BREAKING: South-East Governors Ban IPOB Activities

BREAKING: South-East Governors Ban IPOB Activities
Activities of Indigenous Peoples of Biafra, IPOB, in all five states of South-East Nigeria has been banned. This was announced by Chairman South East Governors Forum and Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, after a cloed door meeting South East Governors Forum had with South-east leadership of the National Assembly, and Ohanaeze Ndigbo.
“In view of the prevailing security situation in the South-East and its attendant consequences, the South-East Governors hereby resolved as follows: “All the activities of IPOB are hereby proscribed.
IPOB and all other aggrieved groups are advised to articulate their position on National issues and submit to the committee of Governors, Ohanaeze Ndigbo and National Assembly members from the South-East zone through the Chairman of South-East Governors Forum”, he said.
Nigeria’s former President, Olusegun Obasanjo who had a chat with Newsweek, said Pres. Buhari must meet with Nnamdi Kanu, before the ongoing crisis gets out of hand.
Obasanjo said: “I don’t see anything wrong in that [Buhari meeting with Kanu]. I would not object to that; if anything, I would encourage it.” .
“I would want to meet Kanu myself and talk to people like him, people of his age, and ask ‘What are your worries?’ .
Not only from the southeast but from all parts of Nigeria.” He said the army’s “heavy boot” response to pro-Biafra sentiment is “not the solution” but adds that the secession craved by IPOB is not the way forward either. .
“We need to satisfy the youth in job creation, in wealth creation, in giving them a better, fulfilled life, in giving them hope for the future. There’s no easy way out,” he said.

  1. I kinda don't understand this barbaric African utterances and mode of governance.Chief executive of the state CANNOT BAN an international organization without due court process if the operators violate laws of the host state(s). They should follow due process to argue that the organization have violated term of its operation in their respective states. i don't know these supposed "African literate leaders" do not have idea how to operate in a democracy. They need to be lectured and NOT parade around with buzz words they no nothing about.
