side by side with whatever the security institutions are doing if that means engaging in dialogue We may not have a choice. We may have to do that, anything to help us to deal with this immediate crisis and then to begin to address on a much more longer time basis, the root causes of this social dislocation responsible for what we are witnessing, all around us.”
