South East Govs, Stakeholders Reject Biafra, Demand Security Of Igbo In Other Regions

  1. Arising from the meeting of 11, June, 2021, with the Presidential team led by Hon. Minister of Defence, Major General Bashir Magashi (Rtd.), we agreed to a further
    meeting – consequent upon that, we scheduled a meeting today, for articulation of our positions and further meet with the Presidential team;
  2. The meeting set up Committees under Ohaneze to articulate and address our positions on all burning issues to further meet among ourselves and thereafter meet with the Presidential team:
  3. We, the Igbos do reaffirm our commitment to one united
    Nigeria under a platform of justice, equality of rights, fairness, love and respect for one another;
  4. We have noted threats by some groups against our people
    of South East, while we firmly promise to protect everyone
    either from other regions or ours, we plead with the leaders
    of other regions to protect our people living in their regions;
  5. We condemn the killing of security agencies, burning of
    strategic infrastructure and killing of civilians in South East and other regions. We request our security agencies to please discharge their duties within the rules of engagement and the law;
  6. We request our National Assembly from the South East to
    support State Police creation in the ongoing constitutional amendment;
  7. We condemn in totality, the activities of violent secessionist
    groups in South East and elsewhere, we firmly proclaim that
    we do not support them, they do not speak for South East. The impression that South East leaders are silent over some of our youths agitators for secession is not correct. South East Governors, Ohaneze President, National Assembly members, notable leader had come out publicly many times
    in the past to speak against such agitations. In order not to
    mismanage the unfortunate situation, South East leaders
    have set up a committee to engage such youths to stop and allow elders speak to address such fears;
  8. Meeting directed our Governors and Ohaneze Ndigbo to liaise with indigenes from northern part of Nigeria and indigenes of other regions to assure that the nation Nigeria and their people of their safety in South East.
  9. The meeting endorsed our South East joint security outfit – Ebubeagu and asked them to work with security agencies and to respect the rights and privileges of all those living in South East and our visitors;
