Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State has said that if there is any group in Nigeria, in need of peace, it is the Igbo, who are found in all parts of the country doing business.
Ikpeazu made the remark when he received the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, who paid him a courtesy call.
“If Nigeria is perpetually in trouble, it will not augur well for the Igbo, who are republican and found everywhere in the country,” the governor said.
According to Ikpeazu, Igbo are desperate for peace in Nigeria.
He said the people of the state would continue to support President Muhammadu Buhari in his efforts to move the nation forward.
The governor, who donated two Hilux vehicles to support the army in the state, commended the military for degrading and decimating the Boko Haram terrorists in the North-East.
He also commended the army for curbing violent crimes in the state, as well as pipeline vandalism.
Buratai had informed the governor of the ongoing “Exercise Python Dance” in the South-East, explaining that it was meant to train troops on internal security.
