Senate Chief Whip, Orji Uzor has described the resurgence of attacks and insecurity in the Southeast as unfortunate, saying the impasse was not beyond a discussion that could restore peace and tranquility in the region.

He said, the situation cannot be solved politically, but through pacification of the people of the Southeast, adding that a committee should be set up to interact with the aggrieved.

Speaking at an interactive session with journalists at the National Assembly on Wednesday, the former Governor of Abia State insisted that President Buhari as a father of the nation should look into the grievances of the people of the Southeast with passion.

He maintained: “My position has always been that Buhari is the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and he is a father. As a father, the President should look passionately towards that Southeast.

“There is nothing special about people not being listened to. Buhari is the president of Nigeria. The problem can be solved not by political means and the South East governors should do more than they require. I was a governor and not just a senator. Governors should interact more with the people, as it’s not just the work of the President.

Kalu said governors should not abdicate from doing all they could to ensure peace, but should show commitment, instead leaving security issues to President Buhari.

According to him, it was normal that good and bad children exist anywhere, but depending on how they were handled, the nation needed unity more than anything else now.

“Our governors should do more, the President being the father of the nation. They might have some good children, some bad children. In the kingdom of a.King, you may have all kinds of people, so I want the President to look passionately into that area.

“Let him look back as a father of the nation and see how he can set up a small Committee and pacify the area, because this country needs unity more than anything that we needed.

“Without unity, those who are planning to run for House of Assembly election, Senatorial election and Presidential election are going nowhere. So it’s a thing that the president as a father and the people of the Southeast should sort themselves out.”
