Former governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has decried the inability of the South-East Governors’ Forum to meet and discuss critical matters that will enhance the development of the zone.
He said it was time for the Ndigbo to come together and work with “voices of quality.”
Obi also appealed to traditional rulers and members of the clergy in the zone to quickly help to bring the Igbo people together, rather than allowing the politicians to do all the talk on matters affecting the Igbo.
The former governor spoke during a public lecture with the theme “Religion and Culture in Modern Igbo Context,” organised by the Alaigbo Development Foundation (ADF), at the Toscana Hotel, Enugu.
“If governors don’t meet, who will meet? For eight years, we tried it and it worked but since we left, they have not met,” he said. (Daily Trust)
