Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has noted that the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, can’t speak for the people of South-East.
The Chairman of the South-East Governors Forum during a visit to Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, claimed that can’t represent the interest of the Ndigbo.
Umahi said, “We, Ndigbo, we do not support criminalities. Do not buy into any criminal that is from our side. I find it very funny when somebody is going to be claiming that part of Benue State must descend into his territory and part of Rivers State must descend into his territory. What sort of madness is that?”
“Even if there is a referendum, people must freely say where they want to belong to. You can’t force them. No matter the history you have, you can’t force people to belong to where you want them to belong. They want to belong to where they want to belong.”
“Why I am telling you this is that we should be wise not to support what is wrong. Let’s go back and tell ourselves the truth. What is happening cannot be said to be for Ndigbo. Those people are not speaking for us. What are you agitating for and you are destroying the properties of Ndigbo? Won’t that tell you that they are looking for something?”
