How i will tackle secession agitation in South East – Peter Obi

The Labour Party presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi has revealed how he plans to address the perennial separatist agitation in the South East head on.

For years on end, there’s been violent agitation for a sovereign Igbo state by Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB)

Speaking on Arise TV morning show on Wednesday, Obi said the issue of agitation has continued to rear its head because government has not inevested in people and development.

He added that if elected as president of the country in 2023, he would engage in dialogue with those agitating for secession

According to him, the agitation was birthed by poor leadership in the country which, according to him, had been the issue with Nigeria over the years.

Obi disclosed that he had observed how issues of agitations were addressed in other countries

Clearing the air on his reported support for the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, the former Anambra State governor said he had never been involved in any agitation.

He said, “I have never been in any agitation. I had said that the agitation is because of leadership failure over the years. I will engage them in dialogue if elected into power”.
