Turai advised Jonathan to close his ears to anyone who advises him not to grant the sect amnesty.
She said this in Lagos on Friday night during the Award Gala Night organised by the Niger Delta Young Professionals.
Turai said, “When Yar’Adua saw that the people in the Niger Delta, particularly the children were dying callously, he (Yar’Adua) took it upon himself to grant amnesty to the militants to ensure lasting peace.
“There is poverty in the North. What Yar’Adua did in the Niger Delta, let Jonathan do the same thing to the North.
“Mr. President should not allow his advisers to deceive him. Let him sit down and think about the insecurity in the North.”
