WORLD NEWS: Colombian President Receives Nobel Peace Prize for Signing Peace Deal with Rebel Group

It is not only in Nigeria that aggrieved groups constantly disrupt the government. Colombia ( a latin American country) has achieved a height many countries are seeking in curtailing rebel groups. The Revolutionary
Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC)) are Colombia's largest rebel group. They were founded in 1964 as the armed wing of the Communist Party.

Their main founders were small farmers and land workers who had banded together to fight against the staggering levels of inequality in Colombia at the time. The Farc were founded at a time of brutal repression against any form of action considered subversive. Colombia has historically been a country which suffers from huge levels of inequality, where vast swathes of land are owned by a very small elite.

About 260,000 people were killed and more than six million internally displaced in Colombia during the war between the Colombian government and FARC rebel groups.

However, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to end the 52-year conflict with left-wing rebels. The Nobel committee praised him for a peace deal signed with FARC rebels, but rejected by Colombians in a vote. The award did not include FARC leader Rodrigo Londono, known as Timochenko, who also signed the accord.

The peace deal was rejected by 50.2% of voters who went to the polls on 2 October. Despite the rejection by voters, Mr Santos vowed to continue with talks with the rebels.
Relating this to what is happening in Nigeria. The government of the day is still battling to end the activities of insurgent groups like Boko-Haram, Biafra Agitators, Niger-Delta Militants, to mention but a few.

The questions on my lips are:
1. Do you see a Nigeria without Boko-Haram, Biafra Agitators, or Niger Delta militants?
2. Can the present government or future governments in Nigeria put to a total END of all the Rebel groups in Nigeria and unit everyone just as Colombian president did?

@ahile: it takes good leadership for aggrived groups to reconcile

Young Agu Esteem

Endy, mind you. Inasmuch as I don't support Biafra dosen't make them Rebel group. Just that Biafra wants to stay on their own because of being marginalized, simple.

Endy Edeson

ok. @young. noted. that's your opinion

Emmanuel Gilbert

Endy Edeson Nigeria really doesn't have rebels, we just have leaders who talk anyhow and instigate violence, imagine a president saying he will give 5% allocation to people who didn't vote him to power, is that not a declaration to anarchy?
