Archbishop lauds governors for dialoguing with IPOB


The Methodist Archbishop of Enugu Archdiocese, Most Rev. Christopher Ede, has commended South-East governors for dialoguing with leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu and his members.

The  governor met with IPOB chieftains a fortnight ago where they (IPOB) tabled their grievances to the governors in an expanded meeting held in Enugu.

Ede told Newsmen in Enugu on Saturday that he was optimistic the continuous meetings and dialogue would produce far-reaching outcome to quell the growing agitations in the land.

“First of all, I want to thank them (the South East governors) for swallowing their pride to meet with them.

“Because when we met at Nike Lake (Hotel) and some people were saying, isolate him; diminish him. That is not the right way to handle this matter.

“I thank God that they have now understood the meaning of dialogue.

“I thank God for the first meeting as well as other subsequent meetings and dialogues,’’ he said.

According to him: “I do hope the outcome of the meetings will douse the tension we have in the land”.
