As the protests by pro-Biafra groups continue to gain momentum amid allegations that the agitators are receiving tacit support from former public office holders under ex-President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration, political leaders in the South-East have agreed to convene a meeting in Enugu on Sunday.
The meeting is expected to be attended by Governors of States in the South-East, National Assembly members from the zone and the leadership of Ohanaeze Ndi-Igbo, the apex Igbo socio-cultural organization.
The announcement of the meeting was contained in a statement issued by Chief Press Secretary to Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state, Sam Onwuemeodo, and made available to newsmen in Owerri, the state capital on Friday.
The statement said the meeting was in continuation of the governors’ earlier deliberations on the best approach to resolve the lingering issue of the pro-Biafra protests.
“It is also on the demand by the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB), which had gained momentum in recent times.
“The meeting is slated for noon at Government House, Enugu”.
The statement explained that the governors had met on Tuesday at a meeting presided ober by Okorocha and participants sued for peace.
