Ebonyi State Governor, Gov. David Umahi yesterday announced that his belief in a united Nigeria was unmatched while condemning the calls for secession by some groups in the country.
Umahi made this declaration in Abakaliki during the conclusion of the 8-day prayer and fasting session organised by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Ebonyi Chapter, over the security situation in the state.
The governor however explained that he believed in a country where oneness, freedom, equity, justice, fairness among other virtues prevailed.

‘I do not believe in second-class citizenship where a section of the country is being seen to be superior to others.

‘We are all created by God and no one should talk of disintegrating the country,’ he said.

He admitted that most of the secessionist groups’ agitations were genuine, noting that they could however be addressed.

‘I want Igbos to submit these agitations and I would lead the governors and leaders of the zone to the centre to address these grievances.

‘The groups can then do what they like if, after six months, we fail to address these grievances,’ he said.

Umahi urged the people to shun bitterness, anger, violence among other vices, to avoid bringing war and destruction unto the land.

‘We would tell the authorities in Abuja that our people are aggrieved but such cannot be addressed by insulting the president, governors, and leaders from other regions of the country,’ he said.
