Former President- General of the apex-Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Chief Dozie Ikedife has condemned what he termed as disharmony existing amongst governors of the South East geo-political zone.
He stated that the development portended grave danger for the people of the area in the country’s political considerations.
Ikedife who spoke to journalists in Nnewi, his country-home, however described the current movement of many Igbo political heavyweights into the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) from their erstwhile parties, especially the Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) as a welcome development for the interest of the people of the zone.
Stating that the interests of the entire people of the South East geo- political zone should rather be the guiding principle of the respective governors of the state, rather than their personal interests, the Ikenga Nnewi lamented that the current conducts of the governors fell below expectations.
“My assessment is that the current posturing of the governors of the South East fall short of expectations; particularly, we expected synergetic and harmonious co-operation amongst them for over all interest of the people of the South East geo-political zone.
“I am aware that the elected Governors of the states should look at, and work for the interest of the South East and Nigeria. These should be the guiding principles, not only to focus on their states or winning elections in their states.
“The people of the South East should unite in the eyes of the rest of Nigeria. If that is the case, people at the helm of affairs must see themselves as comrades in arms. There is an Igbo saying “Onye gburu Nwanne ya aburo dike” meaning, “Anybody who kills his brother can never be declared a hero”.
