Negotiate With Boko Haram For The Sake Of Peace, NBA Tells FG

The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Thursday called on the President, Dr Goodluck Jonathan to reconsider his position that the federal government would not negotiate with terrorists for the release of the 234 girls abducted a month ago at Chibok, Borno State.

In a speech he delivered Thursday in Abuja at the meeting of the National Executive Council of the association, NBA’s president, Chief Okey Wali, SAN, said that no option should be foreclosed in achieving peace.

Several Nigerians have said it would be wrong to negotiate with the sect as that may start a series of events the federal government would not be able to contain. Some specifically said it would encourage other militant groups to crop up and do despicable things believing the would escape justice if they play their cards right.

The lawyers, however said peace is the ultimate thing the government should be looking at achieving at the moment, regardless of the sacrifices involved.

Although, it took the association one month‎ to condemn the abduction of the Chibok girls, Wali nevertheless said the Federal Government acted too slow in its response to the abduction.
