A prominent Northern political leader, Bashiru Tofa, on Friday asked the Nigerian government to urgently convene a national peace conference to tackle issues of political agitations and crisis rocking the nation.
Tofa, the National Republican Convention, NRC, candidate in the annulled June 12, 1993 presidential election, said the conference would particularly address the agitations of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB which has led to an invasion of the South-east by the military and has led to violence.
Meanwhile, the Southern Kaduna Peoples Union, SOKAPU, has called for the implementation of the report of the 2014 National Conference.
Their request is coming months after the pan-Yoruba socio-political group, Afenifere, had also urged the Nigerian government to commence the process for the implementation of the recommendations of conference.
