Senator David Umahi, Nigeria’s Minister of Works, has stated that the region’s inhabitants will not join the nationwide protests against the high cost of living.

Over the weekend, Umahi spoke to reporters at his home in Uburu, which is located in the Ohaozara Local Government Area of Ebonyi State.

President Bola Tinubu has reportedly resolved the region’s most pressing issue—the persistent conflict between farmers and herders—according to the ex-governor of Ebonyi State.

The Minister underlined that the Southeast is currently facing its biggest problems as a result of its own actions, using the “unknown but known gunmen” as an example.

The constant confrontations between farmers and herders have ended, as you can see if you look closely, particularly in the Southeast.

Since the president has already resolved our main issue, we see no reason to participate in the demonstration.

We brought this mess on ourselves in the Southeast. Concerning recognized but unknown gunmen, that is the matter.

Who are we demonstrating against, therefore, if we do in fact intend to do so? The president has ended the fighting between herders and farmers, which is why we are protesting.

The Southeast will be entirely safe for farmers to operate in if the problem of unknown assailants is eliminated. Therefore, we are unable to go and join any other protesters.
