The National Security Adviser (NSA), Nuhu Ribadu, has lauded the new peace initiative in the South-East, saying it was a bold and courageous way to restore tranquility in the region.
Recall that the project is a new peace initiative championed by an organisation known as Peace in the South-East Project (PISE-P), which is pushing for a non-kinetic means of resolving the security and other sociological challenges in the South-East, improving infrastructure and achieving inclusion of the zone in the national equation.
So far, the initiative has gained the endorsement of Vice President, Kashim Shettima, the leadership of the National Assembly, the business class and many other notable Nigerians and institutions across the country.
Receiving a delegation of the organisation led by the deputy speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Benjamin Okezie Kalu, on a courtesy call Thursday night, the NSA Ribadu said with PISE-P, common sense has taken over.
He said: “This is very good. Now, common sense has taken over. I think it’s a wonderful thing. It is the right thing to do. This is a bold, courageous one. The way you are going is the way it should come out. Our people have suffered. Unfortunately, things do happen. But let’s put it behind. This government is a different one. The President started very well. It’s a good one.”
Earlier, Deputy Speaker Kalu told the NSA that the new message of peace has received massive support from the people.
“You encouraged me to lead from the front. The message of peace is a good one and it’s been embraced by all. We are using every platform to push it. Our people are responding. They say we want peace. We have developed a concept note. The DG DSS has been in support of this. This is what we have been doing anywhere we go to. Peace is better,” Kalu said.
Similarly, the Chief of Staff to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Rt. Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, has also endorsed the peace initiative.
Gbajabiamila gave his endorsement on Thursday when Kalu also led another delegation to inform him about the peace initiative for the South-East region.
