No Igbo Person Is In Support Of IPOB Agitation For Biafra - Okorocha


Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has rejected reports that some Igbo leaders are throwing their weight behind the agitation by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) for secession.

Okorocha, who is also the deputy Chairman of the Progressive Governors’ Forum, made this statement recently at the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Benue State where he went to sympathize and donate relief materials to victims of the flood disaster in the State.

He noted that no sensible Igbo person would leave behind their responsibilities and support an agitation that appears to be childish in nature.

"I have always said IPOB is an agitation group but the captioning is bad when you talk of sovereignty within a sovereign nation and also talking of secession

Let me assure you that no Igbo person or man is in support of secession and people must see this as a childish act and we must stand up and address it before it becomes a national problem.

As for us leaders in that area, it will be insane for anyone to think that the IPOB leader will ask us to follow him to seek secession. So Nigerians must learn to address it specifically. If you are addressing IPOB you should be specific and not to address it as if it’s an Igbo affair.

So I must say unequivocally that no leader in Igbo land is in support of the IPOB activities."

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
