Omare also urged President Buhari to immediately address the agitations in the Niger Delta region, the IPOB agitations and the different calls for self-determination and restructuring in the country.
According to him“We want to strongly advise President Buhari not to be misled by selfish politicians to disregard the different agitations in the country. The agitations are genuine and must be addressed for the country to make progress.
