ABAKALIKI-GOVERNOR David Umahi of Ebonyi state, weekend revealed that the Governors of the South East geopolitical zone had taken a decision to discuss issues revolving around the recent agitation by the indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB in the country.
Governor Umahi made this known when he received the leadership of the Abakpa Main Market Traders Association at the Government House in Abakaliki.
According to Umahi the South-East Governors had listened to the complaints and had decided to discuss the issues 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”.
