The Governors of the South-East have mocked the security outfit set up by the leaders of of the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
The Chairman of the South-East Governors Forum and Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi who spoke on behalf of the other Governors said that the people of the region should ignore the so call security body
Umahi described the outfit as ridiculous, stating that Southeast Governors are capable of securing the state.
He made the remark while having a chatt with reporters on issues relating to the region
He said, “Our region remains the safest, and nobody can deny this. And so, our brother said he had formed a security outfit for the southeast. It is very laughable and should be ignored. I commend the southeast governors very highly. It is only the southeast that the leaders are being criticized openly.
“The governors must protect the lives of the citizens and also the citizens of other regions living in their states that are not from the southeast.
“I want them to ignore the side distractions. They are doing a lot in the education of our people, payment of salaries, infrastructure development, and most especially the security of our people.
“No governor will come open to tell you A to Z of what he is doing about security. But I want it to be debated whether the southeast is not the safest in the country. We need to warn that our youths should desist from being engaged for the destruction of lives and property.”
He noted, “Whether we like it or not, we are confronting global challenges, and Nigeria is not an exception. So, we thank God for the courage, ability and the health God gave our president to steer the ship of our nation in a very challenging time like this
