The South-East Governors’ Forum has declared that members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) are not speaking for the entire region on their call for secession, News Express reports.
The governors, who met on Saturday in Enugu State to figure out ways of curbing the current security crisis bedeviling the region, condemned all secession agitations in the country.
Chairman of the forum and Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, who stated this while addressing newsmen shortly after the meeting, said they believe in one Nigeria.
“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.
