SouthEast Governors are making desperate U-turn on their initial position on IPOB and Nnamdi Kanu. They seem to be afraid of the backlash their condemnation of the separatist group is generating in their states.
Abia State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu is now singing a new song. He is now seeking ways to convey his new song to IPOB led by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.
“So some of those things Nnamdi kanu says are valid. Some of us can see it. We cannot continue to run away from the facts. But some of us do not agree with his style because I do not understand where he is going, when he intends to pull the brakes and when it is going to stop.
‘If I have a way of conveying my view to the leadership of the group what I will say is they should find the way to enter into conversation and let people know.
“I don’t understand their strategy and purpose; I don’t understand why they are attacking institutions of civil rule. A lot of people who are apologetic to some of these strategies don’t even know they are riding the tiger’s tail.
“If the police and military withdraw and then brigands become enforcers of the law and order, if you have a quarrel with your brother, how do you resolve it?
“Our national orientation should be willing to say sorry. No person can be right 100 percent all the days of his life.
“ Even in dealing with our children if we do things that are not right we should have the courage to stoop low and say sorry but to create an utopian aura that all is well is either nothing is wrong or I have done it , what can you do?”
Governor Okezie Ikpeazu said during his visit to TOS TV Network on 23rd of April 2021.
