Amid the security challenges in parts of the country, the Vice Chancellor, University of Abuja, Prof. Michael Adikwu, says peace and unity are achievable in the land, if pursued.
Adikwu made the remark on Sunday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
‘’Peace and unity is achievable in Nigeria because if you pursue it, you can achieve it,” he said
”Let me tell you, what happens with Nigerian system is that we don’t subject things to research.
”In China for instance, before they take any decision, it is subjected to research.
‘’What are the causes of all these conflicts; the Boko Haram problem, herdsmen-farmers’ clash, etc?
”We have to understand what they are looking for,” he said.
According to him, if you put people who can study all these details, step by step, you will get the framework you can work on to ensure there is peace.
”You can’t just look at it on the surface that if you do this, it may not work,” he added.
The Don expressed optimism that the problems of insurgency, Indigenous People’s of Biafra (IPOB) and herdsmen/farmers’ conflicts, among others, would not threaten the forthcoming general elections.
He called on the politicians in the country to support the Independent National Electoral Commission toward conducting peaceful and credible elections.(NAN)
