Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has told the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) that his state will not be part of the struggle for a sovereign nation.
The Chairman of the South-East Governors’ Forum and former Presidential aspirant asserted that Ebonyi people are marginalised and not regarded in the South East.
Umahi disclosed that the marginalisation of his people is the reason the state will not take part in the struggle for the actualization of Biafra.
He made this known on Sunday during a reception to welcome him back to the state after the recently-concluded All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential primary in Abuja.
He said: “In the comity of South-East, Ebonyi people are not regarded. I continue to say that Ebonyi will never be Biafra.”
