Acting President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday said that the Federal Government is very much aware of the raging agitation in the country and called on the agitators to agitate with grace.

Osinbajo, who stated this in a statement released by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Mr. Laolu Akande, assured that the Federal Government is working assiduously to address issues warranting the agitations.

The statement summed up the different consultative meetings Osinbajo had with critical stakeholders on the agitators in parts of the country, explaining that the Federal Government after the meetings which ended last week is now ready to have the grievances addressed.

To achieve that, Akande said the Presidency would continue to actively engage with different segments of the Nigerians at different points and arrangement in the near future.

According to him, the consultations were targeted at ensuring a platform for honest and open discussions between the concerned stakeholders and Nigerian public at large on matters involving the unity, peace and security of the nation.

Ethnic agitations which have given rise to call for secession by some groups of youth from the South East and October 1 ultimatum for Ndigbo to vacate all northern states by the Arewa youths, Akande said will dominate the meetings.
