Barring any unforeseen circumstance, the planned meeting of the South East governors, the leadership of Ohaneze Ndigbo and other stakeholders, will now hold next Tuesday, in Enugu.
According to a press statement signed by Governor Rochas Okorocha’s Chief Press Secretary, CPS, Mr. Samuel Onwuemeodo, the meeting which was initially slated for Owerri, has been moved to Enugu, for strategic reasons.
“The expected meeting of the governors of the South-East states, the leadership of Ohaneze and other stakeholders, initially slated for this weekend in Owerri, at the instance of Governor Rochas Okorocha, to discuss the continued pro-Biafra protests across the South-East states and other neighbouring states, has been shifted to Tuesday, November 17, 2015”, Onwuemeodo said.
Okorocha’s image maker also explained that “the venue of the meeting has also been moved from Owerri to Enugu, which has been the traditional headquarters of the South-East states”.
Giving the reason for the postponement, Onwuemeodo said it was informed by the need for all those expected at the meeting to be in attendance.
“The South-East governors, Ohaneze leadership and others who will be at the meeting will deliberate on the pro-Biafra protests that had gained momentum in recent time and for the governors and other leaders to do what they are expected to do in the circumstance”, the CPS said.
