Ijaw leader, Chief Edwin Clark, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to declare full state of emergency in the North East.
Clark said this would enable the security agencies to finish the fight against Boko Haram terrorists unhindered.
Speaking on the recent adoption of over 100 students from Government Girls Science and Technical College, Dapchi, the former federal commissioner for information argued that anything short of full declaration of state of emergency in the North East would not yield the expected result.
He declared that a state of emergency where a sole administrator is appointed for at least six months would do the work.
He said a sole administrator unlike a political leader would take decisive action on the matter.
Clark described the abduction as a national embarrassment because it affects all irrespective of party affiliation.
