We Are Committed To One United Nigeria – South-East Governors



The Chairman, South East Governors’ Forum and Governor of Ebonyi, David Umahi, has reiterated the commitment of the South-East Governors to see to it that there is one United Nigeria amidst calls of secession from the South East Region.
David Umahi spoke at a media event in Abuja organised by the Presidential Media Team..

The governor revealed that the agitation by the Igbo people fell on deaf ears by successive governments which has given rise to the Movement for the Actualization of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASOB,) Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB,) and the Eastern Security Network (ESN).

In his words: “We do not want to secede from Nigeria but we want a Nigeria where justice and equity prevails. We want peace. The situation in the South East right now is a situation in which non-violent approach of IPOB at the beginning has been hijacked by bandits, by cultists, by criminals,

“Some of them have been indoctrinated to believe that there will be no election in 2023 and that is very dangerous because if you say that there will be no election in your region, then the National Assembly could make an emergency law to say there will be emergency rule there and there is nothing you can do about it.

“So it is a very terrible mindset for anybody to be doing this because INEC offices have not been burnt in South-West or other parts of the country so we don’t know who is doing this but I know that they are criminals,
