All is not well in South East – APGA chieftain, says Igbo leaders should meet immediately to tackle insecurity and unemployment in the zone

All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) chieftain and Chairman Okey Ezeh Foundation, Mr. Okey Ezeh, has called for a summit of all leaders of thought in the South East to discuss and find a lasting solution to the myriad of challenges facing the Igbos, properly engage the federal government and other geo-political zones.
Mr. Ezeh who spoke through a press release to newsmen in Owerri, insisted that it was becoming too dangerous for leaders in the zone to continue to assume all is well.
He said it was time for Igbo leaders to, irrespective of religious and political
lining to work together as-one people in the interest of the Igbo race.
According to the former governorship aspirant, “what is happening in the South East today is the result of many years of insensitive leadership, which may consume the whole of the region if urgent measures are not put in place to begin to tackle the problems of unemployment which is at the root cause of it all”.
He said that such summit should involve political leaders, professional bodies, members of the academia, traditional rulers, town union president general, religious leaders, notable youth organizations and security agencies.
He urged the people of the region to look beyond money and begin to give opportunities to men and women of proven character as the 2019 election approaches.
