While speaking on Tuesday during the activities marking the ‘2017 Ebonyi Peace Day’ in Ezillo, Ishielu Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, the state Governor, David Umahi, disclosed that the South-East Governors Forum  has resolved to rehabilitate and reintegrate members of the outlawed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB).

According to Punch newspaper, the Chairman of the Forum, said the governors, decided to proscribe the activities of the outlawed group to save the lives of 12 million Igbo living in different parts of the country.

Umahi also declared that the forum had no apology for proscribing IPOB, noting that the measure was adopted to restore peace and save the lives of the people.

“We have all agreed that some of our youths, who were misled in this direction, must be reabsorbed and reintegrated and be made  to do something with their hands.

“I have asked the Ministry of Economic Empowerment and Job Creation to open a register for some of our youths in this agitation, who were misled and did not understand what was going on. By my words, we are going to rehabilitate and re-integrate them into meaningful venture,” he stated.

The governor argued that the IPOB agitation was not about insulting the President or other ethnic nationalities, stressing, however, that agitation should be by peaceful process and that “the issue of marginalisation and agitation should not degenerate into self-help.”
