Terrorist sect Boko Haram yesterday said they were ready to ceasefire but gave conditions:
1. Former Head of State, Muhammed Buhari as leader of the negotiating team.
2. Dialogue must take place in Saudi Arabia, not Nigeria
3. Arrest and prosecution of former Governor of Borno State, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff.
4. All their members who were arrested must be released immediately.
5. Their wives and children who were displaced following the crises should be rehabilitated into the society
Presidential spokesman Reuben Abati said yesterday that the President has gotten their offer and said it was a welcome development. Should the Nigerian government negotiate with terrorists? Please share your thoughts...

I think the terrorists are getting tired. Their days are numbered, so they now want the short cut to surrendering. Why must it be Saudi Arabia? The war on them has almost ended. They either repent or be wiped out.

2. Dialogue must take place in Saudi Arabia, not Nigeria(No! We are not Arabs.)
3. Arrest and prosecution of former Governor of Borno State, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff.(Why don't they bomb him instead of churches?)
4. All their members who were arrested must be released immediately.(Bull sh*t!)
5. Their wives and children who were displaced following the crises should be rehabilitated into the society (What about their 72 virgins?)

In my own opinion negotiating with Boko Haram or any terrorist group for that matter is not entirely a bad idea if such move can bring the needed peace ....The word negotiation simply means "mutual discussion of terms of an agreement"... There is nothing bad with the Government discussing with the people mentioned by Boko Haram as negotiators if only they are sincere..... Every war be it internal or external ends with negotiations and peace treaty hence the word 'Negotiation' is not alien to the situation we have found ourselves .... Am not saying that the Government should accept all the conditions given by the terrorist group.... If it's a negotiation them there is room for the Government accept or reject any of the conditions with reasons and also state her own conditions or whatsoever for a treaty.... No price is really too much for peace... After all it's the innocent and defend-less that are been killed, maimed, rendered orphans, Widows, childless etc.... If negotiation is the way out this problem that has claimed thousands of innocent souls, why not we drop our egos and sentiments and embrace it at-least for the sake of the defend-less and harmless Nigerians that are at the receiving end?..

I strongly accept d concept of negotiation even if it takes Ali Sheriff to hanged. Govt shld pls accept their proposal they hav nothin to loose.
