The Governor of Rivers State and Presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nyesom Enzo Wike, has called on the Muhammadu Buhari-led government to dialogue with the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

He stated this while speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Monday and monitored by Naija News.

According to him, no matter what people say he supports the agitation of the pro-Biafra group.

While recalling that IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu once sang his praises, Wike said he was against the violence perpetrated by the group.

Wike said: “IPOB is not a threat to me, it’s because of the division in the country that we have the kind of agitation we have today.

“There was a time IPOB was singing praises of Wike, Nnamdi Kanu was singing praises about Wike that he is our son.

“There is nothing wrong in people agitating but all the Federal Government should do is listen to their agitations, talk with them; there is nothing wrong about that.

“My problem came when they came to my state and burnt infrastructure like the courts, police stations, and I said told them not to do that.

“Whether anybody likes it or not, I support the agitation, I support that we should sit down and discuss the marginalization of the Southeast.

“I’m a governor and I asked them, do you need to kill people in my area, destroy infrastructures put in place for you to know I’m with you? I said no; I won’t do that.”
