Ebonyi Governor, Dave Umahi, has declared that the South-East does not want war nor the split of Nigeria, a position against the demand for Biafra nation.
The Chairman of the South-East Governors’ Forum, spoke on Thursday at the State House during a briefing.
Umahi described the situation in the South-East as a “mixture of reality, fake news and war propaganda”.
He admitted there are genuine complaints in the zone but that the agitations are now “turned violent” and have been “hijacked”.
“In the South-East, we don’t want war, we don’t want to secede, we want to be a part of a fair Nigeria where justice, equity and freedom exist.”
Umahi reiterated his call for dialogue to resolve differences and strengthen cooperation as a people.
The South-East has been under siege by ‘unknown gunmen’, leading to attacks on security personnel and facilities.
