Some governors from the South-East region have announced their plans to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari over the prolonged detention of the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu.

The governors made the announcement in Enugu while addressing journalists after a meeting.

VON gathered that the governors led by David Umahi – the chairman of the forum  said issues discussed include the release of Nnamdi Kanu from detention at the Kuje Prison, the growing agitation for the freedom of Biafra by the IPOB and the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) among many others.

 

“Today, we discussed a number of issues, but let’s first announce to you that our secretariat here in Enugu is now fully functional, so that if you have a need to contact the South-East Governors Forum, you do that through our secretariat.”

The governors made the announcement in Enugu while addressing journalists after a meeting.

“Fortunately it is also in government house Enugu,” Umahi said. The Ebonyi state governor added that:

“On the issue of IPOB, MASSOB, Kanu’s detention, ecological problems of South East, various water dams that have been abandoned in South East, our challenges of power, our challenges of security, and other very many concerns of our people, the South East governors today agreed to meet with the various and appropriate authorities of federal presence to address these problems.

We are very committed to this and actions already started on these issues.”

He also said that the governors have agreed to meet with all stakeholder from the South-East to discuss and address all issues that are of interest and important to the people from the region.

“We approved economic committee of South-East governors and we have mandated then to immediately meet and fashion out roadmap towards our economic integration and this we will do in coming weeks so that they will present a road map for our economic indices and development in our next meeting,” Umahi said.

The meeting in Enugu was attended by governors of Enugu, Imo and Anambra states, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Rochas Okorocha and Willie Obiano respectively.

Recall that Governor Okorocha had earlier for a national reconciliation in Nigeria especially among the South-East people.

Okorocha had also blamed Nnamdi Kanu for his arrest and subsequent detention. He said although the IPOB leader exhibited some youthful exuberance while making his agitation for the freedom of Biafra by insulting some leaders in the country including him now is the time for reconciliation.
