Speaking earlier, the President of Ohaneze Ndi Igbo Worldwide, Chief Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu expressed satisfaction at the success of the meeting as problems of the region were identified and adequately discussed.

He gave his assurance that the problem of insecurity will soon be a thing of the past

It was an all-encompassing gathering of South-East Governors, National Assembly members, Houses of Assembly members across party lines, members of the Ohaneze Ndi Igbo and other stakeholders from the South East region.

Chief Iwuanyanwu said that Ohanaeze has given the governors and mem­bers of the National Assem­bly full mandate to secure the support of the presi­dent towards resolution of the security situation in the South-East, without which, he said, the development strides of the zone will con­tinue to suffer.

‘We have deliberated as Ndigbo, Ohanaeze, gover­nors and all leaders of the zone, in the Senate, House of Representatives, tradi­tional rulers, we deliberat­ed. The problem of the re­gion is Nigeria’s problem. It is beyond the capacity of the governors, Ohanaeze and leaders to resolve’, stressed Chief Iwuanyanwu.

On his part, Governor Uzodimma of Imo, who ex­tolled the leadership of the Ohanaeze in rallying sup­port towards resolution of problems facing the South- East said the governors and leaders are working with Ohanaeze to find lasting solutions to the problems confronting the zone.
