He maintained that the current emergency rule in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states does not foreclose the need for dialogue in the zone and other places.
Atiku spoke as the special guest of honour at the 4th District Conference 2013 of the Rotary International in Abuja .
He said “the government must do all that is necessary in a democratic society to protect lives and property. Thus, there is the need to engage aggrieved groups in dialogue while taking decisive security measures to protect innocent people. I hope that the current emergency rule in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states does not obviate the urgent need for such dialogue in that zone and elsewhere.”
The formal Vice President blamed the insecurity on unemployment, poverty and corrupt practices.
Governor, Rotary District 9125 Mr. Felix Obadan said the organization has spent over $1billion on polio eradication in Nigeria, adding that Rotaryneeds N500 million to build  office in the Federal Capital Territory, although donors have pledged N100 million.
