FG Promises To Address Issue Of Marginalization & Other Demands In The SE by Wisdomkosi(m): 9:54pm On Jun 11
~As Igbo Leaders restate commitment to a united Nigeria

The Federal Government has stated its commitment to addressing incessant herders-farmers clashes, marginalization and other issues that are causing serious unrest in the South East Zone of the Country, Igbere TV reports.

The Minister of Defence, Bashir Salihi Magashi made the commitment when he led a Federal Government delegation to address southeast Leaders at Lion House, Enugu State on Friday.

While assuring the southeast leaders that the issues of instability and other fundamental issues as it affects the Zone would be addressed, the Minister emphasized that the allegations of marginalization would also be comprehensively addressed when the leaders articulate all the demands of the Zone and present them to the Federal Government.

The Defence Minister called for concerted efforts from all Nation leaders to holistically address the issues of instability in the Country.

He also called on the Press to do more through the instrumentality of their media to tackle the Nation's challenges.

"Issues raised comprised the instability and the criminality affecting the Country in general and we are happy to discuss the ones that are peculiar to this part of the Country.

“We have agreed that there are underlying issues that need to be addressed. One, the herders' conflict should be seen from the perspective of National interest.

“Second, we discussed the problem of marginalization which I think is well accepted and we will speak with Mr. President to listen to the grievances after the Governors must have articulated the demands of the region.

"We have agreed that southeast leaders are committed to the Unity and stability of this Nation and we are giving them the assurance and confidence that this commitment will be relayed to the Federal Government through the Commander-in-Chief.”

The Chairman South East Governors' Forum, Engineer David Nweze Umahi thanked the Federal Government for showing genuine willingness to address the demands of South East and reiterated the commitment of leaders of the Zone to a united Nigeria where all citizens have equality of right.

He condemned the incessant violent attacks on Security Agencies and Security formations in the Zone by some unknown gunmen saying the southeast leaders are not in support of such activities.

"I want to thank this powerful Federal Government delegation led by the Honourable Minister for Defence to South East. Our people are excited about this commitment and we are very much satisfied with this visit, for me and the rest of us, this is a genuine commitment, it is a new dawn for southeast and entire Nigeria.

“We discussed the ban on open grazing and this delegation is also in support of open grazing ban, we also informed this delegation that each of the states of the South East has laws in this respect.

“We have also agreed to articulate all that is our grievances and concerns and present them to the Federal Government and we are happy that there is a genuine willingness for further dialogue on such issues.

“We are committed to one united Nigeria, a United Nigeria of equality, unity, justice and fairness.

“Those who dish out the threat of secession do not speak for southeast and we do not support such agitations"

Governor Umahi clarified that the Ebubeagu Regional Security outfit is the only recognized Security outfit empowered to complement the conventional Security Agencies in tackling criminalities in the Zone.

The interaction was attended by Governors of South East, Ministers, Senators, Ohaneze Ndigbo and other Political Officers from the Zone as well as Religious and Traditional Rulers among others.

Buhari has a history of not fulfilling promises..

The igbos know this, That's why the entire south east and south south rejected him during the general elections..

The elders and leaders still went to prostrate and lick Buhari's ass after he promised to speak 1967 dialect of the language they understand

The Eastern leaders want a United Nigeria, yet can't call NK to order and stop the agitation that is snowballing to serious unrest and wanton killings / destruction.

If not for Nnamdi KANU there wouldn't have been such meeting, Fulani only understand violence for violence.
All the coward south eastern governors that never supported ipob have all become stakeholders of the very purpose KANU laboured for. If you think KANU has achieved nothing then you need a rethink.

"IPOB Like A Dot In A Circle - We Will Defeat Them" - PMB

Sometimes i wonder if PMB is really in touch with the reality on ground.
I read where Mr President said "the elderly people, they said this time around there would be no (secession). And again the youth made the same statement; such encouragement elders & youths in South South telling you the'll remain in Nigeria."

Mr President, Those elders & youths in South South are not telling you the truth. People may dispute it but not for long.
If Ipob & the SE achieve their quest for Biafra,
I know the Ijaw nation & other indigenous people want to also secede & be independent from Biafra & Nigeria. But if you're of the believe that South South will want to be part of a new Nigeria when the Igbos secede, that means you're in for a shock.

NOW
Why do you think the Niger Delta Avengers & Egbesu Mightier Fraternity (EMF) gave the govt of Buhari 14 days for unconditionalor release of Nnamdi Kanu or they will start destroying offshore facilities in the region in 2016? Why did Annkio briggs visit Nnamdi Kanu at his hometown in Umuahia? What business did Asari Dokubo had with Nnamdi Kanu before they fall apart in 2019.
Are you aware that the war Lords of Niger Delta agitation like Government Tompolo, Ateke Tom, Tubotamuno Angolia etc are all in touch with Nnamdi Kanu and to your surprise they're solidly behind him? Anyway no need to talk much. Anyone who thinks Nnamdi Kanu & some ppl from the SE is solely behind this agitations & quest for Biafra doesn't know what is happening. The President foot soldiers should stop talking to politicians from South South cos it's either they're just telling him & the core Norths what they want to hear or they're being mischievous. There are many things behind the scene Mr. President, but What do I know.
