Chairman of South East Governors’ Forum and Governor of Ebonyi State, Mr David Umahi, yesterday, stated that the South-East governors have concluded arrangements to re-absorb, rehabilitate and empower youths who were misled by the agitation of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, in the country.
This is even as Anambra State government and a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN, Professor Ilochi Okafor, disagreed on the issue of Biafra during the commencement of the 2017/2018 Anambra State legal year.
Governor Umahi , who spoke during the Ebonyi Peace Day celebration at Ezillo, in Ishielu Local Government headquarters in the state directed the Commissioner for Economic Empowerment and Job Creation, Uchenna Orji, to begin the immediate compilation of the names of the youths with a view to assisting them become self-reliant, economically self-sufficient and meaningful to the society.
Umahi further stated that the proscription of IPOB has helped in saving the lives of over 12 million Igbo and foreigners across the country, stressing that the importance and sanctity of human lives cannot be over-emphasized.
He expressed dismay over the methodology being used by the IPOB to achieve their mission, adding that it was wrong for the agitators to start abusing other ethnic groups in the course of their agitation.
The governor appealed to the Ezza-Ezillo communities to do their best by ensuring lasting peace in their communities as the state government was committed to the peace and development of the area.
Highlights of the occasion included the final signing of the peace agreement between Ezza and Ezillo communities, release of peace symbol (pigeons) by the governor and dance and band performance by both parties.
