The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called for a peaceful resolution to the security situation in the South-East.

According to the party, the only way to bring a lasting solution to the problem in the South-East is dialogue and not violence.

The PDP spokesman, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, in a statement obtained from Daily Post also said “PDP is committed to the continued corporate existence of Nigeria as one indivisible country. We at the same time acknowledge and respect the rights of the people anywhere to express their yearnings and aspirations within the confines of the laws of the land.

“At this time that tempers seem to be flaring up, dialogue, rather than violence, is the only viable option to resolve whatever problems are on ground in the South-East zone and indeed the entire country.

“What the country needs at this time is an atmosphere of peace and tranquility, without which no meaningful positive development in whatever sector can be attained, and the situation unfolding in the South-East, which is a very important component of the Nigerian family, is no doubt, inimical to our collective quest to take Nigeria higher.

Meanwhile, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia state has extended the dusk to dawn curfew to Friday, September 15, 2017.
