South-East governors, who met with leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu behind closed doors at Government House, Enugu, have urged him to embrace dialogue.
Chairman of the South-East Governors Forum and Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, revealed this in a communique he read after the parley.
According to the governors dialogue and not confrontation was the only panacea to the agitation by IPOB.
Umahi said, “The meeting agreed that these demands by IPOB should not be absolute, rather the South-east Governors shall immediately engage the leader of IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, and the entire leadership of IPOB to further meetings and dialogue with a view to quickening the resolutions of all issues amicably.”
The meeting started at about 2 p.m and ended by 4.30 p.m.
The IPOB leader arrived Enugu Government House thirty minutes before the meeting, in company of a constitutional lawyer, Ben Nwabueze, who is the leader of Igbo Leaders of Thought, ILT, and Eliot Uko, deputy secretary of ILT.
