Femi Adesina says President Muhammadu Buhari is ready to negotiate with Boko Haram members if they also decide for negotiation.
The Presidential spokesman on media and publicity Adesina had to share this on his facebook account.
”Most wars, however furious or vicious, often end around the negotiation table, Adesina said. ”So, if Boko Haram opts for negotiation, the government will not be averse to it. Government will, however, not be negotiating from a position of weakness, but that of strength. The machinery put in place, and which will be set in motion soon, can only devastate and decapitate insurgency. It is multinational in nature, and relief is on the way for Nigeria and her neighbours. President Muhammadu Buhari is resolute. He has battled and won insurgency before, he is poised to win again. It is a promise he made to Nigerians, and he is a promise keeper.”
Adesina added, ”But I say again, if the insurgents want to negotiate, no decent government will be averse to such. Didn’t the Talibans and Americans also negotiate in Afghanistan?”
