The Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi has said Governors from the South East region has decided to discuss issues surrounding ongoing agitation by the indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB with the president.
“We have listened to the complaints of the boys. There is no way anybody could say that what they are saying is completely outside the truth, but just like husband and wife, you must have a way of getting along through dialogue.
“The Governors of the South-East have taken up their matter to discuss with Mr. President and I believe that we don’t need another war in this country. I want to plead with you to encourage whoever is involved that we have taken up the matter and we will do everything possible to make sure that their feelings are addressed.
“We should not support secession. We should not support demonstrations; we should not support the castigation of our leaders”.
The Governors said when he received the leadership of the Abakpa Main Market Traders Association at the Government House
