Secession: Southeast Governors Condemn IPOB, Want United Nigeria




Members of the South East Governors’ Forum have distanced themselves from the agitations of secessionist groups in the region and other parts of the country.


They also condemned the violence that followed the agitations which led to the loss of lives and destruction of properties.

The governors met on Saturday in Enugu State to deliberate on ways to tackle the security challenges and restore peace in the region.

The Chairman of the Forum and Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, spoke on behalf of the governors at the end of the meeting.

“We condemn in totality, the activities of violent secessionist groups in the South East and elsewhere.

“We firmly proclaim that we do not support them, they do not speak for South East.

“The impression that South-East leaders are silent over some of our youths’ agitations for secession is not correct.

“South-East Governors, Ohanaeze President, National Assembly members, notable leaders had come out publicly many times in the past to speak against such agitations.

“In order not to mismanage the unfortunate situation, South-East leaders have set up a committee to engage such youths to stop and allow elders speak to address such fears,” he said.
