Also, the Minister of Information; Alhaji Lai Mohammed in a media briefing on the issues said that Acting President, Prof. Osinbajo will be addressing traditional rulers and leaders of thought from the South East on Friday.
He explained that the idea behind the consultative meeting was to discuss the continuous unity and peaceful co-existence.
The Minister of Information disclosed, “On the 22nd of June there will be a joint consultative meeting of all the groups, that is the traditional rulers, religious leaders and leaders of thought from both the south eastern part of Nigeria and the northern part of Nigeria,” he said. “The call for people from certain parts of the country to relocate to their region is generally very disquieting voices.
“The idea is not just to assure Nigerians that we are doing something about it but also to give comfort to all Nigerians that this matter is completely under control. To assure Nigerians that any Nigerian anywhere is save, the security authorities are completely on top of the matter and that they will deal decisively with any group of people whose conduct that is believed is going to create instability in the country.”
