Monday September 18, 2017 – Abia Governor Praises Buhari For Averting Bloodbath In Aba Umuahia

The governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu on Sunday praised President Buhari for his decision to agree to withdraw soldiers from Umuahia’s streets.

IKpeazu also hailed the President for the confidence reposed in the South East governors to handle the issues concerning the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

The governor said that the near bloodbath which was avoided, “would have set back all we have done in the past two years in projecting the made in Aba products which will boost the revenue base of the state”.

He spoke during a visit to the Abia State Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ)secretariat to sympathise with journalists over the invasion of the secretariat by some soldiers last week.

Ikpeazu described the Igbo as the only group of people that showed true reconciliation after the civil war having found their way to all parts of the country and living peacefully with others.

He said reports available to him from leaders of Igbo union from the North show that over 11.6 million Igbo were living in the north.

    The blood of those killed are in your head and your torment will increase for supporting the killing of innocent people who are armed-less.
    If ever you and your cohorts are delivering by making your state habitable, who will ever have time to be clamoring for secession.

        My brother Endurance, even unity without love is useless. Uche,it’s certain that only Biafrans are practicing this one Nigeria,others are only saying it, an average Biafran is not looking for personal sharing of National cake except to put in place basic things that will let us know we are regarded as part of Nigeria and the hard truth is even the Nigeria masses are all left behind. One of the reasons people are against Kanu’s (IPOB) agitation is ethnicity issue,if not the Nigeria masses knows the core truth behind Kanu’s message.

          Back in 2014, when we had president Jonathan,Kanu believes in One Nigerian, but now he’s speaking of division, Why??? Just a mess people up in my own opinion.

        Not yet but am sure if most of us start thinking together believe that we are One Nigeria than we will get there in less than 50 years from niw, Nigeria is only 57years old, it took united States over 150 years for them to all to get along
