The National Orientation Agency (NOA) has formulated a strategy to check the on-going violence in parts of the country.
Details of the strategy will be unveiled in due course, according to the Director General (DG) of the agency, Mr. Mike Omeri.
Omeri told reporters in Abuja that the plan entails the creation of an effective platform for the citizens to engage their leaders.
He said: “It is time for dialogue; our leaders should rise up to the occasion and rescue our nation. It is time to re-ignite that love, that bond, that feeling of one nation which lies latently in every Nigerian.
Omeri said the agency had also designed another tool aimed at eliminating mutual suspicion within the polity. “We are going to deploy Citizen Dialogue as a means of building peace.”
