South East Governors have appealed to agitators for self-determination in the region to halt hostilities and allow them negotiate solutions to age-long grievances with the Federal Government within six months.
Chairman of the Southeast Governors’ Forum, Dave Umahi, who demanded for understanding and time from the agitators, also said only those who want the current state of insecurity and killings to persist would oppose the recent ban on open grazing by governors of southern states.
Ebonyi Governor Umahi spoke on Thursday while featuring on the regular Ministerial Press Briefing organised by the Presidential Communications Team at the Presidential villa, Abuja.
The Southeast has for years been a hotbed of separatist activities with the Movement for the Actualisation of Biafra (MASOB) and Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) leading the charge against the Federal Government.
