South East governors have asked Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to opt for dialogue and not confrontation with government in its agitation for Biafra.
Ebonyi State governor and Chairman of the South East Governors Forum, Dave Umahi, speaking after a meeting with IPOB Leader, Nnamdi Kanu at the Enugu government house in Enugu, said the demand of IPOB should not be absolute.
Umahi reading a communique of the meeting said that the forum will hold another round of meeting with IPOB leaders to resolve issues in their pro-Biafra agitation.
“The meeting agreed that these demands by IPOB should not be absolute, rather the South-east Governors shall immediately engage the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, and the entire leadership of IPOB to further meetings and dialogue with a view to quickening the resolutions of all issues amicably,” Umahi said briefly.
Kanu was accompanied to the meeting by his father.
The meeting was attended by only Enugu and Ebonyi state governors as well as Anambra state deputy governor, Dr. Nkem Okeke and Professor Ben Nwabueze.
