Former Ghanaian president JJ Rawlings had warned Nigerians against the use of violent reform of the nations political and socio- economic landscape. He said such times were gone and the best way to effect change lies in dialogue and peaceful means.
Rawlings, who ruled Ghana for nearly 20 years was in Nigeria for the Commonwealth Local government forum in Nigeria.
He said Nigeria has the persons and institutions and required proper application of the laws to stem corruption. He applauded the peaceful way Nigeria had handled the current agitation occasioned by the ill-health of President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua.
