Imo state Governor, Rochas Okorocha has called for a meeting of stakeholders and Ohaneze Ndi Igbo to tackle the issue of Biafra currently threatening the unity of the country.
The Imo state governor in a statement through his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemeodo expressed concern on the turn of events, stating that it is not in the best interest of the South East.
“The meeting is expected to take place this weekend in Owerri, the Imo State capital. Already the Governor has begun to make all the necessary contacts to ensure that all those expected to be at the meeting, would be in attendance.”
“It has become increasingly necessary for the governors in the zone, Ohaneze leaders and other stakeholders in the area to meet, to call a spade, a spade.”
“At the end of the Owerri meeting, the governors and other leaders will take a common position and will also invite the leaders of the pro-Biafra groups for a meeting, to let them know the socio-economic and political implications of their activities, including their demand for sovereignty in a united Nigeria”.
