The President of Vision Africa International, Bishop Dr Sunday Ndukwo Onuoha has warned against using the military option only in addressing the current insecurity bedevilling Nigeria.
Bishop Onuoha was speaking during NTA live television program monitored by Vision Africa Radio and stated the need for dialogue by those in authority to bring every person to the table to ensure peace.
According to him, the 1967 war came because people refused to go back to dialogue, adding there is nothing better than dialogue with fairness, equity and justice where people will be treated equally. He stressed the need to listen to those who are angry especially those agitating across the nation.
The Methodist cleric emphasized the importance of government to build trust as well as confidence by matching their words with action, adding that the issues raised by ENDSARS Protestants have not been attended to particularly the welfare of the police and other security agents.
While charging that the traditional authorities must be respected to enable them to function better, Bishop Onuoha wants government at all levels to protect the community and withdraw from using force to enthrone peace.
