Mrs. Florida Ita-Giwa - I can only follow in the Peace talk with the Niger Delta Militant if........

According to GutsyNaija, the former Presidential Adviser, Senator Florence Ita-Giwa, says she will take part in negotiations for peace in the troubled Niger Delta only if the Federal Government of Nigeria will involve credible Nigerians.
Ita-Giwa spoke against the backdrop of reports that she had agreed to join the Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta for a peace talk with the Federal Government of Nigeria.
GutsyNaija has it that In a statement on Wednesday, the former presidential aide noted that she would be part of any discussion that would bring lasting peace to the region instead of destruction.
She, however, noted that such negotiations must include the resettlement of the abandoned people of Bakassi that had been displaced for years following the ceding of the oil-rich island to Cameroon.
She said, “Recently, my attention has been drawn to a widespread report in the national dailies that I have agreed to serve in dialogue team with the Federal Government.
“I was, however, contacted by a representative of the Movement for the Emancipation of Niger Delta asking if I will be part of an initiative to find ways to end the ongoing attacks through dialogue towards restoring peace in the region.
“In my response, I said that I will consider serving if the Federal Government is willing to engage in discussions with credible Nigerians that have genuine interest and sympathy for the people of the region.
“Again, I said I will serve in order to put in place a lasting solution to the hostility and thereby bring succour to the people of the region. I shall also be willing to be part of the dialogue for the benefit of the people of the region and by extension, the numerous displaced Bakassi indigenes neglected over the years.”
