South-East Governors’ Forum says leaders of the region are working to find a political solution to resolve challenges of insecurity and the continued incarceration of separatist leader Nnamdi Kanu.
The forum chairman, governor of Ebonyi State, Dave Umahi said the region had identified some spokespersons of the separatist group, Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) and are making serious progress in addressing their concerns.
Umahi assured that the governors forum, the socio-cultural group, Ohanaeze Nd’igbo and the Conference of Southeast Bishops and Traditional Rulers were working hard to ensure adequate security in all parts of the zone.
“South-East governors are studying their reports with the elders and leaders of the various South-East states and very soon we will be meeting with the federal government on these issues.
“We are also looking at deploying political solutions in the case of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, IPOB leader, which we have already initiated,’’ Umahi said
On Anambra election, Umahi pleaded with all security agencies deployed for the exercise to secure the lives of the people in Anambra while operating within the rules of their engagements.
