Governors of the five states of Nigeria’s South East have resolved to seek dialogue with President Muhammadu Buhari, in search of a political solution to the travails of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of IPOB, the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra.
Kanu faces charges bordering on treason and remains in the custody of the Department of State Services, DSS.
Buoyed by the intervention of Ohaneze Ndigbo, which facilitated the cancellation of IPOB’s intended weeklong lockdown of the South East, the South East Governors’ Forum, on Thursday, announced plans to meet the President within a short period from now.
The Chairman of the South East Governors’ Forum and Ebonyi Governor, Dave Umahi disclosed this in a statement.
Umahi thanked Ohanaeze Ndigbo for a good job done, through their committees, in proffering solutions towards addressing issues raised by IPOB agitators.
“Governors (South East) are studying their reports and very soon, we will be meeting with the Federal Government of Nigeria on these issues, including deploying political solutions in the case of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu which we have already initiated”, Umahi said.
