The speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, says dialogue is key to finding a lasting solution to the brewing ethnic clashes in the country,
He said this while fielding question from journalists after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential villa on Wednesday
He said: “Everybody just has to come to the table and discuss and come to an amicable resolution which I’m sure we will.
“I don’t think any ethnic group should lord it over any ethic group, the south west should not lord it over the north, the north should not lord it over the south.
“We should respect each other’s trade, geographical space, history, culture and more importantly the issue of crime, murder, all those things should be completely jettisoned. But more importantly, we all have to sit on the table and discuss this matter and look for the way forward. I think everybody is willing to do that.
“From the National Assembly, solutions will come from talking. I believe that now that we’re about to start work on Tuesday, I know these issues will come up and adequate and proper legislation that’ll address the issue frontally and in the best interest of the country, and all nations that make up the nation such legislation will be put in place.”
