Vice President Kashim Shettima has endorsed the adoption of a non-kinetic approach to tackling insecurity in the South East region of the country.

He stated this on Tuesday while receiving a delegation led by the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Benjamin Kalu, on a courtesy visit to the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The delegation under the auspices of the Peace in South East Project (PISE-P) visited the VP to present the initiative and invite him for the launch of the project that proposes a non-kinetic solution to the crisis in the South East region.

Speaking after a brief introduction of the new initiative, the vice president endorsed the concept, noting that the “Approach is the most beautiful I have seen so far.

“We need to build bridges, there is a need for a handshake, that way, those that have not been radicalised can be captured,” he added in a statement by his spokesman, Stanley Nkwocha.

Shettima, who explained the wisdom in adopting a non-kinetic approach in addressing the security situation in the South East, said it would save the region from endless war.

He stated: “Unless we want to engage in an endless war of attrition, a non-kinetic solution to the crisis in the South East must be explored and deployed. The most atrocious of wars are at the end of the day sorted out on the negotiation table.

“It is how you build bridges that will determine how far you go as a people and society. We have to reach out to the youths; we have to empower them. Once we empower them, the crisis, the agitation and insecurity will vanish”.

Earlier in his address, the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Kalu, reiterated the call for a non-kinetic approach to addressing the security challenges facing the South East region.

Kalu expressed optimism that the Peace in South East Project could bring hope to the region, similar to how other parts of the country have seen improvement.

He emphasised the need for new solutions, acknowledging that past approaches have not yielded the desired results.
