According to reports via Uzomedia, Naij, Nairaland, Linda Ikeji Blog, this development is contained in a statement released today by the spokesman for the dialogue group, Ballantyne Agiri.
The statement in part reads: “The body has collectively and willingly agreed to heed the clarion call of eminent Nigerians and international community to dialogue with the Federal Government. The federal government should from the inception of the dialogue rule out from the agenda any monthly monetary inducement or stipend for the NDA.
The federal government should be ready for structural changes that should be human and development oriented. Members of the avengers’ group (who will participate in the dialogue) have already been selected, each based on his integrity, forthrightness, honesty and life track records.
The names of members of the group for now shall not be made public for personal reasons until they begin functioning in few days ahead.”
