Some Southeast Govs Benefitting from Region’s Insecurity – Imo Lawmaker

A House of Representatives member representing Ideato Federal Constituency in Imo State, Ikenga Ugochinyere, has said that some southeastern governors have failed to end the crisis in the region “because they are benefiting from it”.

The lawmaker made the statement during a chat with AriseTV regarding the incessant security challenges in the region.

“The president has so much power in the constitution that he could use to bring the matter to a close within the shortest possible time. But the southeast leaders need to sit down to find common ground,” Ugochinyere said.

“The most important thing is that we want peace in the southeast because everywhere is devastated. Erosion is killing us. Infrastructure has collapsed. And then we cannot even sleep because our houses are being burnt and our people are being killed. This is not good.

“Any leader that wants the progress and unity of Nigeria definitely will open his doors to allow stakeholders to come in to allow stakeholders to find a lasting solution.

“And I’ve this belief that the present administration going by what they say that they’ll run an inclusive administration and that they’ll ensure that there’s unity across all parts of this country, will consider the release of Nnamdi Kanu as a critical step towards that part of finding that lasting solution,” the lawmaker added.
