Boko Haram: I Am Now Ready For Dialogue –Sambo

The newly appointed National Security Adviser, Sambo Dasuki is working hard (or is it talking tough?). He said plans are now in top gear to meet with the leadership of the dreaded Islamist sect, Boko Haram, with a view to ending to killings of innocent Nigerians.

“I was in Yobe and Borno States last week and I have got the telephone numbers and contacts of key Boko Haram members and I will meet with them.
“I saw the dangerous effect of Boko Haram in these states and what I saw was pathetic. But I have the mandate to put heads together with religious and traditional leaders as well as the state governments to ensure an immediate ceasefire,” Mr. Dasuki said.

Mr. Dasuki expressed confidence that the troubled states could put their problems behind them and forge ahead with genuine peace and reconciliation. “I have a stake in Plateau because I have lived in Pankshin and Jos when my father resided here. So if we lived peacefully way back then, it is possible to go back to those good old days.

“Before now, it is difficult for me to believe that you can see a Fulani and Berom man together on the street of Plateau fighting. But the presence of various ethnic and religious groups at this parley is a pointer to the fact that we want to forge ahead.”
