By Nwafor Sunday
The governor of Imo state, Hope Uzodinma, Sunday said that Ndigbo wants justice, equity, fairness and not Biafra.
“What Ndigbo wants is justice, equity and fairness. A Nigeria that provides a level playing ground for all citizens. That is what we want, not Biafra”, he said.
Uzodinma disclosed this while delivering his opening address at the first South-East security meeting, in Owerri, the Imo State capital that berthed ‘Ebubeagu regional security outfit’ in the South East.
On insecurity bedeviling Owerri, Uzodinma debunked myriads of theories propounded by few Nigerians, noting that they are further from the truth.
According to him: “Following Monday’s attacks in Owerri and the preceding ones in various parts of the South-East, many people have come up with varying degrees of theories concerning the motive of the attackers and its consequences on our people.
