Some political leaders in South Eastern Nigeria are urging the Federal Government to step in and restore order as part of a larger effort to end the region’s turmoil and insecurity.
This follows a meeting of regional governors and members of the National Assembly on Monday in Abuja.

Remember that the sit-at-home order put on the people as a result of the actions of Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB has resulted to a suspension of companies and academia in the region.

Senator Hope Uzodinma, governor of Imo State and chairman of the Progressives Governors Forum, has indicated that regional governments require help from the federal government to handle security concerns.

South and East leaders from all parties were present for the closed-doors discussion.

The decision to approach the Federal Government for help was reportedly made public by Uzodinma.

Ohaneze Ndigbo President General Emmanuel Iwuanyanwu and former Minister of Labor Senator Chris Ngige were among the notable political figures there.

Beyond the banned IPOB’s sit-down order and gunmen attacks, political leaders have stated a shared commitment to resolving the other obstacles to the region’s growth.
