There Is Nothing Wrong Negotiating With Bandits, Says Gov Matawalle

There Is Nothing Wrong Negotiating With Bandits, Says Gov Matawalle

By Ehis Davies

Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawalle says it is not a sign of failure on the part of the government if they decide to negotiate with bandits.

Matawalle stated this when he welcomed and embraced repentant bandits who surrendered their weapons
on Monday.

He also described as unfortunate the thinking of some politicians who regarded the peace initiative as a failure, arguing that every war ends on the dialogue table.

“It is not a failure or thing of failure for someone to initiate dialogue. Nowhere in the world is succeeding without coming to the table to sit down and negotiate.

“Just for today, the weapons we have here show and indicate the successes we have recorded because leaving this kind of dangerous weapons in the bush can create a lot of havoc.

“By bringing them to the security agencies, we have reduced their capacity and capability. Allowing these weapons to carry their weapons round to communities, cross-border to other states, that is what has made Nigeria be in the hot seat as of today,” he said.
