The leadership of Ohanaeze Ndigbo and other prominent Igbo leaders are currently on tour of the five South-East states of Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo, consulting with the governors in the quest to engineer total peace, unity and development of the region. The president general of the apex Igbo socio-political group, Chief John Nnia Nwodo, made the disclosure when the team visited the Enugu state governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, on Monday.
The Ohanaeze-led group, accompanied by the Obi of Onitsha, Igwe Nnaemeka Alfred Achebe and Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu, said it was at the Government House, Enugu as part of a routine consultation with Igbo governors “on matters of Igbo concern.”
The Ohanaeze PG revealed that, in the course of the consultation, they appraised the developmental issues in Igbo land and took brief on Gov. Ugwuanyi’s budget priorities in the areas of digital education, health, infrastructure, security, among others “and we are pleased with what he told us”.
The Igbo leaders expressed delight that the governor has maintained a peaceful atmosphere in Enugu state and equally reduced political differences to the barest minimum, such that there is no more issue of bickering or quarrel among political actors in the state.
According to Nwodo, “we have listened to the governor about things he has done to make Enugu remain peaceful and to ensure that the people of the state live in peace, and we commend him for what he has done to earn Enugu the enviable status as one of the most peaceful states in Igbo land and Nigeria.
“This is not the only governor we have visited. This is the third governor we have visited in the ten days. We have paid a visit to the governor of Imo state, we met with the governor of Ebonyi state this morning and we are going to meet with the governors of Abia as well as Anambra states in the coming days.”
