The South East Governors Forum has called on the Federal Government to adopt a political solution in the case of the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu.

The governors made the call on Sunday after an emergency meeting held in Enugu.

The demand formed part of a communiqué issued at the end of the meeting and read by the forum’s chairman and Governor of Ebonyi State, Chief David Umahi said, “South East Governors are watching with keen interest, the developments with respect to the case of Nnamdi Kanu vis-a-vis the court rulings.

“However, we believe that a political solution is still possible in this circumstance.”

The governors decried the state of insecurity in the region and expressed worry over economic activities which have come to a halt while kidnapping and wanton killings have become the order of the day.

They also resolved to set up a 24-hour joint patrol on all major highways in the region.

“South East governors call on the Federal Government to come to our aid in providing security in the zone bearing in mind that elections are around the corner.

“Meanwhile, South East Governors have agreed to set up a 24-hour joint patrol in all major highways within the South East, especially during the Christmas season,” Umahi added.

The governors commended the states and the Federal Government on efforts so far made to alleviate the sufferings of the victims of the recent flood in the country and expressed the hope for a desirable long-term solution.

The governor added, “South East governors have decided to put funds together to further assist victims of flooding in our five states in the South East.

“We also plead with the Federal Government to please initiate action in the dredging of rivers in the South East, to ameliorate the destruction of houses, farmlands and properties. We request the Federal Government to come to the aid of the victims in terms of rehabilitation of the internally displaced persons.”
