Ikedife slams S/East Governors over petty feud

Ikedife slams S/East Governors over petty feud

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”.
